It comes with a slight downside. Yesterday I contacted Gardners about selling Richard The Third direct to bookshops through them. Unfortunately, because I've used my own ISBN number for both my printed version and the Ingram Print-On-Demand version, the latter is the only one that'll be available through their system. It is on sale at £8.99, the price that D2D/Ingram fixes once it's taken its percentage, whereas my Recommended Retail Price (as printed on my version of the book) is £6.99.
All this means is that, if you buy the book direct from me, it's cheaper, and it's signed. But it is very good news that international customers can get the paperback, as I know they can get from Barnes & Noble here, as well as from Amazon here.
D2D Oct sales - $90.48
Sept - £0, August $4.23, July $7.39, June $6.03, May $1.86, April $1.52, March $2.46, Feb $0, Jan $4.10
And how's this for a screenshot of my D2D sales for 2023, as of November 2nd. 10 copies of Richard sold in the first 2 days of November, taking it to 66 sales already (that's $14.98 already for November, which already beats every other previous month but October). The runner up Midsummer Night's Dream Team has only sold 14 copies all year, and the next best is Book Of Esther on 9.
