Unemployed and Selling a Book

Thursday, November 5, 2009

Well, it's official.....the little bit of unemployment insurance I was bringing in, is now done.
I will still have some mystery/secret shop money coming in.
I enjoy being home though.If something comes along that makes me happy, fine,and if not, fine.We manage.
The book is what I am working on promoting right now.
I had a bigger book store turn it down though since the name wasn't on the spine of the book.As well, they said because we showed photos of older bills, people may consider it not a new book-geesh!
I am hoping to list it with as soon as I get word back from a US bank we signed up with.
In order to list the book on, we have to have a US bank account. We live in Canada.
So you may ask, why not list it with Good question. The reason is because the book is not in their catalogue and therefore I am not able to list it.With I will have to set up an account and input the book into their system...I am really hoping all this works once we get the bank account setting up all done. Ebay has not worked like I would have wanted it to.
Writing the book was easy-sort of-but the selling is tougher.
Anyone with any tips that has written a book- I'd love to hear from you.


  1. I think it's great that you wrote a book. I'm sure you'll figure out how to get it sold, as well. I will be curious to know how you sell it or find a publisher to help you sell it. I'd love to write a book, but I just don't have the time right now. Your book has inspired me, though.

  2. The book was a book I had to pay to have printed- it set us back alot, so hoping to re-coupe that now.We had an in town publisher set it all up- doing the layout, design, etc.. then it went to the printers.
    The writing is easier than the selling..
