    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!

    Well, I was WAY off with my guess. Shows how much I know. Kinda shocked at the number, though. If it had hit a thousand, I wouldn't have been surprised, but to hit 1,750 copies for a book with a $125 price tag caught me by surprise. I'm very happy for Brian as this is a HUGE win for his press.

    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 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.
