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.

10/18/03 SAT:
---Word from Golden Gryphon:
“Greetings from the Gryphon:

THE ANGEL IN THE DARKNESS, by Kage Baker, is now available!

"Quiet desperation" just about sums up Maria Aguilar's life. She is
underpaid, overworked, and burdened with other people's
responsibilities. Then things take a turn for the worse.
An apparent ghost begins stalking her, leaving clues to a long-
buried mystery and hinting at the existence of an all-powerful, time-
traveling Company somehow involved with her family. Before she
learns the truth, Maria will need all her courage and strength . . . and
the help of the Angel in the Darkness.
The Angel in the Darkness is Kage Baker's newest tale (nearly
30,000 words and more than 75 pages) of the Company, that secret
cabal of scientists and investors who use time-traveling immortals to
help them reap the benefits of the past. But all is not well within the
Company, and this tale portends events to come in the growing
conflict among the immortals themselves.

500 copies only, each is numbered and signed by the author.

The Angel in the Darkness
by Kage Baker
Cover art by J. K. Potter and Jennifer Potter
No ISBN / $15.95 (Trade Softcover) 76 pages"

---I should be getting these in my standing order, but I better check to make sure.
