Book sales top 1,000

The Glade Press today is pleased to announce that more than 1,000 copies of Joseph Gatins’ first book, We Were Dancing on a Volcano, have sold since its launch a year ago.

The intriguing family biography and non-fiction narrative, subtitled Bloodlines and Fault Lines of a Star-Crossed Atlanta Family, 1849-1989, has been well received in the book and reader community that arcs from Atlanta to Richmond, with important stops in Athens,  Asheville and Highlands, a press spokesman said.
Said Gatins:  “I’m really gratified to see that readers are warming to this narrative, which represents my first foray into the brave world of self-publication.  It’s much like the old Johnny Cash song, “One Piece at a Time,” but eventually the solo sales begin to add up.”

“The Glade Press has been tireless in promoting the work, as has Esther Levine of Book Atlanta,” said the author, who has conducted more than 32 book talks, signings and media interviews since initial publication.  “I’m really grateful for all the marketing help and advice that they, and others, have provided.

The book is available both in soft-cover at the usual digital outlets and many independent-minded bookstores in Georgia and Western North Carolina, and as an e-book (on iPad, Nook and Kindle readers).  Look for it soon as an audio book.
