    Ordered my copy a couple days ago from CreateSpace (I'm all for bigger royalties) and it's set to arrive Monday. Looking forward to it!

    Huh. No, I don't believe so.

    What's the cost if you buy it direct: https://www.createspace.com/4126494

    I think only the ebook, at the moment, is available at amazon.ca

    It took me 8 days to notice this thread. Fucking Master's program. Fucking work. Fucking life.

    Time for a nice long weekend of reading.

    Just out of curiosity, how much has been raised for DLP so far?

    So, how are you guys enjoying the Anthology so far?

    Not so-subtle request for more reviews as time allows.

    So I was trying to take a picture of myself with my just-arrived copy, and this happened.

    Also, lol Shaquille. Will start reading shortly, and will leave a review upon finishing.

    The figures are a touch messy at the moment, as the royalty rate isn't set in stone for every unit sold. However, we've cleared three figures comfortably and sold a whole bunch - 40 - paperbacks. So I'd tentatively say two months and change worth of DLP site costs. Well worth the endeavor!

    In other news, I'm currently at #8 on Amazon's bestseller list and I think Dresden's going to fuck me up something terrible if I keep rising the ranks. Staring me down pretty hard here:

    He did it just now between stuff. There's also an Amazon link in there -- I'd like to know if sales are skyrocketing, after all, it's now on our frontpage ;)

    Epub version plz. DRM-bound proprietary formats spring fully-formed from the devil's semen and I don't want to give Amazon money for pushing that abomination.

    This is huge. Should have had an announcement sooner. Didn't know about it until now.

    I am going to buy a paperback.

    I'm surprised people missed this.

    Go for the paperback version, it came out beautifully.

    Or go for both - I would if I had a kindle!

    You don't actually need a kindle. You can download the kindle computer software so you can read the ebooks right on your computer, for free.

    Who reads on their computers any more? It's 2013 and my e-reader needs feeding.

    Just saw this was out, definitely buying a hard copy. Should have it done by this weekend so I can leave a review on amazon and actually know what I'm talking about.

    At that time, it was #65,614 on Amazon, and #56 in Anthologies. Five hours later, it was #50,377/#44, twelve hours after it was #32,902/#26, and now (18 hours after), it's #28,565/#22. I wonder if those are all sales to DLP members, and what it means in actual figures. What's it say on your end, Joe?

    Also: The physical copy is on Amazon.de, costs 10€ and gets shipped for free from here. I know that you get less if I order it that way, but seeing as I can't even figure out what the shipping costs are for the CreateSpace version, plus customs hassle as it gets shipped from the US, I hope you don't mind if I get it the first way.

    On the bright side, none of the German DLPers now really has an excuse not to buy it. 10 bucks! Free shipping! Doo eeet!
