It’s on the street!
That’s the “Theater Arts” section of the Barnes & Noble in the Summerlin section of Las Vegas. We trekked up there this afternoon to make sure our book was properly displayed. The store was in disarray! They were in the process of moving entire sections to new locations.
In spite of that, we were thrilled when a sales associate located our book and asked us if we’d like to purchase it. “No…” we said. “We’re the authors!” Hey! That was fun! Let’s go to the other B & N on the other side of town and do the same thing! Nah. Enough for one day.
We hear from a local comic that the other location was fresh out… or they couldn’t find it. (Not to worry, he’ll just order one on Amazon.com!) It would not be surprising if we learned they were sold out, considering that they’ll probably only stock one or two initially– then carry more as reviews and other press mentions drive customers. At least it is hoped.
In this day and age, it’s not so important to have all that many in stock, what with online orders and inexpensive shipping and Amazon Prime.
It’s significant that the first thing one encounters when entering this particular B & N is a giant display for the Nook, B & N’s color e-book reader. Too little, too late? We shall see.
