The more you do, the more you don't know!

Soon we will have to decide on the size of the initial print run for the book. So, ellenmillion  says to me, You're taking books to conventions to sell and sign and offer to book sellers to take out into the wild, and time permitting, you're going to try to set up readings in friendly local bookstores and maybe libraries . . . so, how many books do you need?

And I'm stumped! I really don't know what to expect.  So I thought I'd ask you for help.

I'm not trying to talk anyone out of preordering on the site.  If you want to download the PDF version right now, while you get it free with the hard copy, that's the way to go.

And I'm not into a hard sell--I hope you'll all look at the book, because I believe in it, and because I enjoy sharing things with my friends--but don't buy it unless you want it.

If you do want it, however, and you want to avoid shipping costs, or just prefer to buy in person--I still have to come up with a number for Ellen, and that's where talking to you now comes in.

The retail cost of books is $14.99, with ten percent off for Torn World subscribers. I'm also willing to give the same discount to people who've sponsored any of my work online.

So--I'll be at Wiscon (though having the books there is a long shot), Duckon, Musecon, and Windycon for sure. Other cons are possible, if the driving time's not too far--I won't have vacation days for a year.

If you know now that you want to buy direct from me at one of these cons or any other gatherings that I might normally attend (such as Milwaukee housefilks), you can help me out!  Just let me know how many copies you want, and when/where you want them, and I'll make sure to order enough copies so I can reserve your copy/copies for you.  To say nothing of not having enough with me at the event you'll be at.  You can leave a comment here, or send a message on LJ or facebook or at the Torn World forums--or even send an e-mail if you know it.  ill put your name on my list and you can pay me when you get the book.

You can also help me out another way--if you know an independent bookstore that might like to sell the book, or someplace that would be a good venue for a reading, please let me or ellenmillion  know about them and let them know about us.  I'm planning to find time to go by local (Milwaukee, Madison, and Chicago, at least) stores in person, as many as I can identify, though I doubtless won't get to all of them as fast as I would have if I were still unemployed.

Thank you in advance for any advice, information, and (of course) orders!  I've really appreciated all of your support in the last couple of years.

P.S.  If you qualify for the discount, tell me that too, so I can keep track.
