For years I’ve been toying with the idea of selling paperbacks directly to readers who want a signed book, but the logistics were daunting. With many readers living abroad and unable to travel to signings, I didn’t want to leave them out and do a US-only store. But calculating various shipping costs and trying to decipher international tax laws was a challenge.
Then I discovered there were e-commerce tools already built to help with a lot of that. Please bear with me as I work out the bugs and hiccups I’m sure are about to occur.
Rather than bog down my main website with a store, I created a new site just in case I ended up breaking it. If you’ll notice, this web address is store.posyroberts.com. It’s a subdomain of my main site. The menu option Author Website will take you back to my main site.
I’ll be selling signed paperbacks and bookplates directly. I’m also adding my e-books, which I sell on PayHip, and book swag and other stuff I love available on other sites such as Amazon or Zazzle. The buy buttons to an exterior site will be clearly marked.
