amazon appearance

I just got word that my book is on Amazon, and sure enough... there it is, cover picture and all! Whee - that's fun!

Mind you, it's still better off for me (and faster turnaround) if people order from Lulu, but it's sure exciting to see it up on Amazon.

Interestingly, in the brief period between it hitting "Books in Print" and being up on Amazon, it was showing on Amazon under the "new and used - other resellers" section for $30. It seems those folks buy one copy of everything and slightly undersell Amazon. When there is no posted price on Amazon, they set the price as high as they want. Now, they are back down with the posted Amazon price at $16 and change. Curious.

Supposedly, while it won't be on shelves in Barnes and Noble, one should be able to go into B&N, and ask for it by name or author and they can order it for you.

Next up: a short devotional on worship, a sermon series plus study questions from the series this Winter... and "The Gift" - a novel I may complete on sabbatical. :)

Congratulations, Robert! Having a book on Amazon is a major accomplishment.

I hope you enjoy my graphs (evil survey) and feel free to comment.

God bless,

Russ

Thanks, Russ... "evil survey" sounds odd, but yes, I did see it an enjoyed mulling over the results. Thanks for coming by the blog (you are disciplined about doing so and I will gladly return the favor).
