Earlier in the week, I discussed the need to prepare for your first book signing event, but there are other ways to sell a signed copy of your book.
How about autographed, signed copies direct from your website?
That’s right. You can offer signed copies of your book to readers. This is something I hadn’t thought of until I read an article sent to me, from Janice Hardy written by J. Kathleen Cheney, @jkcheney .
The biggest question I have now is…
Do people care about signed copies of children books?
I’m not sure. So, I haven’t set up a retail page yet. But, I wouldn’t hesitate to sell a signed copy if it was requested. Hint, hint.
Another thing that has held me back from setting up an online store, is time. Time away from writing. I don’t want anything else to take my attention from, blogging, and writing. Life takes enough of my time and attention.
From what I understand, setting up an online store, may not be complicated but can be time-consuming to maintain. Just like everything else on the internet, if you want it to be successful you must babysit the darn thing.
Okay, meet me at the water cooler and let’s talk.
Also, have any of you set up an online avenue for readers to purchase directly?
How are the sales on your website?
