This has got to be a GOD thing!
weeks ago when we had sold 1,040 books and not in any book stores, I decided to
be brave and see if Barnes & Noble would talk with me. I knew they
had our eBook and paperback on the website for a couple of days. When I
started calling different stores in DFW, Atlanta, and Austin all of the
managers said they couldn’t order it. For you who know me, that wasn’t the
answer I wanted.
Taylor, who wrote with me and set up our distributor, emailed me the name of
the VP of Sales/Buyer in Manhattan I should call as she thought it could at
least be sold on the website. NO ONE ever answers the phone but Jane Love
did!! I introduced myself and told her about OSB and my connection to
SKODAM and Ron. As we were speaking she said she was sending an email to
the man who decides and buys all of the books for biographies and if I didn’t
hear from him I was to call.
called this morning and we had an amazing conversation on the phone.
Before we finished talking, you would have thought I was in line with the “big
boys”! I told him I would like to have my book in DFW, Austin, and
Atlanta. I promised him that I would let my energies be directed to B
& N and knew that I was riding in on Ron’s coattails!!!!! He just
laughed but know he thinks the same thing.
talking with Edward I now have my first B & N book signing scheduled for
September 5th between 6p and 8p in the Ft. Worth B & N at
University Park Village! I asked the young man in Ft. Worth how many
books I would have to sell to get Edward notice me. He said anything
between 45 to 50! Please join me in asking God for that
number! Sweet Regan asked for 5 books so she can start marketing to her
church and friends. Other friends of Deborah’s are also helping me!
you know anyone even near DFW, by Monday I will have the poster ready
and can send a pdf version of it if you feel it might help spread the
news. I’m also going to call the FT Star Telegram to see if they will do
an article. I am overwhelmed at God’s grace and abilities to have this
happen to a West Texas girl named Daffny Snort, a snior from Sider
who stopped learning in the 7th grade!!!!!!
you to my dear friends who never stopped believing in me!
