Pre-sale time is here!

I noticed that Amazon is already taking pre-orders for “Wicked Columbus, Indiana,” so now that I know how much it’s going to cost, I think I’ll start my pre-order, too.8791-wick-front-cvr

Pre-ordering helps you get a signed copy directly from me as soon as I get books delivered to me (release date is June 19) and can get everything processed and to the post office. Pre-ordering helps me get a handle on how many books to buy from my publisher.

If I order way too many, I get stuck with a bunch of books in my basement. If I order way too few, then I don’t have enough for everyone who wants a signed copy mailed to them. See, we all win.

Procedure on pre-ordering books from me:

  1. “Wicked Columbus, Indiana” costs $21.99, which includes Indiana sales tax.
  2. Add $3 postage and handling for one book. Add another $1 postage and handling for each additional book. These prices are good in the continental United States only. For other areas, contact me and I’ll check on shipping costs.
  3. Send me your name, address, phone number and/or email address.
  4. Tell me to whom to address my signature.705BuddyPostcard
  5. Send payment via PayPal at OR by mail to Paul Hoffman, P.O. Box 2611, Columbus, IN 47202.
  6. If I see you on a somewhat regular basis, you can ignore the postage and handling if you don’t mind arranging a pickup.

NOTE: I still have copies of my first book, “Murder in Wauwatosa: The Mysterious Death of Buddy Schumacher” in my basement. If you’d like one of those, follow the procedure above, except the book costs just $15 (I ordered too many. Lesson learned).
