Isn't it amazing how people react? That's why Steve and I started Salvatore. A writer has to start somewhere, and despite all the snobbery in the industry, the general public have no idea what POD means, or how the business works. If you thrust a book in their hands, they're impressed, and if its well written and well presented, you're more than halfway there.

This is true. In general, the public don't really care which publishing company publishes a book.
It isn't like say, record labels, which can attract a cult following (think of Motown,
Stiff, Two-Tone etc); people couldn't care less about the identity of a publisher, they only care
about the skill of the author, the quality of the story, and to a lesser extent the
attractive quality of the cover
). So all in all, as long as the company & the author work together
to meet the criteria in bold, it doesn't faze the buying public if the book is published by Random House
or Salvatore Publishing. Think of your favourite authors over the years - could you really name all
the companies which publish their books?

Have to agree with that one Steve, the every day Joe would not know for sure and they are the ones buying them. Of course it will be different when Salvatore comes into its own, they will be breaking the door down for you guys to do the job.  ;D ;D

UPDATE: 48 copies sold, with a total of £87.22 raised for charity so far.

The book is now on Amazon but only 'in stock' on Amazon.com. Feel free to add your reviews, it will help our cause. :)

Thanks

Just wanted to let you know I received my Anthology (at long last!)

Read it from cover to cover and have to say I was impressed.

Congratulations guys - a job well done. :-*

I ended up having to order more copies of the anthology as Christmas presents.  I ordered them on December 21st.  I got an email on December 22nd saying they had been shipped priority (next to lowest cost) mail.  I got them in my mailbox on December 24th.  :D  Who says Christmas miracles have to be big?
I have a motto: when in doubt, go for the cheap laugh.

It only took seven days for them to be shipped all the way to Oz so they are pretty well on the ball Don.  ;D

I just ordered some more copies, this time from Amazon.com.
They cost me a dollar less each and I got free shipping.
Before I had to pay $12 shipping through LULU. YAY!
