NEWS! Monique and I just found out today the reason for the books wide distribution delay. Seems our distributor rejected the book because we have text on the books spine and we listed the price on the backcover in dollars, pounds, euros, etc, and with the fluctuation of the dollar the prices we had on the cover were no longer correct. So we fixed all that and I ordered a new proof copy today. We should have the new proof by early next week and once it's approved we hope the book will be accepted and our wide distribution will kick in. We'll of course keep you guys posted to any and all news on the book. Dee - Chev writer dude

Darryl Hughes (thedeeman) says:

NEWS! BARNES&NOBLE AND WATERSTONES TURN DOWN CHEVALIER BOOK--BECAUSE IT'S POD!

 

Seems Chevalier has bumped head first into the stigma of POD. Both Barnes&Noble and Waterstones have turned us down about having the new book stocked on their shelves and only becasue it's POD. B&N saying so much as because it isn't with a major publisher, doesn't have a marketing campaign, they can't get their discount, and it's non-returnable they won't stock Chevalier. Waterstones said pretty much the same thing. But they tried to make a bright side by saying that it is available on their website and via special order in all of their stores.

 

Well, unfortunately one of these things is just not like the other. Having a book available on a website where folks wouldn't really find it unless they went to that site especially looking for it isn't the same as being on a bookstore shelf where folks are browsing for that next new book to buy.

 

With the publishing world turning more to DIY/POD in te future and POD books becoming more and more successful with every passing year, maybe B&N and Waterstones should peek into their crystal balls and see their future--And ours!

 

Pardon me for ranting a bit, but I'm just in a ranting a bit mood.

Monique and I got our sales report the other day and we actually sold a few copies. YAY! LOL!

 

We'd just like to thank the folks who bought a copy of Chevalier. If you did, we'd love it if you dropped us a line here or on our Facebook page and let us know what you think of the book, if you bought the book for yourself, who you bought it for other then yourself, etc. Little things like that.

 

To the folks still waiting to buy a copy of the book? What are you waiting for?! It's the best book E-V-E-R! LOL! :)

 

Thanks again guys.
