THIEF! is enjoying some amazing book sales. Consider the following:
McCarran Airport Borders Books in Las Vegas reports that
- THIEF! sales have outperformed all other books except Secrets last week
- THIEF! is No. 1 in sales for true crime books in the store last week
- Sixty % of THIEF! buyers are women
- Slick sold about 27 copies during his regular Sunday gig at Borders, McCarran (Average booksigning sales are 10 copies)
- Borders manager, Anna Chapman, says THIEF! sells about 5-10 books when Slick isn't there, far above average for an unknown author
- Borders at McCarran ordered 40 books today to accommodate anticipated sales
- Brisk hard cover THIEF! sales defy the normal shopping trend to purchase only paperback books at airport locations which are less bulky to carry
And in that second hotbed of THIEF! activity, Cherie sold out Books-A-Million, Fort Myers, FL inventory of 20 books in under 2 hours last Saturday.
Needless-to-say, both Slick and I are invited to return to these bookstores as often as possible.
