Every option isn't for everyone. I have bought my books to sell at book festivals and on consignment in independent book stores. I have always sold sufficient numbers to have a tidy profit in spite of the book festival "fee." By "tidy" I don't mean much beyond groceries, but then I like to eat.
The down side is the festival I did not attend; for that I still have 25 books left of 50.......anyone interested in a fire sale? Arirang: The Bamboo Connection at $10.00 plus shipping..... When Ghost Orchid brings me fame and a Lifetime Movie, you'll be able to say, "I read her debut novel."......:-)
