Hanging My Shingle

Some of you know that I have always wanted to own my own bookstore. Every time I pass an empty storefront in my little town, I fantasize about how my fantasy bookstore would fit into the space. I probably won't ever realize that dream. But I have started selling books.

I finally became a vendor on Alibris. I have only listed 28 books so far. (I sold one!!!) All are first editions. Most are signed. We'll see what happens. I need to make some space on the bookshelves for new additions and I can certainly use the extra money.

So, if you are an Alibris shopper, my vendor name is.......







Drumroll please.....

What a great idea! I love the name of your new store. You've already got a good selection. Nice work on the descriptions!

I put a link to your store on my blog, which I'm sure you'll see an enormous influx of traffic from (ha). I also corrected an oversight and linked to Crafting by Candlelight.

I hope you sell lots!

Thanks Gary! The hard part is that I won't have a seller rating until someone gives me one and you can't one until you sell something. No one wants to buy from an unrated seller! I hope my first customer is happy with her book and will give me a good rating!

great!!

Perhaps you were already planning to do this, but you could send your first buyer a follow-up email to make sure she was happy with the service and the book. That would give you an opportunity to ask her to give you a rating.

Looking forward to Biblioholics Anonymous becoming the next great online bookstore!
