My big news this month is that NETTLEFLOWER, our historical novel, is now available in a real hold-in-the-hand book! I haven't got my paws on a copy yet, though, as it's not yet available anywhere but from JJ> However, my local indie bookshop is trying to get copies for the launch in January (There are advantages to working in the local library!) but on the other hand the big chains have never heard of JJ and although interested, have to use their own suppliers.
It's very frustrating.
So here a question -- is there anyone out there (not writing erotica) who has had the same problems getting their books into stores?
And how do I get around it?
