Silly Things Make Me Happy
A few weeks back, I received a message saying that someone saw my first novel listed at the local library. I totally forgot to go look it up, until yesterday.
You see, I logged onto one of my sites to see a copy of book 1 purchased. This triggered the memory, and I went onto the library website to see that it indeed was being picked up by them. It is not available to be lent out just yet, but should be soon. This had me wondering so I looked up the other three, and low and behold, there they were. Each of the four libraries is going to be carrying one of the novels.
I freaked out. It is awesome to have libraries, especially local ones, carry your work. I know one in Edmonton has them, but was not aware the local library was bringing them in. Had I known, I would have donated a set to them.
Some people asked me why I didn't just go to them, and request they be brought in. Well, that just isn't me. What I did do was ask anyone who used the library to put in a request. Guess they did! I know they are print copies, and am not certain if they are going to carry the eBook versions. I do have them listed as free for libraries, but have no idea if that is only in the USA, or if it's all over.
I have put out there four copies of book 1 in those little libraries. There are tons scattered around here, so I felt it was the least I could do. I can't do much, but try and do little things for my city.
So again, I wish to say Thank You to the Thunder Bay Public Library. I am overjoyed for this.
