First, some good news for the beleaguered among you. I will be taking next week off. Of course, if you find yourself craving some red-hot McSciFi, you can just CLICK HERE to wallow in the awesomeness of it all.
Last week we began the Azoth Khem library promotion. Even after removing duplicates, and people who have other things to do, we still have a list of over 17,000 active librarians and book buyers. Since Azoth is listed in Baker and Taylor, America’s premiere book seller for libraries, librarians know they can trust the seller to deliver promptly and at a fair price.
Last week we introduced them to SPLICE: HIT BIT TECHNOLOGY. If you click that link you’ll see the same promo page librarians see. You’ll also note there are no purchase links. That’s because the only way you can buy is to have your library in the Baker and Taylor system. Since librarians know that, and there’s a reminder in the cover letter just in case, all they need are the ISBNs to plug into the search engine. Once they do that all the coo-coo coolness surrounding the title will be revealed.
This week they will be introduced to The Brittle Riders. Since the Omnibus is not available in print in most countries, we are just offering the trilogy. Nevertheless, people seem to like that option. Carrying around a normal sized book, as opposed to 1,200+ pages of a dystopian hellscape, is easier on the biceps I’m told.
When I get back we’ll introduce them to Goptri of the Mists: Kitaab Ek. That will complete their immersion into all things McSciFi for a while. After that we’ll introduce them to the rest of the Azoth Khem catalog.
Then it just becomes a slate of monthly updates to remind them we’re still alive and kicking. While this is a slow process, as libraries all get funding and make purchases on different schedules, the end result should be worth it. Besides, like any task, you can’t succeed if you don’t start.
Until next time, I wish you all nothing but good health, success, and happiness. Oh yeah, wear a mask, social distance, and get vaxxed. The world will like you more if you do.
