Tried Peddling My Books!
This afternoon, I went to the 57th Street Books on the South Side. I was hopeful that they would take La Bruja del Barrio Loco, but they don't take consignment books. I'd be willing to donate a few copies, but I have to email the manager and director. However, I did find a spot to leave my newsletter, but after looking at all the materials, I decided to craft a bookmarker instead. I would be more willing to grab a bookmarker than a newsletter. (There is a draft below.) They did say I could do an event, so maybe I could do a reading on the books in the near future. For now, I am happy to leave the print media.
One thing they did tell me is that they take books from https://www.ingramspark.com/, except that ingramspark charges to produce a print and e-book. I haven't had any experience with this service, but I am willing to look into the site, if independent bookstores are willing to use this service. However, I will have to try them for the next book, Rita vs the Duende. There are some restrictions with Amazon, but I can still use both sites to sell my books (I think. I haven't read the terms and conditions for ingram).
Stay productive and keep experimenting. #Resist
