Self-Published Books and Christmas Bazaars

The third bazaar: This time I made bigger, more vertical signs and shared the stall with a friend. I sold six books, ten Christmas cards and twelve bookmarks, drank three cups of coffee, enjoyed a free salad for lunch, and ate almonds to keep myself awake.

Of course, one of my customers was my friend, but it felt good—especially when the man who said “I’ll be back” returned!

Meanwhile, the cathedral bookstore agreed to take some books on consignment—I’ll have to go down there and see if they’re selling.

So, no profits yet, but things are looking up.

That's good news to hear!
Usually, as word gets out about any good product you'll do better and better.
I'm glad the fellow came back. Some of your other, "I'll be back's" might be back later, too, when they have money, or are in a buying mood.
