So, the second proof came. I looked at it only long enough to verify that it contained the right innards and then I ordered my review copies. They have to go out next week or the beginning of the week after at the latest. So, mistakes. There may be some. But it’s too late to fret about that crap.
So, yes, hypothetically, you could order the book right now if you wanted to. You’ll probably soon see it up at Amazon, for instance. But I’m hoping you wait until next week, when I’ll give you a link to order it directly from the printer and a coupon code to get 15% off. If, for some reason, Amazon wants to give you a better discount than that, you should go for it. But I don’t know if they will. Probably not.
We’ll also be getting the Kindle version up in the next little bit. I’ll let you know when that happens.
But things are slowly trickling out in preparation for the October launch. So, yes, we’ll still have a story a night here in October. They’ll be rough drafts of the stories in the book (or half of them. The other half were first published here last year.) But please, feel free to buy the book as early as it’s available (which should be next week).
I just have three requests.
1. If you like it, tell someone. I don’t have any marketing money, so I’m depending on your word of mouth.
2. If you don’t like it, please, give your copy to someone, even if it’s only so that the two of you can complain together about how terrible it is. Loudly, and in public. Please, if you hate it, complain loudly in public about it and call it evil. That’s all I’m asking. You don’t have to like it, but if you hate it, please publicly call it evil. Say that it glorifies Satan or something.
3. My goal is to sell 333 copies. If you are a church group looking to burn my book because it is evil and glorifies Satan, if you are willing to hold up my book in front of television cameras and denounce it, I will give you a 50% discount on bulk purchases of my book to burn. It’s worth it to me to meet my sales goal.
Okay, that’s everything. Whew, this is really happening. I’m making time this weekend to address envelopes for press releases.
