Coffee Shop on Amazon

The Amazon listing for You’re Not Fooling Anyone When You Take Your Laptop to a Coffee Shop: Scalzi on Writing is now up, so if you’re interested in pre-ordering through your Amazon account, now you can. The release date is sometime in the August timeframe. You can also still pre-order it via the Subterranean Press site.

This is going to be a “boutique” sort of book (i.e., fairly low press run), and the size of the press run will be to some extent gauged on early pre-orders. So if you want to be an active influencer of my immediately literary future, buy now!

(Well, not buying now will also cause you to be an active influencer of my immediately literary future, as well, I admit. Just not in a “buy Athena a college education” good sort of way. Hey, your choice.)

As an aside, the Amazon ranking for Coffee Shop at this very moment is 1,021,762 (on account that no one has bought one yet), while Old Man’s War is at 953. That’s a spread of 1,020,809 positions. I wonder if that’s the widest range between books on Amazon.

(checks something)

Hmmmm. Nope. Seems my Rough Guide to Money Online is at 1,601,456. That’s a 1,600,503-position spread! I’m an even bigger loser than before! Whoo-hoo!

  1. Well, I see that in one day YNFAWYTYLTACS:SOW has gone from #998,683 to #28,305, so it appears you’re moving up with a bullet. Blogpimpin’ pays!

    Still, $35 for a 250-page hardcover–ouch! A “boutique” edition indeed! (Not that aspiring writers won’t get $35 worth of helpful tips out of it, I’m sure.) The 37% discount helps.

  2. Is there a plan to ever bring this to a wider (and cheaper) print run? Not to dilute your sales numbers or nuthin but…. it’s a good value for $35 but a little rich for my usual book-buying blood.

  3. Don, the price on Amazon is somewhat cheaper.

    No plans at the moment for a wider print run, although I’m sending the manuscript to my non-fiction agent and we’ll see where he thinks it might fly.
