I'm a Montana author and I have an idea for a book. It's called Paranormal Montana and it goes into all kinds of things, such as:
Flathead Lake Monster;
I write about this stuff on my website sometimes and it's pretty popular. I wonder if you'd be interested in a compendium of sorts.
Back in August I wrote that email to every small Montana printing press publisher I could find.
Of those 10 or so publishers, just one got back to me. It was Chris at Helena’s Riverbend Publishing.
“No thank you,” he said.
No one else bothered to reply.
Well, their loss.
As of yesterday, Paranormal Montana has sold 100 copies.
Sure, that might not be a whole lot for the mainstream publishing business, but it means I’ve made $296 off the book.
Not a whole lot, but it’s all profit.
And what’s more, those profits will continue to roll in every month for years.
Paranormal Montana is my 16th bestselling book.
It’s a fun read, and if you live in Montana I know you’ll enjoy the strange tales.
Check it out on Amazon or iTunes or anyplace else books are sold.
Well, not anyplace – you won’t be finding it in any Montana bookstores.
Yeah, I emailed all the ones in Missoula – none are interested in carrying my books.
Much like the publishers, their loss is my gain.
