"My work may be garbage but it's good garbage." Mickey Spillane
Blu Phi’er has found themselves a new patsy to shill for the company.
The chainstores that dominate book sales are very centralized. The distributor or the sales rep for the publishing house has to take their catalog and samples and pitch their books to the central buyer for their region.
If Mr. Bernoudy were doing offset or digital short runs, I can see sending a sales rep to speak with either the distributor or the central buyer. He is not.
His sales figures indicate that all of his books are PoD through Lightning Source. That is standard PoD.
Furthermore, the figures are bleak and confusing. There are categories there that should not be.
I intend to forward my copy of his sales report to a professional I know for analysis. As soon as I get the analysis back, I will post the findings on it.
