You can now buy my book in print directly from CreateSpace. I’m not sure whether it’s better to wait another week or so to order from Amazon, but I thought I’d put the link out there. It will take a bit longer to get to European markets, I imagine.
It costs $16.50; I can’t do anything about that because of the length (468 pages!). After staring at the original proof for a while, I decided to increase the font size, which made it longer, but it wasn’t short to begin with. To me, it seems like a lot of money for a paperback, and a self-published one at that, but my friend Lisa wishes me to remind readers of a quote from one of John Dunning’s books: “A book has always cost about what a meal in a good restaurant costs. . . I get sick of hearing how expensive books are. Which would you rather have, a good book or a tender steak? I know what I’d take, seven days a week.” And it’s a nice thick meaty book, okay? Or you can think of it as a few vente frappucinos if you’d like.
That said, the ebook is just $4.99, so you have a choice.
Please drop me a note if you find typos and I will fix them in a later edition. These are mostly going to be places where italics should have happened and didn’t (or rather, where italics did happen and then were stolen away again on a random basis by a vengeful italics god). I think I’ve caught most of them, but some are likely still lurking. The errors make me itch, but should not interfere with reading pleasure unless you’re a professional proofreader, and then only on a few brief occasions.
Whew! And now on to more entertaining matters, I hope.
