On to Obsession; book business

Finished Thraxas last night, am moving on to Obsession.

Due to the rotten economy and how small publishers struggle even in good economies, several MP books are out of stock, with me and with Mystic Rose. If you are looking for them at prices close to cover, you'd better buy them now, wherever you find them. We do, however, have plenty copies of The Slave, The Trainer and The Catalyst.

I also still have numbered copies of all the books *except* The Academy. There might be a copy of The Academy hiding in a mixed case somewhere, you never know, but as far as my record keeping goes, I sold the last numbered one last week.

The numbered books are all taken from my first case of books, first printing, first copies I grab in my hands. I hand number them in gold colored ink. If I have them, they cost fifty smackers. When they are gone, they're gone.

I am giving serious thought to culling my vast porn collection. It's not that I don't like having a room full of it, it's that 1) they take up a lot of room, 2) I really don't re-read most of it, and 3) I need the money more than I need copies of old porn.

So, when/if I do, I will put notice here, on the MP Mailing list, Fetlife, my Facebook page and my website. Right now I am looking into how and where I would host the sale.
