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 Ash-Tree

Email from Ash-Tree:
Reggie Oliver's book will be ready for shipping next week. Indications are that this will be a popular title, and if you have not already considered increasing your normal order, we feel that you may like to do so: we feel sure that there will be a strong demand for the new collection from this increasingly popular author.
Please let us know if you have any problems with the attached file.
all best,
Christopher & Barbara
---As always, I can forward the PDF if you would like. It mentions a podcast by Reggie Oliver of him reading one of the stories. I think the URL in the PDF is wrong. I tracked it down to
