Barnes And Noble
I have a friend who works in Barnes and Noble, who I've known for 7 years. At 80 years old, she's like another grandmother to me. When she heard about my picture book "Jack's Dreams Come To Life" being published, she was ecstatic. One day I asked her how I would go about trying to get it stocked in the store. A few days later, she emailed me and said that she had already sold 5 books and that the distribution manager said that if she sold 12, he would buy 25 books from my publisher. Well, she's now sold 15 and Barnes and Noble is buying 25 books to stock in the store. As some of you know, this is unheard of for self-publishers. I may even be able to do a book signing!
