DOES YOUR LOCAL LIBRARY CARRY MY BOOKS?
People don't underestimate the value of a book being the library system. In Portland, for instance, they might buy a copy of my book for eight or more different branches, and if you think that each city across the U.S. could do the same, that adds up. This not only is a sales increase, but it also puts my material in an accessible place, allowing me to pick up new readers.
So, if you use your library at all, or even if you don't, consider requesting they get in Have You Seen the Horizon Lately? (ISBN: 978-1-932664-73-7). If you regularly visit a branch, they probably have request forms. You can also look online, as so many of the library systems now have internet databases. I love the one here in Portland. I reserve the books I want online, and they e-mail me when they come in. (And my home-towners, don't ignore this message. They don't buy my books automatically and don't show they have ordered Horizon as of yet.)
Please, take a moment and look and make the request if it's needed. It should only take a couple of minutes, and if you like my stuff, this is a way you can directly help get it in more hands!
