    I have had nothing but positive experiences selling. The app is very intuitive and easy to use. It takes me less than a minute to post a book with photos and prices. Most info is auto-filled by scanning the barcode on your book. Shipping is a breeze as well. All the guess work is taken out. The Pango app will calculate the shipping for you so you don't need to worry. Once a book is sold, you will just print out a shipping label that will be in your account. Package your book, attach the label, and drop in your mailbox. Most times, I don't even have to go to the post office. I drop the book in my mailbox at the end of my driveway and it's gone. You can track the book in the app so you know when it reaches its destination. I bought a bulk order of bubble packages on Amazon so it take basically no time to get your orders ready to ship. Super easy. I've been selling for about 6 months now and I have sold over $500 worth of books. All mass market stuff that I just had around the house or in boxes. Highly recommended.

    Just received my copy of Aron Beauregard's "Playground" Deluxe edition. Very happy with how it turned out. All the production aspects turned out great, and all the little goodies that the author included in the package were fun. Can't wait to dig into the story sometime soon as it sounds insane!

    Pango Books is fantastic. I'm quite active on there, mostly as a seller, but there are great books and deals to be found for sure.

    I hope it works out. While it's only been a couple of days so I'm not too worried that books haven't shipped yet, I also haven't received a reply to a message I sent shortly afterward. A first order at a new (to me) site with a silent seller makes me a bit nervous. I'll give it a couple more days, see what happens.

    On a related note, I ordered my first books from Pango Books last night...never bothered with it before though I guess I'd heard its name a time or two before, but happened to check it after crapping out at eBay, ABE, and Biblio on finding cheap copies of Sarah Langan's early horror pbos, and lo and behold the same seller had all three books for a couple bucks a piece.
    Huh, never heard of Pango books.  Will have to check them out after work.  Thanks for the info on them.

Every now and then, I like to swing over to Book Outlet's website to see if I can find any good steals from among my list. Today, I found four books from my list on the site at very reduced prices and I'm stoked! Grabbed the titles below:

    1) The Mountain in the Sea by Ray Nayler

    2) No Second Chances by Rio Youers

    3) An Honest Man by Michael Koryta

    4) The Guide by Peter Heller

    Damn, big book-mail day today, with arrivals from Lividian, SST, and Brian Keene’s Vortex Books: CHILD ALONE WITH STRANGERS, COLD IN JULY, and A BETTER WORLD (signed trade 1st HC) by Sarah Langan. The first two were kindly held by Brian and Paul while I was away from home for a month.

    Gotta love days like these.

    EDIT: And the today (the day after the above) I received my S/L of THE DRIVE-IN: MULTIPLEX from Thunderstorm. Cool beans.

    I liked Vampire Junction, and if you like it, it's the first book in a trilogy. I really don't remember the second two books at this point.
    Oh wow, didn't even realize it was a part of a trilogy.  I only recognized the name at all because I happened to remember the SubPress edition.  I'll have to keep an eye out if I enjoy the first book.

Have never read either title but have high hopes. I remember that SubPress did an LE for Vampire Junction a while back; so, I figured that it's probably worth the read. For the Tessier, I have read some of his other stuff, such as the Nightwalkers, and enjoyed it; so, I figured I would give this one a try. It's also a Dark Harvest book, and I always loved that press, so that excited me as well!
