This little post is actually directed at any and all publishing houses. I know that sales have been difficult this past year. There is one month out of the year that if you released new fiction books they are the easiest to sell. Why you ask? Well because of befuddled shopper is looking for a new book for the reader on their list. One their reader hasn’t read yet. Almost any book would do. But it has to be new and if it comes highly recommended all the better.
What is this magical month? December. Shoppers really are looking for that special book. They know that their readers wants something wonderful and new. But alas the shelves don’t have that many new books. So here is my plea, new fiction books in December are an easy sell, but I can’t sell what you don’t put in my hands.
Thank you for listening and maybe we will have better luck next year,
The Returning – Rachelle Dekker – #3 The Seer Novels – Twenty years have passed since Carrington and Remko Brant’s baby, Elise, was kidnapped and they were forced to leave her captive in the Authority City. Though they fled with the Seers far from Authority reach, they’ve never given up hope of rescuing their daughter from the man who betrayed them. Now Authority President, he’s ushered the city into a new era of “peace”―one where the Scientist Roth Reynard’s Genesis Serum has eradicated all memory of emotion or rebellion.
