It has been over a year and a half since the release of B is for Berkshires and I have heard that sales are steady. My publisher said in 2015, they sold over 1,000 books.
From the book launch at The Parlor Cafe in North Adams on March 28, 2015 with author Joan Duris to various book signing events at locations including Water Street Books, The Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts Bookstore, The Adams Free Library, and even a Sheep to Shawl event at Sheep Hill where I sat at the Sweet Brook Farm booth where Zabu the llama was greeting visitors. Zabu is L is for Llama.
I have read to children at the Family Resource Center in both North Adams and Williamstown, read to students in Adams and North Adams during Dr. Seuss’s Read Across America Day in March, and even did a talk at the Clark Art Institute’s Book Fair.
The book is widely available at area bookstores including the Mass MoCA Hardware Store, The Berkshire Museum, Water Street Books, Berkshire Emporium and Antiques, The Clark Art Institute and even Barnes and Noble in Pittsfield as well as some bookstores in South County. However, I am looking to get it distributed more widely and boost sales.
I am available for book readings, signings, and other educational programs in libraries and the schools. My fee for a one hour presentation is $100 plus mileage.
