The presale for my first book, “Murder in Wauwatosa: The Mysterious Death of Buddy Schumacher,” has officially begun. By ordering now, you will be able to get autographed copies as soon as I receive books (orders processed as first-come, first served). The benefit to me by doing this presale is that if I sell you the book, I get to keep more profit than if you buy it from The History Press or Amazon or a bookstore.
I wanted to wait until we had a cover for the book, but it looks like the cover will be finalized right about the time I need to tell the publisher how many books I want to order and sell on my own. The presale will help immensely in determining how many I need.
Here’s what you need to do to order your copies in advance:
- Send me $20 per book. Add $4 per book if I need to mail them to you. (If you see me or my wife on a regular basis, we’ll just get the books to you and you won’t need to pay shipping charges).
- Give me your name, address, phone number and/or email address.
- Tell me if you would like me to sign your books and to whom to address my signature.
- Send payment and the rest of this information via PayPal at firstname.lastname@example.org OR by mail to Paul Hoffman, P.O. Box 2611, Columbus, IN 47201 OR in person.
Note: This presale is for print versions only. Info on e-books will come later.
I hope to have books sometime this summer.
All the hard work is going to finally pay off soon. Thank you for your support!
