Although I have had some really nice reviews for this novel, it hasn't sold well. In order to rub salt into my own wound, I thought we might visit some of the reasons you have not read this book. This will be a series of posts, one per week until either it sells better, or I tire of beating my head against a wall.
Reason #10 - "I don't see it on a shelf at my local bookstore/grocery/megaplex."
Ooh. And this is number ten?
You're right, though. It's very unlikely you'll find The Blank Book that way. Instead, you can get it at Resplendence Publishing, Fictionwise, eReader.com, Mobipocket.com, Barnes & Noble.com (ebook). If you're only into tree-based reading, you can order through Resplendence Publishing or Amazon.
Resplendence Publishing is a small press, and has a responsibly cautious business model. Spending large amounts of money getting our books into big name bookstores is not part of the plan, at least for now. Our books are also POD (print on demand). This means there isn't a warehouse full of Resplendence books waiting to be trucked here or there. When orders are received, the books are printed and shipped. No paper waste. How cool is that? How environmentally sound is that?
Most of the websites mentioned above offer you the opportunity to read the "back cover" blurb and an excerpt. This is close to the experience you would get by picking the book up off a shelf, reading the back, then reading a couple of pages of the beginning. (Open a jar of New Book Smell to get the full effect.)
The paperback is trade-size, very nice quality, and has good size, legible font. The ebook is available in a myriad of formats.
Well then. Number Ten is not insurmountable, right?
