A huge batch of GameSpite Year One, Vol. 1 is going in the mail tomorrow, which brings me pretty close to the home stretch. That’s very good. Not so good is the fact that once I started shipping international orders I discovered that I had grossly underestimated the cost of international shipping even more than I had underestimated the cost of domestic shipping. Like, by about $8 per book. So my razor-thin break-even margins on the books? Yeah, actually it looks like this venture is costing me about $500. I wouldn’t think it possible, but there are the numbers staring me right in the face. And what great timing, too, coming right when I’m already nearly broke and desperately trying to save up for a wedding.
So, enjoy your book when it arrives. It’s probably one of a kind! I’d have to file bankruptcy to publish a second volume, which I have to say is not something I particularly aspire to. I suppose it’s my own fault for dabbling in the vanity press…although in this case it’s more like “hubris press.”
Edit: Uh, this wasn’t a request for money or sympathy or anything. Just an explanation of why you most likely won’t ever see a second GameSpite book.
