As far as I know, I'm the first (but I'm willing to bet NOT the last) DC member to write a novel. For anyone who hasn't followed the main thread on this topic, I wrote a 70,000-word science-fiction novel that was released in late July. Thus far, it's garnering 4- and 5-star reviews, and I've made a whopping $23+ in royalties (I haven't quit my day-job: though I have been laid-off for the past six months -- hence, time available to write a novel). I owe much of my success to two wonderful proofreaders, 4wd and Perry Mowbray.

With significant help from the very talented and equally generous Perry Mowbray, I was able to get a properly formatted CreateSpace version of the book, and so can now offer autographed paperbacks of the novel. If you don't care about the autograph, you can order straight from Amazon, in either paperback or e-book format.

If you'd like to have an author-autographed paperback, I'm selling them for $10.80 + shipping/handling (since I'll have to mail the autographed book to any takers). The purpose of this post is to get a head-count of those who definitely want an autographed copy. When I have five or more definites (made definite by PayPal-ing me in advance), I'll have copies printed on demand, and get them shipped.

So, if you really want an autographed copy of this debut novel of what will become a science-fiction trilogy, please respond on this thread. If we meet head-count threshhold, I'll collect payments and enact an order or books.

Please note here that you have seven different options when it comes to purchasing an e-book copy of the book. As explained on that page, I prefer eBookOnFire or Smashwords, but you shop wherever you please :)

That's two people. Is five a sufficient minimum?

The link to e-book purchase locations from my OP states that eBookOnFire and Smashwords are, in that order, my preferred purchase sites. However, for the consumer, right now the best deal is here on PayHip, using the coupon code from this blog article. Be aware that it's EPUB, so if you have a Kindle you'll have to convert it using Calibre or Zamzar or something. You can get more of a discount (25%) simply by sharing the PayHip URL for my book on Facebook or Twitter. After you FB-Share or Tweet, you'll see the price has dropped to $2.24 :)

Thanks, superboyac! That's 3 ppl in less than 30 minutes. Maybe we should say 10 people or until August 13th, whichever comes first. That way, at the latest, we'll be putting an order together and doing PayPal transactions within 7 days.

I'd be interested but after looking up the postage rates on USPS I'm either doing something wrong or it's over twice the price of the book  :-\

I mailed a similar size/weight book to a friend recently.  It was six dollars and change.

Don't forget that USPS has a cheap "media" rate, applicable when sending books.

Yeah, I won't be overnighting these. Nor insuring them, unless the buyer wants to pay extra.

I will find out the cheap media rate when the first 3 paperbacks arrive this week, and will give feedback here.

Any indication on shipping-cost to Europe and other non-US destinations?

TIA

My first order of paperbacks (only 3 copies) arrived. These three are already sold to local friends. Here's a picture of the book. It's 384 pages, 12-pt Arial.
