I found 9 or so brand new paranormal romance books. When I checked to see how many are in the system, most had oodles! Does this mean that they move or that they stay on one's shelf for quite awhile? If they are slow movers, I'll take them to the FOL store where I volunteer because they seem to fly from the shelves there! People are always asking for them, but they are shelved with all the romances, so they have to know the authors. Any ideas?    Thanks

I imagine it varies with the author and/or series.  Which authors did you find?

I find they go pretty quickly for the most part. Some of them have a lot of copies (like older Christine Feehan).  You have them now, see what happens.  If you get tired of looking at them you can always run a deal on them.  I don't usually let how heavily a book is posted discourage me.  People frequently add them to an order when I post WL books.  And some of those books are heavily posted because they're popular and they have a high rate of turn over.

Thank you for your advice. I think I WILL try listing before I take then to the FOL store.. Hopefully they will turn over fast!  Blessings M'ann

I've noticed that popular paranormal books become available and then when the author has a new book out, become WL again.  Still, I suspect if the books are heavily posted, you're not likely to get rid of them quickly.
