>They Look So…Book-y

10 Dec

>You know I don’t even have a word count? But the lulu.com paperback runs to 314 pages total and they look like this:Click to embiggenateCost to my door was on the near order of $14 per each; pretty as they are (and they’re very nice), by the time I make a buck (or, heheheh, two) and send ship them on to you-the-customer, the total is pushin’ twenny for a paperback. Ka-Blam can cut that about in half, which is what I’d prefer. Plus it is easier to do my own cover art with them, at least for a given value of “easy.”

The cats restored perspective: Huck decided to become Cat In The Box using the box the books were shipped in and Random Numbers approved. She may be estimating postage to Patagonia, though:Very blurry, it was almost dark in the room. Huck had his high beams on but Rannie was dimmed way down.

    >OMG. Lemme get the most egregious misspellings out, at least. The lulu version, I can splat right over to Amazon. And I likely will, as soon as the Prue.Freading is done.

    >We have liftoff!! But if we go Amazon, how do we get an autographed copy (which is what we all want.)

    >Cat-in-the-box! My cat just eats boxes. She prefers to be kitty-in-the-rug. (Rannie can probably quote the "If it fits, it ships" commercials verbatim.) Also I'm totally stealing Prue Freading as a character name. She's a crotchety old lady who used to be a librarian, and now spends her time correcting misspelled public signs with an off-brand sharpie marker.

    >Is it on sale yet?I won't pay more than a dollar three ninety eight.Didn't take long for the new stud to take over command.

    >Autographed copy? Your first book, and a first edition?I will happily pay your price and shipping. E-mail me an address to send a check, or a paypal address if you still trade with those thieves.

    >Joanna: FWIW, her middle name is "Dot." Probably short for Dorothy. …You know, I don't think we're on Kansas II any more…

    >She may be estimating postage to PatagoniaRemember the old Far Side (or maybe it was Herman… seems NOT to be on the web): "How far can I ship this cat for ten dollars?"?And yes, put me down for a book, too.
