I’ve had a ton of folks asking me if there was ever going to be another printing of my book on writing, You’re Not Fooling Anyone When You Take Your Laptop into a Coffeeshop, because the first print run of 500 copies sold out before its release date. Well, now I know the answer, and the answer is:
Yes. Subterranean Press just announced that it would have a second, 500-run printing of Coffeeshop which will ship in December, i.e., just in time for the holidays (clever folks up there at Subterranean). The pre-order page at Subterranean is here. As the first run sold out before it was published and copies from that run are now being sold at $250 a shot (seriously, that’s what it’s going for on AbeBooks), and this second run is still only 500 copies, it’s not just ridiculous self-promoting hype to suggest that if you really want a copy for your own (or to give as a gift) you may wish to consider pre-ordering. I’m just saying, is all.
While we’re on the subject of books of mine from Subterranean, those of you who pre-ordered the signed, limited edition of The Ghost Brigades will be happy to know it’s winging its way to you even as we speak. I got a copy of it last week and it’s friggin’ gorgeous; Vincent Chong, who did the cover art and the full-color illustrations inside, did an absolutely stunning job. You’re not going to be disappointed, and if you are disappointed, I suspect you are disappointed about most things in life, and I can’t help you there, I’m afraid.
Some signed, limited editions of Old Man’s War and The Ghost Brigades are still available if you didn’t pre-order; head over to Subterranean to find out more.
Thus endeth today’s self-promoting entry.
