    But in the meantime, if you would like to put your name on the list for an autographed copy, please drop me an email with your name & mailing address. As soon as I know what the total will be, I'll send info about how to pay for it.

    Email to my username @ corneredcat.com with your name & mailing address.

    Thanks,

    Hitch King,

    Not yet, but I'll ask the publisher about that.

    Thanks again for the kind words, everyone. I just got back from the post office and it looks like my shipping cost will be $3.25 per book. Base cost of the book is $16, so $19.25 total for a signed copy. Didn't intend to do direct sales myself, and Amazon is certainly cheaper for the readers, but I don't have any way to sign their copies, so ...

    The nice thing is that I have books in stock right now & they don't. Not sure what's going on with that. Maybe it's good news for me?

    Edited to add one more embarrassed apology, this one to the moderators & admins here: I truly didn't intend to turn this into a sale thread, simply an announcement. If it needs to be moved or closed, I'll take my lumps with a smile. Thanks.

    Regarding post #23 - You're OK on that pax. No problem.
    It's very obvious that you did not start out trying to sell books.

    Our members like pictures. Nice Cover.

    Does it have pictures? I'll write a review just from reading the cover! A lot of Amazon reviews are like that.

    Seriously, it's great that you wrote a book. I could write a review from your writings on DC.com. It would be a really good review. I am adding a copy to my cart, today.

    I hope your book sells good. If someone has agreed to publish it They must have liked what they read. Don't be embarrassed,your book could be a real seller.
