My new book The Heights came out today and since I was in the area, I stopped by the nearest Barnes & Nobel to make sure they had it.
At first I didn't find it and was ready to walk out grumbling to myself. I was on my way out and thought "This is crazy, how could they not have it."
So I checked again, sure enough it was there on the New Release shelf, but on the bottom shelf in the corner where it could easily be missed. I put Operation Stealth into effect, switching my book with some useless looking fantasy title.
Ahhhhh...front and center. Nice.
Lest you think I'm narcisistic, let me assure that I'm a habitual shifter of displays for any product I like. I'm the king of that in record stores and book stores. A little gonzo marketing on my part.
