Here’s a follow-up to the post about the sales numbers on the GRS biography, which are low:
A comment by regular weblog follower and colleague “Teepee 12” mentions that those on a small fixed income can’t afford 25 bucks for a Kindle version, let along 45 bucks for the hard copy. She’s right – I can’t even afford to buy copies of my own book just now (and gave all my publisher’s copies to those who helped with the research and writing). So here’s an idea for others not in the 1% who want to read the book:
McFarland, an excellent publisher, aims their books at libraries, and the price is not unreasonable for those fine organizations. Ask your library to buy a copy. If they buy a copy, you can check it out and read it. So can a lot of other people.
And thanks to “Teepee 12” for the inspiration.
