Supply and Demand

It will be a frustrating two weeks (or more) until we have the next batch of copies of The Bumper Book of Black Isle Snappery in our hands. Telling eager customers that we've nothing to give them is no fun.

Our largest stockist has sold out, there's just a handful of copies left between the others and now that news of the book has appeared on the Inverness Courier website we expect even more interest. It's a good problem to have.

The Courier story prompted an inquiry from Waterstone's in Inverness, which is confident it can sell oodles of copies (on a sale or return basis, of course). The profit it would make on the deal could go a long way to help Tim Waterstone buy back his old firm, so we'd be supporting the last high street book chain against the evil online booksellers. Most laudable.

An unexpected extension to our media blitz is on the horizon thanks to Marten James' contacts on the Scottish Daily Mail, which in the past has featured some of his dolphin snaps. There's talk of a two-page spread of our handywork to highlight the hidden gem that is the Black Isle.

If that happens, and the Mail scribblers remember to include my website address, things might get really busy.
