Steve, any tips on getting my book ON THE SHELF? EB are not very helpful especially when they see the title as well. What did Raider do to market it if anything?

Send me an email Brian, then we can discuss this without boring our friends here on the forum. I was lucky coz I got to know the manager of the EB I hang out in the most. I am, like all skeptics, a rabid bibliophile and spend enough time in book shops for the staff to know me quite well (I also belong to the Fanatics Club). The manageress got to know me too, and she said she could order 5 of my books for her store - it was like a personal favor to me. EB Head Office? Useless. Raider? They put your book on the internet.

Those 5 books sold out in about a month (thanks guys) so she ordered more. Now I'm gonna send an email to other branch managers (like Sandton, Menlyn) and, based on the relative success of the first five, try and convince them that it's worth their while to also order 5 books. It's a long process.

Some more good news: Exclusive Books Centurion now have another 7 of my book in stock. And it's on the shelf right next to God Delusion. Friggen cool. Other Exclusive Books branches will be able to get a copy transferred to a branch near you if you can't get to Centurion. If they transfer it from Centurion the book will cost you R102 - if you order it as a once-off import it will be as much as R160.00.

Prof Mabille from UP sent me an email with brilliant news: she read my book, liked it, ordered a copy for the university library, and says, "You make a better case than Dawkins". How cool is THAT?!

I know you guys are probably sick and tired of hearing about my book but I'm very excited about the way it's being received. I even have an article going into a US newspaper called Freethought Today - probably in next month's issue.
