Hello all,

I have some good news I would like to share. I just closed the deal for the local Borders Bookstore in Niles OH to carry my book "Inside the Insane" in their store. Now I can write the press release for the local newspapers. I was waiting on this before I did the release. Book Nook Bookstore in Sharon PA has been carrying the book in their store now for about a month... but Borders is huge.

Thank you. I have a book signing this Saturday in different book store in Cleveland OH. as well. Things are going good so far. Hopefully I can use this PR to get a book signing in Borders as well.

Well, if you're not moving forward you're either standing still or sliding backwards and neither of those are good things.

Congrats, Paul :afro:  Well done and the very best of luck with sales :smiley:

How do I get a signed copy of your Inside the Insane from over the pond, Paul? I see it is on Amazon but presumably those will not be signed?

Give me your address and I'll calculate shipping cost... come up with a total (I'll only charge you $10 for the book, Amazon & Borders charge $15.99 unsigned) ... then if you despoit the money into my Paypal... I'll sign and send you a copy personally. How's that for service?

My e-mail address is: PaulC44446@Hotmail.com

Will do, Paul.

I have a slightly different problem in that it is my publisher that distributes the books. I visited him over the summer - he lives on the other coast of Britain to me, which I know is only a spit away in American terms - and signed a boxfull, but they're now sold. But he has given me 25 copies now so that I can sign and post off scribbled-on copies for those thinking I might be worth something in years to come ;)

My publisher gave me the first 100 copies that were printed. They also distribute the books themselves. They service Amazon.com and Borders.com and a hand full of other sites. I signed and numbered the first 100 copies. Those are all gone. I contacted them and they gave me a really good deal on more of the books so I would have more to distribute myself. I got your e-mail with your address. As soon as I can get to the post office I'll e-mail you back with the total.

This will make 2 people off this board that has purchased a signed copy directly from me. Is there anyone else that would like a signed copy for far less than what the retailers are selling it at???
