Nearly there. The book will weigh in at about 200 pages and there will be two print versions. There will be a basic version, good enough for reading purposes, and a posh version with a higher quality paper. The posh version will be high enough quality to go on sale in bookstores. That might never happen but it’ll be available just in case.
Current estimates are that the basic version will retail around £4.50 or so, the posh one at £5.50 – £6.00. There will of course be postage on top but if I buy a batch for distribution, it’ll mean one postage charge. Then of course I have to pay postage to send to you.
So, if you want payment in books rather than cash, I think it would be four basic books per story or three of the posh ones per story. That should come out reasonably fair, I think.
Everyone gets a copy anyway, that goes without saying. If you prefer to keep your address private in case I turn up one day and drink all your whisky, I can send you a PDF copy instead.
Back to work… I really want this one available for Halloween, and then get started on the Christmas one.
