The downside of selling out the first print run of your story collection in late November, is that all through December, no one can find the damn thing on Amazon.com.* Hopefully, this didn’t ruin Christmas for too many yard-apes – or worse, cause them to inadvertently pay $200+ from the online book dealers at Amazon.
The upside of selling out the first print run of your story collection, on the other hand, is that there is a second printing. It’s been available for awhile now at Amazon.ca, but as of yesterday, Amazon.com lay hold of some copies. So all is as it should be. Not in time for Christmas, true, but there are still plenty of shopping days ’til Valentine’s Day.
