[quote=""Misfit""]Do they participate in interlibrary loan? Ask them. I've received books from all over the US at no charge, and there were enough listings of Buchannan's book that your chances are good. I just looked at B&N and only see the paperback issue of the book listed, so hang tight. I'm guessing she's on the Amazon program with that too and we might see it eventually. I can wait...[/quote]

I will check on that. I can get any library books within the whole state by checking online, so i will ask when I go in next time to widen the scope. Meanwhile, I can can dip into TBR mountain....

We never lack for books to read. Ever. The interlibrary program is nation wide, but I'm not sure how it works for your local libraries. I'm in the greater Seattle area, and I've received books from Alaska, New Hampshire, Oklahoma, a New Mexico University and even a Benedictine Abbey. Even from very very small towns on the Oregon coast, so it is done nationwide.

Ohhh thanks. I've been wanting to try the first one but my library doesn't have it. So I can try this one for free and always purchase the first one if I'm so inclined.

No worries here, but would love to hear more about KDP after you've had your first run. Three months, is it? A win for readers, but what about the author experience.
