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 Overlook Connection:
Overlook Connection Press New Title Annoucements
Jack Ketchum Shipping - New Lucy Taylor Due in October
Lucy Taylor's new collection release "The Silence Between The
Screams" is being released in a trade hardcover. And in an unusual
move, is also being released in a signed limited, with a different
twist. The limited edition, only available through specialty
bookstores (those of you receiving this e-mail), and is being
released with original cover art and a different title! The limited
release will also feature original art for each story by Glenn
"The Silence Between The Screams" will be available to all bookstore
and library outlets. Again, the signed limited will only be
available from specialty bookstores and the OCP. Publisher Dave
Hinchberger said "the limited edition title, 'A Hairy Chest, A Big
Dick, and A Harley' was the original title idea. However, we felt
that due to the title's strong wording, it might only reach a
limited market. With that in mind I felt why not 'give' the limited
market it's original title, and with the mainstream title 'A Silence
Between the Screams' the book could still find the wider audience
this collection deserves."
More information and title art can be seen in the rest of this press
The Silence Between The Screams by Lucy Taylor
"The Silence Between The Screams" is Lucy Taylor's long awaited new

"A Hairy Chest, A Big Dick, and A Harley" is the limited edition

both editions. This signed limited edition with original art
produced just for the limited is also by Rick Sardhina. This limited
and signed edition will only be available through specialty book
shops, and will not feature an ISBN number. Also there will not be a
UPC code on the back of the book to keep the cover art design intact
that usually detracts from these unique editions. The text for both
titles will remain the same. However the limited edition will
feature the trade edition cover art as a frontispiece in the limited
so the collector will have both.

Jack Ketchum's Off Season - Available In Trade Paperback
When Off Season, a novel of horror and cannibalism in modern day
Maine, was first released in 1980, it took readers by storm and sold
over 250,000 copies! However, the original edition was edited and
content was removed from the story at the publisher's request. The
whole effect of the book was deemed to intense, in particular the
ending-which is completely restored in this edition. The Overlook
Connection Press is releasing this edition in it's original
unexpurgated state for the first time in trade paperback. The
author's original vision can now be read. This book has not been
available in the US for almost two decades. We have a special
introduction by Douglas E. Winter, who has championed this novel for
years. Also an Afterword by the author Jack Ketchum. Original cover
art by Neal McPheeters.
= Price 22.95
