A concerted attempt to get Waterstone's interested in my book.


I had what seemed to be a brilliant idea. Write to Waterstone's branches in towns with non-league teams, pointing out that they should stock the book on the grounds that the locals would be able to relate to it. Admittedly, the heading to my emails "Local Interest Book" may have been slightly misleading.

Around a hundred of these were sent to branches covering the country from the uppermost part of Cumbria to the South Coast. I then sat back, waiting to hear about orders pouring in.

I am still waiting. Only two branches have replied. Each has ordered two copies.

I am sensing I need a new strategy.

How about getting a book movie made and posted onto YouTube like Chopper and I did and then emailing the link to the manager at each Waterstone's?
