    Amazon now lists the publishing date as September 15, 2006. Sounds like the April shipping date is out of the question now.

    Went ahead and pre-ordered my copy [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/cool.gif[/img] .

    If I'm lucky, they'll only print 100 copies. I'll buy them all, sign them, and then sell them on EBay. At the prices I've seen out of print copies of Lowrie's books or others go for, I'll make a very shiny penny out of it!

    Soooo...if I pre-order, I don't have to pay now? I'm not exactly rollin' in the dough at the moment. I need to file my tax return...

    Barry, would you make more money if we bought the book directly from you once it is published? I prefer to let the man who does all the hard work and research make the profit rather than the middle man ie amazon.

    Hey Barry,

    To follow that model you'll have to sell
    100 vol 1 100 vol 2 and what seems like 50,000 vol 3

    Got mine book pre-ordered. Hope it makes it to the presses
    Too bad you can't get some ready for ICPS meeting in June?
    Nice captive market there...

    Well, I actually wrote the book on a flat fee basis, and not royalties. So if it sells one copy or 1,000,000, I get the same.

    Thanks for the consideration, though!
