A few years ago I collected up some of my Whatever posts on writing into a Subterranean Press book entitled You’re Not Fooling Anyone When You Take Your Laptop Into a Coffee Shop: Scalzi on Writing. The book was presented in a limited edition of 500; it sold out. We made a second printing, also of 500; it also sold out. Then people kept asking when it would be available via the Kindle and Nook e-book stores.
The answer is: Now! Actually, the answer is “it’s been available via the Kindle and Nook stores for a couple of weeks but I didn’t tell you because I was on tour and it slipped my mind,” but “now,” is shorter. So: Now!
And the even better news is that this book comes to you with a pretty cheap price: $4.99 at both Amazon and B&N, so whichever of those two readers you prefer, there you have it.
What? You prefer to get your electronic reading material via Apple’s iBookstore? Well, fine, it’s there too, and also for $4.99. Because we want you to be happy.
And if you really want a hard copy instead, here’s the title listing on Abebooks, where the cheapest one is going for $145 (plus shipping). I think the electronic version might be the better deal, myself.
