Subject: Posting All Three Books in a Series?

I have a complete 3-book Christian fiction series ("The Heritage of Lancaster County" by Beverly Lewis) that I'd like to post as a complete set, and the first book in the series is signed by the author on the flyleaf.  Does anyone know how I would go about doing that?  I've never done this before, and especially not with a signed copy.  I looked all over the Book Bazaar and couldn't find an area for posting a complete series without offering it at a credit discount.

Thanks in advance for your help!

You're free to offer the series without a discount in the book bazaar. Just start your own topic and see if you get a bite. I see This one on the first page:

LAURIEN BERENSON Collection! 15 PB to 1 person 15 crs!

Just as an example of what you'd like to post. No deal offered on that one, just the whole lot up for grabs.

There's a Christian Book Recommendation forum, you could try posting in the Is This On Your Wishlist thread.

Thanks for the help!  I'll try those suggestions -- can I post in both places or do I have to choose only one?  And how do people post links to the books on the forums?

You can post in multiple threads, but when the books are taken it's polite to edit your posts so people will know they are no longer available.

Here's directions for posting a link in discussion threads.  Recently members have been posting the bookcover with the information, but I'm not sure how those are done.

Since I hang out on the forums a lot, I usually just post that kind of thing in my signature. I had 2 seperate posts this week: 1 offering 3 borderline postable WL books for 2 credtis and one listing a WL book that had a publishing flaw in my signature. I got requests for them both in just a couple of days.

You could also add them to the Book Bazaar thread entitled something like "multiple books, same author."  It's usually in the first few pages.

Thanks so much for the advice, everyone!  I posted the series and it was snapped up in less than 24 hours!  Woot!
