    Ordered. Any idea on how many are being signed? Either way I love signatures so I am excited about this one!

    No, no idea at all how many are being signed…frankly, knowing Harris’ past reluctance for promotion and signing, I’m surprised he’s signing any at all. With that in mind, I wouldn’t be surprised if it was only, say, 100. But given that they’re coming from Barnes and Noble, that low number seems unlikely. So…500? 1000? No idea, but I sure have to think it’s on the low end of whatever spectrum we might guess it to be.

    Then how can these still be available for ordering? The page has been live for a few weeks and the price is insanely low. No matter what, I'm thrilled t find out how this all turns out.

    VJ Books is selling them on pre-order for $60 and $100 upon release. This is some kinda crazy for sure with what's going on with this book.

    I find VJ to be typically priced 30% to 50% above the current market value.

    I guess we really all owe Ron a huge round of beers for this one.

    Everyone's happiness when they receive a $20 book worth $200+ is all I need.

    Well, and to follow me on Twitter so I can break 500 followers and rub my social-media savvy daughter's nose in it.

    But that's all I need.

    Oh, and to include Jeff in your nightly prayers that he sees the light and becomes Bentley Little's #1 fan.

    Happiness, followers, and prayers for Jeff -- that's all I need.

    I figure that if you didn't like The Mailman you are a lost cause. I will pray for you just the same. And I already follow Ron on Twitter so I have done my part!

    If that's his best, then yeah. It don't look good. But who knows? Maybe my mood will change and I won't be such a curmudgeon and I'll let a Little love in.

    Or Suntup could do one of his books!

    Dress will be casual -- except for Jeff, who as Toastmaster must wear his Suntup best:

    I've hinted at meeting forum members twice:

    Martin - while he couldn't meet up, it worked out because my car's battery died on the way to Portland. Luckily it happened when I was a mile and a half away from home.
    Ron - I offered to meeting him and get some book signed - well, then I moved to Colorado.

    I'm afraid at what the next potential meetup would bring . . .

    (Maybe that's it - this is kind of a horror forum and I'm afraid . . .)

    I think those prayers for Jeff were answered when he bought that Bentley Little book at the thrift store and had a lame excuse as to why he bought it.
    I also follow you on Twitter and love the book posts that you do.

    Sorry the prospect of meeting me forced you to move out-of-state.

    And to both of things I say, Amen and thank you.
