Did you know there’s an insider’s secret to book buying?
Help me out – and yourself in the long run, folks. Mark the date April 24th down. Ten days and counting.
Please buy the 2007 edition of Mysterious America: The Ultimate Guide to the Nation’s Weirdest Wonders, Strangest Spots, and Creepiest Creatures on April 24th!
If you have been thinking about purchasing the new edition of Mysterious America, how about picking April 23-April 24 to place your orders?
Here’s the insider’s secret: A concentrated buying spree on one date – in this case, the release date, April 24th – goes far in assisting book stores, libraries, and online booksellers to see here is a book with general and widespread interest, indeed, a book which they should choose to order and stock.
Insider’s secret #2: Causing, through your purchases on that specific day, this popular, classic book to zoom to the top of the bestsellers lists’ for even one week also would help other authors of Fortean and cryptozoology books to convince future publishers and book merchants that these kinds of nonfiction works are wanted and bought by the public. In the end, you, the readers win because a greater diversity of books and authors are produced in the same genre, cryptozoology and forteana.
So, please, do your part and buy a year’s worth of book gifts for friends and family, purchase one for your local library, and get your own personal copy of Mysterious America on April 24th!
Of course, if you think you’ll be busy on the 24th, just put in an order today. That will help too, in terms of the build-up to that magic date. More on why April 24th is special in a future posting during the next ten days.
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.
