Tanya
kind, curious, silly and shy
sister of two brothers, much older than I
loves music, dancing, nature and Labradors
who hopes optimisically, ponders reflectively and hordes sentimentality
who fears not being remembered, man's moral decay and this progressive disease
who would like to see all the wonders of the world, peace among nations and honesty in all human faces
resident of life's flowing waters

Chapbook ?s


Blog Posted:12/3/2012 12:49:00 PM
Dear Soupers,
     I have a few questions for any of you who are published or self-published.  I have made my own little chapbook.  Nothing fancy, just cardstock cover and sewn together with waxed irish linen cord. Would that be acceptable to sell here at PS?  I know chapbooks don't really need ISBN#'s, but would it be a good idea.  I doubt that I will ever sell alot--I have no visions of being famous.  Although I'd like to put it out in as many places as I can.  I'm just not sure because it is not professionally done.  Any advice would be appreciated.
Thanks.....:) Tanya

    Tanya, I had eight published at Shadowpoetry.com and they were very nicely done. The bookstore there was lovely, and yet the owner of the website told me that a poet was lucky if two copies a year of their book got sold. Only if you had friends going there to buy them, which I had a few of, would you even sell any at all. That's the reality of it. I ended up doing lots of book exchanges with folks and a few wonderful people here bought a few of my books before the site closed down. If you care to do an exchange, let me know. I still have extras at my house that I can exchange with other poets. Luv, Andrea

    Thanks. I figure I'll just put them around my little town (about 1,000 pop.) and see how that goes. We have a little 'museum' that has a section for local authors. I'll put a few there.
