Ordered a carton of The Portal from my publisher last Saturday. Lightning Source (the POD vendor) shipped the books on Wednesday. They arrived on Friday. Now they’re clogging up my kid’s empty bedroom while he’s off in the snowy Middle East.
There are now six vendors (besides Amazon) offering it for sale on the Amazon site. They’re all undercutting Amazon’s price of $14.10, but they all charge $3.99 for shipping/handling; you get free shipping from Amazon if you’re a Prime member. One vendor is offering a used copy, in good condition, for $999.11. I wrote the book, and even I think that’s a bit excessive.
If you want one of mine, let me know.
