My book at the The Bostonian Society Gift Shop

Last month I released my 4th book 'Urban Sketching The Freedom Trail' via Amazon.

2 day later I received an email from the Director of Marketing of Revolutionary Boston - an organization part of The Bostonian Society, a 128 year old institution dedicated to studying and preserving Boston's history. They found my book online and was interested in selling them in their gift shops - I was thrilled!

I delivered a box of 36 copies last week as a test trial and went to go see how they were selling this memorial day weekend.

They have 4 gift shops located in The Old State House, Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market - All shops located right on the Freedom trail. A perfect location for my book.

Here are photos from my gift shop tour!

This was a very exciting day for me and I can't wait to hear how well it sells.
If this test sell turns out well, we talked about printing in larger volumes (which would bring the piece cost down) as well as printing on higher quality paper and possibly as a hard cover.
It would be an amazing experience to have my book printed and sold in large volumes!

For out of town people interested in this book, you can find it on Amazon:
