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:

  1. 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).
  2. Give me your name, address, phone number and/or email address.
  3. Tell me if you would like me to sign your books and to whom to address my signature.
  4. Send payment and the rest of this information via PayPal at 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!
