    Sadly I don't think we'll do this deal again next year. At least not in this incarnation, as most likely we're going to lose money on it.

    Lol, basically we made the deal too good. The club I think was more about cash flow than anything else, but so much of business is as much about cash flow as it is about profit.

    It was also an attempt to promote our new eBook line outside the readership who already knew what a Cemetery Dance was. We received coverage on a ton of blogs, websites, and eBook forums when we announced the program and there are a lot of brand new customers who bought the deal. The hope is, they'll dig what they see and they'll be intrigued by the free Limited Edition and at least consider checking out the rest of what we do.

    Very true, as well as once the all you can read deal is over, stick around and keep buying more ebooks.

    Yep. Every reader helps support the company, whether they're buying the eBooks or the print editions.

    The margins in the collectible book business keep getting tighter and tighter, which is why so many presses have gone under in the last ten years. My hope is that in the next decade our eBooks will be play a major role in keeping our Limited Editions affordable and flourishing for many years to come. With the way the cost of the printing is skyrocketing, other revenue streams are critical to publishers who want to keep beautiful print editions alive.

    Well then if you get more coustomers and more revenue streams that is great.Do you know how many coustomers have stuck around and continued to purchase your books after Blockade Billy was released.If the percentage is the same or greater for the e-book club this year will that help with revenue.I hope you will be around for a long time.

    That's something that's really hard to keep track of. We also hope we'll be around for a long time.

    Guys, well thought out (and executed) plan, and I, for one, am absolutely certain CD will continue to flourish

    I hope so.I hear the words needed cash flow and I kind of freak out.However it seems that CD has set the standard for what quality is about in a limited edition.Hope the people who receive their first CD book through this club will recognize that.

    My original post wasn't a request to locate when to find recent ebook releases on the website. I was able to locate that, and that's where I was able to determine that there were 4 new releases since the membership announcement. Based upon what I am hearing here the 'dozens of new eBooks' in the original membership announcement is not likely. While I agree that having the previous released titles included was a nice benefit - I was really looking forward to the new eBooks mentioned in the original offer, so this is disappointing. Just my two cents.

    We do have "dozens" in the works, but in the works, doesn't mean ready to launch. Right now we're trying to spread the one's we have ready out so we make sure we have things to announce. If we released all of what we have ready now, than nothing for 6 months, most people wouldn't be very happy.

    Getting $130+ worth of eBooks right away, while also getting a $40 signed Limited Edition and dozens of other eBooks over the course of the year, all for $49... is "disappointing"...? I don't follow your thinking.

    @BGill - the ebook deal was a massive discount!! Plus, you keep referring to the fact that dozens of books were promised in 2012, but "only" 4 have been released... Its only March, still a long way to go before 2012 is over and done with. That's plenty of time to get the new ebook count into the doznes!

    OK, not trying to sound like I am complaining too much - but everyone seems to be missing my point. Getting $130 worth of books right away is great, and the limited hardcover is great. If that's ALL that was mentioned in the offer, you're right - I'd have nothing to complain about.

    'Getting $130+ worth of eBooks right away, while also getting a $40 signed Limited Edition and dozens of other eBooks over the course of the year, all for $49... is "disappointing"...? I don't follow your thinking.' Again, are we really saying dozens of books? I understand we are only at the end of March - 4 books, 1 since January - I'm just looking for an update, plan an simple.

    Bottom line - if we do end up getting dozens of books, great - I'll be happy. If not, I will be disappointed as that is what was stated in the membership.

    BGill - I've been known to buy a thing or two from CD, and I can tell you, here and now, that this is the best deal that they have offered (and there have been a few)!!! My only regret ??? Getting on the eReader bandwagon too late to take advantage of the deal while Brian & Dan had their metaphorical pants down around their knees !!!!! Mate, you got on board, so ... just ... enjoy .. all the benefits to come in the next 8 months

    We don't share our publication plans for unannounced books, so we can't tell you what titles are coming, but it's a mix of brand new releases and some "classic" oldies that haven't been available as eBooks yet and yes you will get everything you were promised.

    Great - looking forward to hearing about the titles as they are announced. I am a long-time customer too, although probably not as long-time as some folks here. I was even part of the Coupon Book club for a couple of years (circa 2006-2007). I appreciate the update.
