I will have about 2000 on hand when they arrive. I can't afford to put them on Amazon as they want the book at about 40% of retail and I get the honor of paying the shipping to them. If you want to use Amazon you need to plan on making something like 5000 copies to get the price low enough to compensate for their requirements. 5000 copies would cost something like 40-45 K dollars, a bit more than I budgeted.
Wow, I'm really glad I stumbled across these forums. This looks like a fantastic book. I just ordered my copy. :)
Ron, instead of having Amazon distribute the book, couldn't you simply list yourself as a third party supplier/seller? Of course Amazon would demand a commission, but it seems like there would be so many advantages to having a listing there complete with rankings, reviews, etc.
