There are only 10 official lettered hardcovers. If I have luck with making them, maybe I'll get a few presentation copies. Of course, those will go to Mother Luke first...
Yes, I agree that FL will be a big deal. The paperback copies are selling fast and I have not made an announcement to my regular customers. Please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want any. I can't make any promises once I notify my 300+ people on my mailing list... I'm just sayin.
The paperback edition of the book will ship in a few days. Anyone interested, please paypal the $5 plus $2 shipping worldwide to me at email@example.com. I can also take checks and cash, but ask that you please let me know asap that you are sending so that I don't receive the money and have to return it if this sells out as fast as I think that it will. The hardcovers take a bit more time and will be ready in about 10 days. and are not only sold out, but I have a waiting list, should anyone back out.
My website has been updated and it is now very easy to order the Father Luke book. I just sent an e-mail to my full mailing list. To order, please go to www.bospress.net and click on "order". Otherwise, please e-mail me and have me hold a copy for you. The paperback copies are half sold out now. I don't want to seem like I'm nagging, but I have no problem holding copies for anyone interested. Otherwise, I'm afraid that they will sell out very shortly. I just want to make sure that everyone that is interested on this forum gets a chance....
You know i just got into Father Luke in the last month or so and I almost always check out his poems now on his myspace that he posts pretty regulary and I'm just glad a good guy is getting published and this is just a wonderful thing indeed.
I must be behind the curve. I didn't even see this thread until today, when I got the email on the softcover. Too damned busy, I guess. Congrats, Father Luke. The first hardcover BOSP is a huge thing (well, not physically, I imagine. It's probably small or normal sized at best, but symbolically...)
And congrats to Bill on his first hardcover. Post photos please.
Either one of you would be plenty -- together is unimaginable. Hope it's one of those podcasts you can hear later, in case I'm busy at the time working on my daughter's 1987 LeBaron or building a Lego village for my grandson.
