Life ain't easy for a boy named Sue.
In trying to get my books in retail outlets I have had zip for positive results. None of the bookstores I have taken my smiling face and stack of books to has responded with, "Why sure. We'll set up a display right here in the middle of the path to the coffee corner." Or, even a, "Yeah, we'll stick a couple in here with the rest of the stuff nobody looks at."
But, I am working on an author's book display and signing at the local library. So far, 4 authors joining the party.
Keep writing. Mucho.
