Update on BIG E Sales

My Book -- BIG E and the SANTA MAN

In just over 24 hours since I made the last post, I’m already thrilled with the results. Email orders for 19 copies of BIG E and the SANTA MAN have come in.  Four people, including one in Canada and another in France,  wanted copies of both books.

I did have to check to see if they were OK with the additional postage for destinations outside the U.S.  Fortunately, this did not kill the orders.

I feel pretty stupid not mentioning the foreign country postage differentials in the original post.  My next project will be to go back and revise it with a $5 adder to Canada and $15 to Europe.

I hope the sales through Amazon are going equally well.  I won’t know until they send my end of the month report.

I heard from a reader on Comments.   She reminded me that I didn’t describe in a nutshell what the book was about and guessed that it was fiction.  It was a reminder to me that new readers have come to ElvisBlog in the past year who haven’t seen all the previous posts promoting the book.  I’ll bring them up to speed next post.

Thanks to everyone who is buying BIG E and the SANTA MAN.  I really appreciate the support.

Santa Thumbs UP

  1. Sir,
    Who can I contact to inquire if a long sleeve shirt I got back in 1974, in Los Angeles is authentic Elvis in one of his movies? I can send picture if needed. I’ve been searching for years to ask the right person.
    Please advise.
    Thank you.

    I ordered mine thru Amazon.

    • Hi Nancy: I think I thanked you with a private email about ten days ago. If not, thank you very much. The reviews on Amazon that count the most are the ones written by people who buy the book there. When you finish BIG E and the SANTA MAN, would you consider submitting a review of it?

      Thanks, Phil

    I intend to place an order through Pay Pal. At the bottom of the book cover is printed “author of Elvis Clause.” Is that another book you are selling?

    • Hi Teresa: Thank you for buying a copy of my book. Do you have an inscription you would like me to write along with my signature?

      Elvis Claus is written and it has gone through the same proofreading and editing as the BIG E books. It is also about Elvis carrying on after 1977 in secrecy. However, it is not a rock & roll fantasy, it is a love story. Some of my writer friends like it best of my books. However, I have been hesitant to publish it because it has actual people in it like Bernard Lansky, and at the very end when Elvis dies at 88, Lisa Marie comes to the funeral. I’m afraid to do anything that will get Graceland mad at me, so it may never get printed. But, it is true that I am the author of Elvis Claus like it says on the BIG E book cover.

      I am sending out PayPal invoices tomorrow, and will include one to you for $10. Do you have an inscription you’d like me to add along with my signature? I’m also going to send this reply to you by email, too.

      Thanks again, Phil Arnold
