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.

---Have been listing quite of few $1 paperbacks on half.com. The competing price from other sellers for most of them is 75¢, but buying any individually for that price would probably add two or three dollars in postage--apparently how these sellers make their money. You can buy these from me through Half, or from me direct, with probably less in postage costs. I can download an “Inventory Snapshot” and forward it, if desired. Also, these books--and others I couldn’t list because they don’t have ISBNs or the ISBNs they have are not in the half.com database--can be seen in the Covershots 7 folder on my Covershots DVD-R or individually on CD-R, also by request. Eventually I hope to have them catalogued in my normal fashion, but for now there are still other books I need to deal with first.
