A few days ago I picked up some books I had on consignment.  It was kind of disappointing.  They sold about half of them. But bringing the other books home wasn't fun.  I haven't had much luck on this track. I tried it because I'm not as well known in Tucson as I am in Colorado.  In Colorado I attended more events and even managed to get quite a few books in area libraries. In Tucson, not so much.  

Then there's the bookstore itself.  Frankly, I don't like the way the place is run.  The local author area is segregated from the main horror and science fiction areas. If someone wanted a horror anthology, they would be taken to a completely different part of the store than where my books were.  To solve that I  eventually went into the store and moved some of my books to their proper genre area.  I don't know if these are the  ones that actually sold or not.  

Most of my books being sold are ebooks.  I do fairly well on print books at cons I'm attending when I am actually there to push books.  And every now and then there's a spurt on Amazon for no explicable reason.   Some books sell really well as ebooks whilst other ones never sell as ebooks but sell in print. I can't really find any logic to it.

That said, Legends of the Dragon Cowboys seems to be doing fairly well.  I look forward to my next earnings reports.
