Anyone else really excited to see a new Douglas Clegg book. I am so excited I wish it was July already.Might have to read one of his classic books before then.

Is this going to be released as an eBook as well? Excited for this, but unable to get it at the moment

I think I'm gonna pass. Not only because he's an author I'm not really familiar with, but also because I need to build back up a base of books to draw upon so I can order future Grab Bags.

I'd highly recommend reading some Clegg. Definitely an author I enjoy

My thoughts exactly.

Clegg's stories have been hit and miss for me. Wild Things and Isis did nothing for me. On the other side of the coin Afterlife and Night Cage were fantastic stories. I did not jump on this immediately but will probably place an order while I have the CDCC discount available to me. The story sounds good.

The only Clegg book that I have read that I didn't like was Goat Dance. The rest that I have read. Have been really great.

I agree that Clegg's work is a little hit or miss but when it hits it's pretty darn good. This book sounds intriguing. Looking forward to it.

I think Doug will be putting out an eBook at some point. He's amazingly smart when it comes to eBooks and their marketing, so he handles most of his own projects these days, I think. This one is definitely worth a read in whatever format you can get it in!

Well the 50% off sale combined with having some room to spend part of my gift certificate money meant I could swing for this title! :D Definitely looking forward to this

That's really cool, but it's also one of the reasons why we can no longer purchase gift certificates during CD sales... :eek:

I was kinda bummed about not being able use the discount on gift certificates as well, but I figured it had more to do with the new King books. Everybody would load up on discounted gift certificates knowing the next book will be announced in six months and essentially everyone would get the book for half off. Can't blame CD for making sure they make their profit; they are running a business after all. I think it's been very generous of them to sell gift certificates for half off in the past. I can't think of many other companies that allow that.

Unfortunately, the forthcoming Doubleday Years books are not the reason why we are no longer able to purchase gift certificates during sales, as CD have always been announcing major releases without any issue. Brian confirmed that it's because people were loading up on discounted gift certificates and then using them in conjunction with 50% off coupons, which resulted in CD taking huge losses. A remedy to this needs to be found urgently, if we are ever going to be able to purchase discounted gift certificates ever again. :eek:

For me this is an absolute disaster, because purchasing discounted gift certificates is practically the only way I can afford to budget for CD announcements. :( :(

Thanks for the clarification, T-Dogz.

I can see where discounted gift certificates used during 50% off sales could be really bad for CD. I don't know what the solution could be. Maybe not allow gift certificates as payment during percentage off sales? That wouldn't necessarily be fair to those that hold non-discounted gift certificates, though. Maybe a different code generated for discounted gift certificates that couldn't be used for percentage off sales?

Don't know if any of those ideas would be feasible. Seems like the days of discounted gift certificates might be behind us...

Tough predicament. Need a system that allows gift certs purchased on sale to only apply on regular priced books.

This is one of my favorite books we've published so far this year in terms of the story AND the production values. I think it's a really great looking book. I hope everyone else likes it, too!

For what it's worth, I got my shipping notification email the same day the book arrived (though the email did show the actual shipping date as a few days earlier).
