Never Leave Home Without One

Posted on: May 11, 2009

A book, that is…

I’ve taken to carrying around a copy (or two) of Tasting the Wind in the ruck sack that I take to work. Today I was in a multi-agency meeting, and someone who knew that I’d recently been published said that they’d like to buy one, so ker-ching! One more sale.

And as a demonstration of what a small world it is, the buyer was Kevin O’Hara, who himself is the  author of a book called  Tell Someone. Kevin originally self-published, then his book was picked up by a mainstream publisher. And, believe it or not, Kevin’s book sales have also raised funds for Derian House Children’s Hospice.

So Kevin bought a book, and during a coffee break someone else had a look at it and bought my second copy. A third person asked me to take a copy to the next meeting.

So the moral of the story is…

Never tell a POD/ self-published author that you’d like to buy their book… especially if they’re carrying a bag…
