So I’m still getting emails every morning tallying up the previous 24 hours’ book sales, which means… people are still buying the book. At a pretty consistent rate.

Which surprises me. I think I thought sales would drop off after the first week, but here we are in Week 4 and people are still buying the book and writing reviews on Amazon and Goodreads. That’s really good news, and I want to thank you all—AGAIN—for reading and supporting my book. ❤

And, on the subject of Goodreads…

I’m doing a Goodreads Giveaway next week. From Monday, June 19 through Monday, June 26, you can put your name in the Goodreads hopper to potentially win one of five signed copies of The Biographies of Ordinary People.

I don’t have a direct link to the Goodreads Giveaway yet, but if you tag my book as “want to read” on Goodreads, you should get a notification when the giveaway goes live. (Or so I’ve heard. I haven’t ever done this before.)

But entering the Goodreads Giveaway isn’t the only way you can read Biographies for free. Pronoun just announced that it was adding OverDrive and Bibliotheca distribution, which means that libraries will be able to order my book through both OverDrive and Bibliotheca’s catalogs.

(My book made it onto Bibliotheca’s catalog right away; still waiting for the confirmation that I’m on OverDrive.)

This makes it very easy for you to fill out one of those book request forms on your library’s website, asking them to add my ebook to your library. If you’d like more info about that process, I just wrote a post about it for Pronoun’s The Verbs!

(You can also request the paperback; it’s not available through OverDrive or Bibliotheca because those are ebook services, but it is available through Ingram Book Group.)

Last big news: I got to visit Pronoun’s office yesterday! It was so cool to get to meet all the people I’d been emailing for the past few months. If you are reading this post for self-publishing advice, I would definitely advise working with Pronoun to get your book published.

And yes, happy to answer any questions you have about that in the comments. ❤
