    Ah. Didn't know that. Got it. Well, your baby seems to be off to a great start, then!
    Thanks! It's a chance to just do whatever I want, so that's been fun!

    LRB is owed by Rich, I’m just the publisher. LetterPress Publications is all mine.

    I agree with you. It is a tough business risk in this economy. Hard to know what the right move would be. I applaud Brian for taking a leap.

    I suspect a factor in that was that you weren't required to pay upfront. With the way things are looking, I suspect a larger percentage of customers than is typical are not going to be able to pay when the time comes.

    I am very happy for Brian and his endeavors but I must say that I'm surprised a Joe Hill book sold more copies than a Stephen King.

    In related news, a forthcoming REVIVAL movie was announced today.

    I think Brian knocked it out of the park with his first endeavor and Revival isn't a real popular King novel IMO. So folks didn't hesitate to jump on this one and Hill is pretty popular despite all the crap he gets about signing everything. That being said, the final total was double my guess. I low-balled it due to a limited having been done before, but apparently folks were hungry for a US limited. I can't wait to see how bad ass the Lettered is going to be!

    Goddamn, I'm good!

    Congrats on that print run, Brian!!

    I guessed high, but not high enough. I was 305 short. I did really not expect the total would be so high. ~Cap

    My mistake. I skimmed the posts and missed those.

    Me and TacomaDiver were both off by 250. No one even got close. Oh well.

    saginawhorror guessed 1500 so I think he is the closest? Unless I missed something which is entirely possible.
