Selling Our Anthology

It is hard selling books-harder to sell the books than write them-but the role of the author is also to sell. Our anthology Of Cake And Words was aimed for the Christmas market. It is the perfect stocking filler or Christmas present.

Yesterday it snowed. Today it is the Christmas Fayre. We've paid for our stall and so armed with cakes and books we slither through the snow and ice. We offer a piece of cake and some people buy our anthology. A whole day, but we sell twelve. One of the buyers works for the Book Council. Would we like our book listed on their site? A brilliant moment!

So a cold hard day, but worth the effort.

Copies Of Cake And Words are available through The Cwrtnewydd Scribblers website.

Of Cake and Words

Our writing group anthology has just been published and it's an excellent read. Only £3.50, with 50p from each copy going to the Air Ambulance. I sold some the other day and was asked to sign them-I felt like a celebrity. Perhaps we haven't produced enough with them selling well and sure to become collectible. We have booked a stall at the Christmas Fayre and hope to sell plenty.
