THE BOOK TRAILER
I built "The Book Trailer" from a utility trailer and I use it to craft my books. The top sides with murals lift up and the bottom sides fold down to use as tables. If you see this unique trailer, you will know I am around someplace. My books are always in it, and I'm always ready to talk about them, the trailer or sell a book. Look me up and say hi!
I sell at craft shows, farmer's markets and just about anywhere I can. I will deliver a book anytime I'm in the vicinity. You can text me or email me, but I DO NOT ANSWER MY PHONE WHEN I'M DRIVING.
It is cheaper to buy a book from the book trailer. You don't have to pay postage and I will autograph it for you. On the page for each book, the formats available are listed, along with the prices. You might wonder why the price varies for each book.
I home publish some of my books, and I have the remaining printed through Amazon. When the book is set up, there is a minimum price I can charge. This depends on whether the book contains color, the market I open the book to and a few other things. Authors get a discount when buying the books for resale, so that is why sometime The Book Trailer Price is less than the price on Amazon. Of course, the price I pay for postage and handling as well as taxes must be thrown into the equation. When I sell an autographed book online, I am paying shipping twice. All these things go into the calculation of each price.
Many people are interested in how I built my trailer. I painted the murals and did all the lettering. Here are a few pictures at different stages. It took a lot of time and money that my books will never return, but I enjoyed building it and I certainly enjoy using it.
