After quite a while resting on my more or less laurels (past listings) it's time to get a move on and put up some more listings. My goal is five books every day from now on. This should be achievable, but not according to my past performance.

These books get listed in three places: on Amazon, Biblio, and Half. Books without ISBNs (older books) generally will not be listed on half. My prices might vary between these three places. Amazon and Half tell me competing prices, so I peg mine on them. Thus, if the lowest price for Deadly Percheron is $98 on Amazon, I might peg mine at $95. If it weren't my only copy maybe I'd be more reasonable. In fact, I think my Biblio listing is more reasonable.

Going forward (and possibly backward), links to titles of books will send you to the main Amazon listing. My listing will be somewhere amidst the other maybe 237 listings. This is where my photo of the book can be seen, which will probably be a better one than the one Amazon features. Half doesn't let me attach my own photo—at least I don't think it does. Photos are also at biblio. Lots of older listings still don't have photos. Nor updated prices.

I've been lousy at selling direct via email. Sorry about that, if you've tried me. Listing through the major portals keeps me honest—also prompt and reliable.

08/11/03 MON:
---This weblog should be the place, even if all other evidences fail, where if someone is interested, they can find out if I am still alive. But lately even this has not been the case. I have fallen way behind in getting these posts put up. I won’t recite what excuses I might or might not have. Some of the reasons might become implicit in the content of intervening entries. Suffice it to say that I want to get caught up so I can keep these posts more contemporaneous. Instead of try to play catch-up by putting up the oldest entries and trying to work my way to the present, I will set up blank entries for the missing days, to be filled in as time and volition allow. I hope I can henceforth put up more recent entries on a more current-time basis. That way things will be in their proper order when they do appear, and I can still write things like this here and have them apply to the day they were posted.
