  •  welcome back (6+ / 0-)

    By the way, my little book is almost sold out.

    New printing to come, I hope.

    •  I'm on the fence, undecided, on whether (4+ / 0-)

      to buy a copy of your book.

      If you write a reply to this comment,
      telling me how many copies you still have for sale,
      I might,
      right when I read that reply,
      send you a check for $5,
      right then.

      I just don't want to send you a check,
      and then you're out,
      and then you have to send the check back.....

      I normally buy books through Amazon,
      often used.

      But if I buy one of your books,
      used,
      no more money gets to you at that time.

      And it may be awhile before any copies turn up at used book stores.

      We'll see how it works out here in the comment thread.

        as so far only 50 have been printed. My publisher, Andrew Topel, operates Avantacular Press out of his home. He prints out the pages then binds them at the kitchen table. Or maybe at his desk?

        Right now I have 3 copies and they're spoken for. But I should have another 50 any day ...

        You can order direct from Avantacular, too.

        Thanks for considering a purchase.
        :-)

          which might be expensive to print just one copy,
          with the expense of the printed photographs on every large page,
          as long as a book is not like that,
          maybe you and your publisher are onto something,
          as they say.

          Maybe if more and more books are published and printed like that,
          folks can break into publishing easier,
          both as writers and as publishers.

          Small batches of fifty at a time,
          makes sense to me.

          Send me a private message,
          if you like,
          when you get your next batch in.

          And,
          if it's practical to do so,
          could you direct your publisher to my voluminous writings here at Daily Kos,
          so he can read some of my work,
          and see if he wants a certain type of collection,
          so I could do what you're doing?

          I have slice of life diaries,
          fairly popular,
          and overpopulation alarm diaries,
          not as popular.

          I'm supposing he wouldn't want already published diaries,
          but I can write whatever he thinks might sell,
          more original work,
          anytime.

          My only problem is,
          I'd really want to slip in the overpopulation alarm material,
          trying to rescue the world,
          trying to rescue civilization in general,
          trying to save lives.

          But I struggle to write about that
          in such a way that strikes a chord in readers,
          so to speak.

          Anyway.

          Tell me what you can, about me getting in print.

          Thanks in advance.
