I’m pleased to announce that my latest book (my tenth), the first of a new series of titles I’m doing with Dafina Books, BODY OF TRUTH just went on sale at all the usual online outlets. Just happened to tool over there to check out my numbers (very pleased to be at #11 thousand something, but these days we know that doesn’t last) when I noticed there were five, ahem, new and used books already for sale.
Jeez! How’d people read and return their books so fast? Of course they didn’t. All the books were new, of course, and the lowest price was more than a dollar off the retail price. Is it just me, or doesn’t it seem to cheapen the book they’re selling to have a lower price posted right there. That’s like shopping at Macy’s only tio have the saleswoman warn you that it’s selling cheaper at Syms.
I know Amazon doesn’t care since they make their money either way. Just wish I could stop getting aggravated every time I go over there.
