You don't have ANY spare copies lying around the house? You could put those up for sale...

I'm not sure if I should auction my copy or lock it in a safe!

(Don't you think it's time you republish this sucker?)

...and worth every penny!
I better hide my copy.

I got a copy but it's in storage. Every time someone mentions how valuable it is, I wanna run & check to see if it's still there & in one piece!

Bill, gotta ask...

What is the deal with the book? You don't plan on self-publishing anymore, right?

Have you tried taking it to someplace like Michael Wiese Prod to see if they're interested?


Seems like there's a fair amount of interest around the scribosphere, lots of good word-of-mouth.

Or do the Lulu.com or createspace.com thing (avail thru amazon)and publish on demand.

I'm actually doing the revisions in December! Then it will probably go to a publisher, but I also looked at some printers for a 5k run. A publisher could probably get the places I haven't gotten to.

Meanwhile, someone sent me an e-mail today promising me the secret to lasting longer in bed. I opened it up right away... but not a single hint at how to sleep past noon!

Bill, you should save a screencap of that page and, once the revisions are done, use that as part of your sales package that you send to publishers.

Yours is definitely the best nuts-and-bolts book out there, and the fact that it's hitting that price shows that people know it.

ian is right Bill!

I've been a student of your website for a bit...and I have what I believe is an outline for the making of a powerful little story.

And the more I read your script tips...the more compelling this story becomes.

I suppose everyone feels that way about their scripts.

I just happen to be right. Right just like ian.

Am I the only one who likes the fact that the price just went up on a stock I own?

Horde those secrets, people. It's a dog-eat-dog world out there.

That really makes no CENTS!

Thanks! Great idea! Just did it... I have screen caps of the Amazon page at $199.95 and the other place.

I had two copies. Sold one on ebay and kept the signed copy for myself. I'm actually in the middle of rereading it for the action/scifi novel we're writing and it applies to that, too. BTW, Hi Bill! From Lou and Bob out in the desert.
