I want to be able to sell books at special events not hosted by a bookstore. Usually an author can buy discounted copies from the publisher but can not resell them. Buying them online at an Internet bookstore and reselling them is not legal, either. However, my publisher has been very cooperative and will allow me to purchase discounted books under my Catnip Productions business name. Now I have to investigate getting a resale license so I can pay the appropriate sales tax. One thing about the publishing business....there’s always something new to learn about.
My publicist at Berkley Books informed me that she had a request for two books from the producer of the National Public Radio show “Tell Me More” for a possible on-air interview with me. Is this exciting or what!
