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.
