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.

03/02/04 TUE:
---Have fallen behind a few days keeping up with this blog, even minimally. I just augmented the entry for 02/16/04. Otherwise, I will see what I can do to put more up here; but I am realizing that I have quite a few orders and unanswered emails that I need to apply myself toward.

---I have noticed that these entries don't always show up in the order I post them, if I put them up in quick succession. Hopefully they are close enough. I try to have at least a marker post for every day, so I can go back later and put things in where they belong. I don't believe the published blog has a Find function, but my Manage Posts window has a pretty good one. I suppose I could perform searches and email the results to anyone who wants to find any past listings they might be interested in seeing.
