Signing Stock for Killer Career At Barnes and Noble - Oh, My!! By Morgan Mandel


As soon as I opened the letter on Saturday telling me that Killer Career would be carried at Barnes & Noble stores, I cheered, then made a few phone calls to nearby stores. Was my book in stock or on the database yet? Yes, to both!
Sunday the DH and I happened to go out to lunch at Maggiano's in Schaumburg and just happened to stop by Barnes & Noble at 590 E. Golf Road in Schaumburg. Okay, I confess, it was a planned outing.
I was at Barnes & Noble to sign stock! Here's a photo from the momentous occasion.
While I was there, I met the new CRM, Dana Campbell. We spoke about a book signing in early November and will be firming up the date soon.
Also in the works are booksignings at the Arlington Heights, IL Barnes and Noble on October 17, and at the Deer Park, IL Barnes and Noble between Thanksgiving and Christmas. In January, a book signing will happen at Barnes & Noble DePaul Center in Chicago.
Before those book signings take place, you can bet I'll be slipping over to each store to sign stock. I'm hoping the stock will be gone before the book signings. That way the stores will need to order more!

That's so cool. While B&N will carry my books, you have to go to Customer Service and ask them to order them. I'm jealous of being able to do drive-by signings.

Yayyyyyy! I am grinning as I look at the picture of you signing stock. How exciting is that! I hope they sell out and have to order more - soon.

Schweeet!!! Huge congrats, Morgan! Isn't it a great feeling to be signing stock at a book store? The smile on your face says 'yes!'

Morgan Mandel said...

Yes, it's a great feeling. I probably appreciate it more than the average traditionally published author since it was a hard time coming.
