I just got word from Barnes & Noble — they are going to be carrying UFO2 (alongside UFO1) in their physical stores!
This is a pretty big deal. Few books from very small publishers like UFO Publishing are accepted for placement in physical B&N locations. They’ve been carrying UFO1 for about a year now, and I’ve received reports of it appearing in places like Texas and New Hampshire. This, combined with the best Amazon sales month ever, is really good news for the long-term viability of the series.
Of course, it takes a wheelbarrow of money to put together each book. That’s why Kickstarter has been so instrumental. It doesn’t cover 100% of the costs, but it covers a large enough chunk to make it possible for me to do All The Things in order to produce the best book I can.
To that end, I’ve been doing a bit of a media blitz, promoting the current Kickstarter campaign, such as this interview. I’ll be appearing on a few more blogs and podcasts in coming weeks to drum up support.
