Today was my first day as a Real Boy on the sales floor, and I did pretty damn well for myself, I think– just under $5000 in sales. I spent all day joshing back and forth with our sales leader that I was aiming at him, and I thought I had caught him with what would have been the store’s last sale of the day, only to find out that the customer had talked with him about what she bought on a previous visit and there was a quote in the system already. From the guy I was chasing, meaning that he beat me by whatever amount he was ahead plus the stuff I just sold. If it had been my sale, I’d have caught him.
On the plus side, I came home to birthday steak and birthday baked potatoes and birthday cherry pie, so all is right in the world.
Speaking of my birthday: my birthday sale starts tomorrow! Beginning late tonight, Searching for Malumba will be free for the next five days. In addition, The Sanctum of the Sphere and Skylights will be $2.99, on sale from their usual $4.95 price point. The Benevolence Archives, Vol. 1 remains $.99 at Amazon, although you can get it for free from Smashwords if you like. The sale prices will be good for a week, and there will be a post up in the morning to remind you. Sale! Buy buy buy!
Or, y’know, give me a birthday present and buy them in paperback at full price. That works too. 🙂
