Sandra Ruttan said...

Thanks everyone - Sela, LOL!

And Anne, geez, you'd think you'd get a complimentary copy from the publisher for blurbing it. Things that make you go hmmm.

You know you've hit the big time when white trash everywhere can pick up your book at discount prices.

Seriously, that's cool. I may actually have to stop by my Wal-Mart and see if we're one of them.

Actually...it's not strictly true. Wal-Mart has many, many books on order than will actually be available in stores because they have access to Ingram's entire catalog. Since SUSPICIOUS CIRCUMSTANCES is available through Ingram, Wal-Mart will list.

Sandra Ruttan said...

Actually, just because a book is on Ingram it doesn't mean a place will definitely list it, considering people here who told me they dealt with Ingram aren't carrying the book and have told me they won't. You can't go to Chapters/Indigo and order my book but you can order it into WalMart if they aren't stocking it, and that's nice.

And I know of other books on Ingram that aren't listed with WalMart. It isn't hard to do a search.

Wowee Zowie!!!

That is so totally cool! I'll have to see if it's in ours!

sandra, i've never gotten a copy from a publisher for any book i've blurbed. not that i've blurbed that many, but it wasn't anything i thought about so please don't worry! i was in the middle of revisions when the book came and i didn't even see my blurb until yesterday. sheesh!!! i'll blame it on lack of sleep and a UTI, although i don't think there's any way in hell to blame it on a UTI. the acknowledgement page was a project in itself. :)
