Trying to get some local bookshop here to place an order of the books may be a bit harder I guess. So far I'm aiming at some very specific stores: a fantasy/sf/horror shop, a gay shop, a feminist/lesbian shop, and a bookstore chain based locally. So far I've only emailed them asking who I might send a press release to (it's important to send to the right person, which would be the buyer) and so far, been shot down once. That was Chapter 11 (the local chain) who wrote me saying "We've carried some Storm Constantine before, didn't do well, good luck." Oh, well, I'll keep trying, huh! Then the biggest thing is, I want Amazon.com to list it, but so far they haven't. And try twisting their arm!
Sometimes I wish the book wasn't an import and therefore less likely to get picked up and bought in the U.S., but hey, I know it's going to be beautiful and anyway you can buy it online from across the pond, so hey, better than nothing.
