I have sold more print copies face to face than I have ever sold online. As with local marketing to local radio and media, this can very often be the most effective way to sell your books.
To be honest we have got carried away with the notion that we have this global market place that we must conquer. I never did like competing with millions of others and much prefer a smaller pond. I had two opportunities for selling my books when I was in the UK looking after my mother. Through specific outlets, as part of my nutritional therapist work and by signing up for summer and Christmas fairs.
