Sea Turtle found in the Amazon.com

Eartha on AmazonOnly days after my book was finalized, it has appeared on Amazon.com! I have to admit, that was pretty fast. I haven’t even finished the shopping cart for my web site yet. I sent Amazon.com some page samples so they can add the “See Inside” option to the book. It seems to sell more books when people can see the inside, especially picture books.

The list price for the book is $12.99. It was suggested to me that the book should be priced $17.99, but I though that to be too expensive for a picture book. On my web site, I’ll be selling the book for $9.99, and $12.99 for a signed copy.  Shipping is about $2.77 via media mail.

As I promised there will be a special package deal on my site called Paulie’s Special. (Paulie is Eartha’s parrotfish friend). The Special includes a signed copy of the book, a Loggerhead Sea Turtle Fact bookmark, Four color postcards of the real Eartha, and an 8 x 10 photograph of Eartha. The deal will sell for $19.99, and $2.00 from every sale will go to the Loggerhead Marinelife Center where Eartha was cared for.

Paulie's special deal

After just over one year, its finally happening. I cannot tell you how excited I am. Some of my family, and a few friends, have already seen and read the book and have given it high praise. My first step, once I receive the books, is to send a few copies to the Loggerhead Marinelife Center to keep in their gift shop. Then, the marketing begins…
