can't sleep books will eat me

everyone's a winner, bargains galore

I'm in danger of being eaten alive by author copies, which means it's time to move as many as possible from my shelves to your shelves!

This will be the only book sale of 2012. It will run through midnight EDT next Monday, 6/11/2012. Get books now or wait for next year!

All books are signed and personalized. !!!!!Handling, packaging, and shipping within the USA is included in the listed price of the books!!!!!

I sell at cover price rounded up (I'm claiming that damned penny) plus $5.00 for mass market paperbacks/$7.00 trade paperbacks and trade hardcovers within the US.

For international shipping, please add an additional $8.00 per book to the listed price. So if the book is listed for $13.00 including shipping, the international total is $21.00.

There are one or two items listed that will sell for more than cover price, because they are OOP or otherwise rare, and I need the money.

To purchase a book or set of books, please comment on this entry with your name and the books you would like to reserve, and the total you expect to pay.

If I am shipping outside of the United States of America, please mention that when you comment.



Because I have limited quantities of each title, this is strictly first come, first served.

I will comment to let you know your order has been received and that stock is available, and to confirm your math.

The address for money is matociquala at gmail dot com. Please wait for my comment before sending money.

When paying, please include your real name, your lj name, a list of what you have purchased, how you would like the book personalized, and your shipping address in the comments section of the Paypal form.

Otherwise it sometimes gets tricky to match up spikeluvr69 with Bob Jones, you know what I mean?

Yes, I only take Paypal. Sorry about that.

The chapbook stories that went with the limited edition New Amsterdam novellas are in the process of being collected into an ebook, with a new novella entitled "The Body of the Nation." More on that as soon as I have details, but--for those of you who don't want to pay collector prices for the edition with the pretty endpapers but still want to read the stories, there will soon be an easy, low-environmental-impact way to go about it.

In non-book-sale-related stuff, I am also doing a Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything) on r/Fantasy tomorrow. You can ask questions all day; I will answer them live starting at 8 pm tomorrow night.

Here's the teaser post. The post for questions goes up tomorrow morning. Other recent AMA-answerers include nojojojo, jimchines, and that boy I Like, among others.

Also, I am participating in the Clarion West Write-a-thon! I have pledged to write 250 words a day through 4th Street, through ConVergence, through ReaderCon. I'm fucking nuts, and you can support my crazy self-abuse at the pledge page, here.

Here's a photo of why I need to sell books.



There are more boxen under the desk.
