Sales Report…

Posted By on November 11, 2009

Well, it’s exciting to see copies of A Fine Day for a Drive heading out the door and into the post office! So far we’ve mailed copies all across Canada, as far as New Brunswick and Nova Scotia (I keep an online map showing where the books are going, and it’s starting to get a lot of markers on it).

A number of readers are ordering multiple copies to use as Christmas gifts. One local shop called me up to drop off a copy, and when I arrived they actually wanted five! Of course, that means they got an extra copy free (see Slim’s Bookstore for details on that).

In the promotion and advertising department, I just finished doing a Shaw Cable TV interview which will air within the next week locally (Okanagan Valley), and a newspaper in North Vancouver (the North Shore News) requested a copy for reviewing purposes – reprints of The Car Side column were published there for a number of years. Also here in the Okanagan Valley, Okanagan Life magazine (who I occasionally write for) is doing a book review in their Nov/Dec issue.

Canadian Technician did a great write-up in their Out & About section of the November issue (thanks, David!), and Motor Magazine (US) is going to publish an ad to promote the book as well. Two local bookstores (Coles Books and Lifesong Books, both in Penticton) are now selling copies of the book, and I’ll be doing an author signing on the evenings of December 18th and 22nd in Cherry Lane Mall.

All in all, we’re pretty happy with the response, and we know that as more folks hear that the book is now available for shipping, it will only get busier. Thanks everyone - I hope you enjoy the drive!
