Last Chance to Buy from my Online Store

Well, like the title of this blog post says, this is your final chance to buy anything from my online store. I’ll be shutting it down at midnight for good. This means all my deals for combos for books and artwork will be gone as well. Thank you to everyone who has used this service provided to me by Square. In the end, it just wasn’t a profitable way for me to get my books to my readers. I’ll let Amazon do the work now, and simply focus on my writing. It needs all of my attention.

When I first started doing the writing thing, I jumped at every opportunity to get my name and brand out there. While I was doing this, I let the quality of my prose slip a little bit as I tried to find my audience. Now, after nearly seven years of self-publishing and blogging, I see now where my energies should be applied, while at the same time honoring the stuff I’ve done before. I’m still going to self-publish the rest of The Greenland Diaries, and the sequels to Beware the Ills, but all other projects will be funneled into a traditional publishing setting. This is another reason why I’m shutting own this online store. I don’t have the time or energy available to make it profitable and updated.

Again click HERE to visit my online store for the last time.

So, once more, thank you to everyone who has stuck it out with me and supported this blog. I’m still going to update it, so this isn’t really a goodbye, just a step in a different direction. I’ll still be selling my books at conventions and other places, just not online anymore through a Square store. Thank you everyone. Your support means the world.

Thank you.

Online Store Shutting Down

Hey all, I mentioned this last week in my Monday Musings, but I’m shutting the digital, non-existent doors on my online store. It was an experiment in profitability and selling books that never truly came to fruition. I’ve found that selling my books specifically though Amazon is still the best way for me to make a living and keep the cost of expenses low. So as of this Saturday at midnight (1/26), I’ll be turning off my online square store. This is your last chance to buy signed books directly from me with the combos that I provide in that marketplace, or buy any of the visual art.

Just because I’m closing up shop on this nonphysical corner shop doesn’t mean you still won’t be able to buy signed copies of my books at conventions, readings and other events. I’ll still be selling my physical books in person whenever I can. There is too much overhead with me shipping out the boxes myself. I have made no money from it in the three years I’ve tried.

So again, take a look at my store for anything you might want before it shuts off this weekend. Now, if you really needed a signed copy and you weren’t going to see me anytime soon or ever, you can always email me at basementsaid@gmail.com and ask me what your options are for buying books directly from me. I will more than likely make accommodations. I’m just trying to make a few changes where I can to carve out a better living from this very fluid business. Thank you everyone for the continued support and have a safe week.
