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.

---This email from Night Shade came in:
Hey all,

We are putting in our final order for the Dunsany slipcases, so we need all final orders by Friday, November 10th. Subscribers are covered under their subscription. Anyone else who wants them, they will be $20 per slipcase. You can order the slipcase via the link on the homepage of the website.

At the same time, we'll finally be getting the slipcases for the Manly Wade Wellman Giants from Eternity/Strangers on the Heights limited edition. It looks like we'll have color inserts on both sides, so this is going to be worth the wait.

We've seen the samples, and these will be by far the nicest slipcases we've ever done.

Remember, get your order in by Friday, as we're only doing as many as we have orders for.

---Don’t know if there is any trade discount on this, so to play it safe maybe anyone wanting this should get it direct from Night Shade--unless you want me to put in for one and possibly have to tack on a bit of a premium. Since the deadline is tomorrow, I recommend haste. Also, I do have an order in for Night Shade books. These will be here eventually, I’m sure.
