Well, I checked my book sales today. Moderate? Let's say so. Discouraging? Sure. (But the reviews! Oh those reviews!) I was momentarily convinced that my book is just another debut novel being well-received by readers but not selling at the rate I would like. And then I went to amazon.com and noticed this.
A "Very Good" copy of my book is available from a retailer in Florida for a mere $41.15 plus $4 shipping. That's a whopping four times the retail price! Used! Very Good! A "Like New" copy will cost you 84 cents more.
How did my book get to Florida? I don't know. Maybe one of my "like"-rs went there on Spring break and needed to make a quick buck, so they sold it to "any_book" at a nice profit. Maybe I should be offended by that.
On the other hand, who cares! My book is precious cargo! And here I thought it just wasn't selling.
Ladies, and gentlemen, this is nothing less than an omen. The ladder climb continues. Watch out world.
I'm used, but I feel like new.
