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.

03/08/05 TUE:
---Good to learn that it looks like we are now getting closer to having Horrible Imaginings show up here. Word that the books were shipped today has been received from Midnight House. Maybe they will be here by the end of the week. There should be plenty for everyone who is waiting for me to get them, plus a few extras for anyone who wants to jump on the bandwagon now, while there is still the chance. Discount is 20% from the publisher’s suggested retail of $45. When I actually catalogue it, I think I might have to list it as “as new” (10%) with the price modulated to perhaps attenuate the outflow a bit.
