Three months ago we released the first Echoes From Catawba book called Volume 1 Growing up in Catawba Valley Appalachia. Each book that is published will have a “volume” number. The next book to be released later this year will be Volume 2, then Volume 3, etc.
We printed a limited number of the hardback books which are First Edition books for release three months ago for the book signing and sales following that up until now. These hardbacks are the Collectors Edition. All of the first edition printing of any worthwhile books are an investment due to it being a limited number and first printing. They will increase in value as the years go by. The Volume 1 book is available on Amazon but that book is the paperback version only. So what does this all mean to you?
If you purchased the hardback edition already, you are fine and have a first edition copy of Volume 1 and on track to build a valuable set. If you have not purchased a hardback copy yet, and you want to build a set then you may want to consider getting one now.
We held some Volume 1 books back to have for sale this year but they have continued to sell and our supply is slowly dwindling. I want you to be aware of this so you will have an opportunity to still get one.
Hardback books can be purchased in three ways: www.echoesfromcatawba.com website, The Emporium in New Castle, or the Salem Museum in Salem.
