Topic: Selling Your Books

Hi Greg,

My earlier email started me wandering around your site. I was a sales rep in Texas for Warner Publisher Services when Eon came out. I remember it well. It was the first Tor book I ever placed on the D/FW Airport Best Seller List. I had to talk and talk and sell my tail off and finally got the buyer to agree to 1/2 a spinner strip in each of D/FW's 13 stands. Well, Eon sold like crazy! I had to order in more copies, immediately, and the D/FW buyer gave me an entire spinner row. Eon stayed on their list for over a year and opened the way for me to place more Tor books on the list, as well. Ah, memories...

Thanks for the persistence, Pierce! EON is still selling steadily and in pretty decent numbers twenty-two years later. Airports are a very different market now...
