can't sleep books will eat me

we'll see how brave you are. we'll see how fast you run.

Well, because it never rains but it pours, I've just needed to buy a new computer (my primary work machine is on its absolute last legs, being three years old and having had--a conservative estimate--some five million words of fiction and correspondence and essays and blogging pass under its keyboard). I cannot earn my living without a reliable laptop, so that was an unavoidable and immediate expense.

...and I have a significant chunk of house-closing and moving costs coming this month and next, and it's time to register my car!

And since anything I don't sell I have to pack and move, it's time for a book sale!

This book sale will run through midnight EDT next Monday, which is to say 9/19/2011.

!shipping in US is included in the listed price!


All titles are offered signed and personalized; shipping in US is included in the listed price.

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. The shipping cost has gone up a buck: I'm sorry, but they're charging me more for envelopes and postage than they used to.

For shipping outside the United States, please add an additional $8.00 per book to the listed price. This covers the cost of packaging and postage.

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.

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 tell you what you owe.

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.

Total: $42

Wish I could help clean house more. :) Good luck with the move!
Hey, you just paid the tax on the laptop! *g* Thank you. Overseas shipping, I presume?
Ooh! I would like a copy of A Companion to Wolves and of Tricks of London. If I'm calculating right, with shipping that comes to an even $40. Is that right? Thanks! Jane
$28, unless it's going overseas?
Gah, I can't remember if I need a new copy of Ink and Steel or Hell and Earth in TPB. My son ripped the cover of one of them. And I'm not home to check. :(
I'll reserve you a copy of Hell & Earth, and you can release it if you don't need it. If it's Ink & Steel, send me an email--I am out of sale copies of that, but I may have one or two extras floating around the house.


Well, I too am facing a move and already own most everything on your list so probably don't need to double up. :-) Even though the signed/personalized idea sounds awesome.

Are you up for a straight donation? Some little thing so I can feel like I am helping to keep you writing?

Re: Books

Absolutely. I have a bunch of fiction up for free on my website, and if you would like to donate in support of that, I would be very grateful.

And thank you!
I would like a copy of The Tempering of Men. I think I might want more though so I have to look at the shelf when I get home. Can you reserve that for now and I'll let you know. xoxoxo
I'd like the TPB of Blood & Iron and also the TBP of Whiskey & Water if it's unclaimed as of yet, for a total of $46 (or $23 if I'm too late for W&W). Cathy Sandifer.
