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.

12/22/03 MON:
---New book from Ash-Tree here today: THE CASEBOOK OF MILES PENNOVER: Volume One by Margery Lawrence. Listing to follow. I guess my re-order for a bunch of Ash-Tree titles I had run out of reached them too late to come with this; or else they never got my re-order--a possibility because I usually get an email reply but have not received one this time.
---As usual for when I travel for a couple days or more I am having trouble triaging what most needs to be done and I end up sitting around reading my pile of new-reading (Sunday NY TIMES from yesterday as well as Saturday's, fat Winter Fiction issue of THE NEW YORKER, newsmagazine THE WEEK, and a new UTNE READER just today, for example.)
