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.

06/23/04 WED:
---With the Stark House book that arrived a couple days ago, I notice a brochure listing the Aphelion Publications from Australia they also distribute. I think I already have most of the titles in stock, but I notice an anthology edited by Peter McNamara--WONDER YEARS: Ten Best--I should add to my order file. They also distribute for Beacon Books (Mystery/Sherlock Holmes/Historical Mysteries) from Australia and Dimsdale Press (Lesbian/SF) with one title: WORLD CELAENO CHOSE by Jane Fletcher (“Set in a world without men--where Church rules the State--this is the story of young DNA imprinter Lynn, who meets the worldly and courageous Kim as she escorts her through the mountains to Landfall, the holiest of the Temple sites. But as the two women grow closer, they know they are putting themselves in grave danger.”)
