... for residents of central MD. The Trail House, 17 S. Market Street, Frederick, MD now carries the book. I have been invited to do a book signing but I'm waiting until after my hip surgery (09/03) to lock in on a date. It will be on a Saturday.

Excellent! I'll try to remember that the next time I'm out near Fredneck and headed for WV.

Any progress in actually getting the book on the shelves in WV?  I know it should really sell well down here near the Mon.

Got a friend working on 2 Mom and Pop stores, one in Morgantown and one in Pittsburgh. Blackwater SP turned it down. Got no where with the 2 Mon visitor centers. It is at Water Stone Outdoors in Fayetteville. Can you recommend any places?

Oh, I'm also working on Gator Mt. They have a store in Charleston.

One store I can think of would be Mainline Books in Elkins.  

http://www.mainlinebooks.com/

I'll keep a eye around, as I think of more places.

There's got to be some way in getting them into the FS centers.  They would fit right in, as they have the mon forest trail guides and all right there at Cranberry, and seneca rocks.  Maybe a face to face visit to the visitor centers, or a stop by the main office in Elkins might be in order sometime you get down this way....  You know how the fed gov is...

I hope to have a Hiker friend (one of the ladies in the Cranberry backpack I talked about.) visit that visitor center and an outfitter in Marlinton and give them samples. Giving away a lot of free samples is not very cost effective but I guess it's the cost of doing business.

Yeah, you gotta do what you have to.  Having your book on the shelves in those two FS visitor centers is where they need to be right in the heart of the forest.  

People drive in, stop see the book and think, wow, i need this to find some trails and hikes!  I know it would fit right in with the trail guide, maps, and other hiking books.  Damn shame the state parks won't listen to you, it would probably go well at Cass too.  State of WV is a PITA to work with :(

I E-mailed these folks but haven't heard back from them. Could you show them your copy and give them my contact info?

Cranberry Nature Center is placing an order. Waiting to hear from Seneca Rocks.

Have you tried the Mountain Made Gallery in Thomas, WV?  www.mountainmade.com/    They have lots of artisan stuff but also sell books.  They are on Facebook also.
