Through the Well of Pirene - Hardcover, Information and Pricing · 11:40pm Jan 2nd, 2016

Hello, fans of Through the Well of Pirene!

As promised, the hardcover, paper edition of Through the Well of Pirene is now available for ordering!
This will be available for a limited time only, as the costs of running individual prints can be pretty expensive. This may be your only chance for owning a physical copy of the book, unless I can find an on-demand print service - and even then, it won't be as nice as a full hardcover volume!

Physical Properties
The final book will a 9x6 inch hardcover with a dust jacket. I've sent it through another round of proof-reading so there will some minor changes, corrections, and improvements, and the whole thing has been formatted to fit to the page nicely. Let me introduce you to the beautiful cover art:

Pricing
The amount I will charge depends on the number of copies I print, as there are price breaks for larger numbers of books. Costs include the actual printing of the book and my individual shipping and handling. US customers pay the price below, and add 10 USD for Canadian orders and 20 USD for international orders.

I won't charge additional shipping if someone wants additional copies of the book, so subtract 5 USD from each additional book if you're ordering more than one for friends and families.

The final price per book depends on your country of origin and the total number of copies ordered by everyone:
25-49 total orders: $45 -- Canada $50 -- International $55 (Surpassed!)
50-99 total orders: $40 -- Canada $45 -- International $50
In the unlikely event I get 100+ orders: $35 -- Canada $40 -- International $45

Special Deal! If you're a resident of the Los Angeles, San Diego, Orange, or Riverside counties or if you will be visiting them in the near future, you can come pick it up yourself for no shipping charge! Let me know and we'll arrange a meeting. We can hang out for a bit, chat, and I'll sign the book in person. You aren't too weird and sketchy, right?

How do I Order?
I will accept firm orders through Private Message or comment in a separate post you can find HERE.
Orders will be solicited through Wednesday at 11:49pm PST at which point I will set the final price, and after that I will give 48 hours to make payment (by Friday 11:49pm.) Once I receive the books I will sign and individually mail them to you.
Orders will continue to be solicited until payment closes.
I will PM you for shipping address and details. If you'd like me to write anything in the cover, that'd be the time to do it.

How do I Pay?
Through Paypal. I will provide an email address.

Additional Information
No refunds, unless you fail to receive the book.

Hey, if Fifty Shades of Grey can start out as a Twilight fanfic, I'm sure you could accomplish something. :derpytongue2:

So, if a large group orders in different groups but totals up to one hundred (in the US), does the price go down for everybody, or does the price go down per shipment order?

Ahahaha

If I get 50+ or 100+ orders, the price goes down by 5 each universally per book.

3659835 What if they've already paid?
What if someone wanted only one book?

3659837
That's why I'm soliciting the orders first and THEN payment.

3659838 Do you have a time-frame as of current?

3659846
Orders done by Wednesday, payment by friday.

Shipping to me will be 1-2 weeks, shipping to you a few days or weeks depending on location.

3659856 This Wednesday, or the 13th? 'Cause almost literally no money left from Jinglemas. I binged for family this year, and thankfully made them really happy.

I'd love to grab a copy, but I honestly can't justify spending potentially up to $70 USD (book + shipping to Australia). That's over $100 AUD :applejackunsure:

3659876
Aww, that's too bad :<
You have one thing though - you live in Australia. So it's a lovely place :D

3659876
It's actually 60usd for Australia, 40+20.

You might want to clarify that on the "Orders Go Here" page - it sounds like orders close on Wed, Jan 6, but the order page says "Order period ends 1/13/2016 at 11:59 PM." (it's fixed)

Oh, yes! These are MINE!!! Gimmee!

Have you considered running a small meetup for the LA thing? :D

3662485
Yeah I could do that. Are you involved with one?

3662526 I used to be an event runner for SoCal Bronies in 2012-2013, though most of my crew moved on to organize Equestria LA, and it's been a few years since we've been to any meetups. I was thinking it might be better to organize it privately or over Fimfic.

Hey I would like to order one (for myself what's the price for one copy)

3663664
You can get PayPal quickly.
Or else get Google Wallet.

3663529
Please order in the order post - once you have your PayPal set up anyway.

3662567
Arrange something in Orange County or LA for the first week of February and you have a deal.

Will the books contain the sequel story as well? (If they don't, it might be a good idea to let readers know where to find it, in case one of them happens to have not read it before. It would be super cool of it were included, though.)

3667444
Sadly not, that would blow riiight past the page limit for the hardcover printing. I wish I could!

Maybe I'll post a reminder for it.

Oh, shoot! I thought I had more time to order! Sorry I missed it. :(

Sign me up for 1 copy please =)
