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.

---Word from Small Beer:
Hi there,

I'm just mailing out our latest chapbook (dated 10/04), Theodora Goss's THE
ROSE IN TWELVE PETALS AND OTHER STORIES which has cover art by Charles Vess.
$6, 60pp.

If we have a standing order of from you, I'll mail it out tomorrow unless
you ask for more. Interest in this chapbook has been pretty high (maybe the
Vess cover?) and since we will be out of the country from 9/8-10/8 I thought
it might be smart to ask if you need this -- or any of our other books,
chapbooks, or LCRW.

We're about to go to Worldcon so we're out of the hardcovers of our new
books, PERFECT CIRCLE and TRASH SEX MAGIC. Might reprint them later. Do tell
if there's interest on your side.

So, chapbooks? LCRW? And in November, CARMEN DOG!

Thanks again,
