I’ve had two offers to publish my book “The Swirl in my Burl: Essays”. One is from a Canadian publisher and one is in New York. The deals they are offering are essentially the same. I am trying to figure out if a U.S. publisher will likely sell more copies than a Canadian one. If anyone has any experience in this, please let me know. Certainly it’s a nice dilemma to have but I need to resolve it quickly.
