I've just been informed that Terri and my first adult fairy tale anthology, Snow White, Blood Red is going into its ninth printing in pb, which brings the total to a bit above 72,000 copies!!
I suspect this is very good for a mass market anthology.
|Posted on Wednesday, July 14, 2004 - 03:07 pm: |
Woo hoo!!!! Very good? It's effing fantastic. Way to go.
|Posted on Wednesday, July 14, 2004 - 03:45 pm: |
Yeah (blush)! If only all of our anthologies (and yours) sold that well, we'd all be doing great :-)
|Posted on Wednesday, July 14, 2004 - 04:40 pm: |
True. We'd be holidaying in foreign climes and living it large. Still, when it does happen, it's pretty special.

Great news! I've got a copy somewhere . . . been meaning to read it soon.
How many copies in each printing, BTW?
|Posted on Thursday, July 15, 2004 - 09:41 am: |
In this most recent printing it was another 5,000 copies. That's how they usually do it.

"Adult fairy tale anthology?"
Oh, I see, as opposed to YA anthology. Still, I like my first impression.
|Posted on Friday, July 16, 2004 - 09:29 am: |
Just out of curiousity, how many copies of your "Year's Best" anthology usually sell?
|Posted on Friday, July 16, 2004 - 01:21 pm: |
I suspect about 5,000 in hc and 10,000 in trade pb although that's really a guess. The books continue to sell over time.

I have the seventh through to the sixteenth. It has now become a tradition for my spouse to hunt down one of the missing YB for my birthday or Christmas. The internet makes it too easy; he hunts on foot throughout Toronto.
On a side note, 'The Dark' won't be available in Canada until September, or so says Indigo Books. That baffles me. But I'm going to try to wait it out. It will be an appropriate time of year for such an anthology, I think.
|Posted on Friday, July 16, 2004 - 02:16 pm: |
T: The Dark has been out in hc since last October. It's the trade pb that's coming out this year in October. You could order in on amazon or b&n if you want the hc now. Not sure which one you're looking for. Also, it's certainly available from any genre booksellers in the US--don't know about Canada.
|Posted on Friday, July 16, 2004 - 05:26 pm: |
Thanks. I'll order it from amazon, probably. I should've been suspicious from the moment the store clerk referred to you as Allen. It's been a year since I first went in looking for it in hard cover and was told that Canada would be lagging behind the US.
My copy of Snow White, Blood Red is starting to show its years. It's been read more than once. Ruby Slippers, Golden Tears is great, too.

I'll buy Little Deaths. Do you take check, visa or mastercard? :-)
|Posted on Sunday, February 04, 2007 - 12:27 pm: |
I'll take a check but I'll need to find out how much postage is. I can sell you the book itself for $20 + postage. I also take paypal :-)
Do you have my email address? (You can ask Lucius for it)--I don't want to post it online.
|Posted on Sunday, February 04, 2007 - 02:26 pm: |
Sounds good. I'll mail you a check. Pardon my ignorance -- what's paypal?
Speaking of Lucius, as I recall his story, The Last Time is in Little Deaths? I found the story's denouement of obsession hilarious. Being manically possessed by the object of one's love is infinitely scary and funny. Least in literature. :-) Lucius' bitter and impassioned eloquence, sense of humor, slayed me. I look forward to reading it again. Been a long time.

Paypal is a very popular way to send money from one person to another. (Frequently used for Ebay purchases)
Paypal will allow you to pay via check, Visa or Mastercard.
Media mail is a very inexpensive way to ship books (albeit slowly):
1 lb 1.59
2 lb 2.07
3 lb 2.55
|Posted on Sunday, February 04, 2007 - 03:03 pm: |
Thanks PM -- that's cheap compared with other mail rates. Using paypal sounds great, and will thankfully allow me to continue my transmortal habit of living and paying on borrowed money and time. :-)
|Posted on Sunday, February 04, 2007 - 03:11 pm: |
We're all living on either or own or someone else's borrowed money and time...
|Posted on Sunday, February 04, 2007 - 04:02 pm: |
Ditto. You've hit the nail, PM. Especially true in terms of the leprous medieval industrial complex continuous rape of earth's crashing resources, and subsequent climate change.
|Posted on Sunday, February 04, 2007 - 08:04 pm: |
Just get me your mailing address and if you want to use paypal or a check, it's all the same to me...
Yes, that story is indeed in Little Deaths.
|Posted on Monday, February 05, 2007 - 08:01 am: |
Thank you. Now that you mention it, I'd be more comfortable if it were removed. Appreciate that.
Lucius emailed me your snail address (I asked for your email but I guess he got mixed up.) Anyway, my email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Let me know how much for the book and I'll mail out a check today or tomorrow, if you want.

I've got about five copies of The Fifth OMNI BOOK OF Science Fiction on-hand and would like to sell them for $5 each plus postage and mailer. The antho was published in 1987, is a mass market and there's a bit of yellowing on the page edges but otherwise they're in very good condition --and uncracked.
