This afternoon I made myself a cartoonchurch eBay account so that I can start to think about selling these canvasses. However, I decided to start off with something a bit smaller and more manageable, so I’m now selling some signed copies of my books. My brand new shiny eBay account is here: cartoonchurch (0).
Now, I don’t really intend to make a long term thing of selling my books on eBay, as (a) I’d like to support local bookshops and (b) I’m too lazy to keep going to the post office. However, I do have a reasonable amount of stock that I need to shift, so I may well add some more if it works and people buy them.
I’d wanted to sell the books with a ‘buy it now’, but apparently I need to have more of a feedback score than my current ‘0’ before I’m allowed to be let loose on the ‘buy it now’ button. So the books are being sold as an auction, starting at 99p and hopefully ending up not too far from the £5.99 mark.
I might add more books, so please don’t bid huge amounts (not that you were planning to, I know) for a rare signed copy, because If I sell more they will become rather less rare. I will sign them saying anything you want (within reason) – so an ideal opportunity to pick up a unique(ish) Christmas present.
As an aside: I do have a personal eBay account, so the whole business is not entirely new to me. But my score on my personal account is (2) meaning that I am still really a novice. I’ll write about the not-terribly-but-a-little-bit-exciting story of my (2) purchases another day.
Update (Saturday midday): Have added another 5 ‘Dave Walker Guide to the Church’ books. These are a 3 day listing again, so will end midday on Tuesday if my calculations are correct.
