A couple notes on the direct print orders I’m offering for the next couple weeks.
For the love of Rat, don’t send money before I give you a quote and confirm your book is still available. First-come first-serve means exactly that.
Here’s how I’m processing orders:
Each morning, I get up and read the emails with the subject BOOKS. I collect the books each person wants, put them in the correct size envelope, weigh them, and make a quote with shipping. Each envelope gets a sticky note with the person’s name and the weight.
The next morning, I see who paid. I sign those books and ship those people. Any unpaid books go back on the shelves. One of these envelopes contains my last copy of the Networknomicon, but if it’s not bought someone else can have it.
I then pack & quote new requests.
Last, I check my email for people who have paid since I started.
No, I sit corrected. That’s not last. Last is when I realize that people are buying first edition Absolute BSD or, weirder, first edition Gatecrasher and wonder “what the heck?” But it’s a good bafflement. One I appreciate.
