Karyl, Laura, Barb, and Atticus!
In a radio interview the other day, Laura Lucy, the owner of White Birch Books, was asked if she'd ever sold more than a 1,000 copies of a book before. She thought for a bit and said, "Maybe the DaVinci Code or Harry Potter...but not since September 20th."
In only ten weeks the good ladies at North Conway's White Birch Books have sold more than 1,000 copies of our book. This is astounding at a time when small indie bookstores spend much of their time gasping for breath. The economy is brutal. Amazon is a beast. And yet here's little a little indie bookseller in the White Mountains selling so many copies of our book.
On Friday, HarperCollins celebrated this great feat by sending them a congratulatory cake from the White Mountain Cupcakery.
White Birch Books remains the only place you can special order a personalized autographed and "pawtographed" copy of our book. You can get one if we have an appearance somewhere but that won't be happening again until January. So if you would like to order a book from them give the ladies a call at (603) 356-3200.
