I'm in for a copy.

For numbering, I think you should pick a handful of people (people who have taught you and/or helped you along the way) and reserve 5 or 10 for them (EDIT - and maybe put a personal note to them) and let the rest just work itself out.

I'll consider it Chilli, thank you.

Like Santa, I'm making a list of everyone who has indicated a desire for a copy of
my hard cover book. I'm very appreciative of the enthusiasm you all have shown.
It won't be long now and I will be in a position to provide greater details of the forthcoming sale.

Thank you very much,

Tom

Hey everyone! The response has been well over the 50 copy limit I suggested and in less than a day. I'm thinking of pushing the cutoff to 100 copies. Just a thought. Any more than that will begin to defeat the purpose so no worries, I wouldn't go past that limit no matter what. I'm getting quotes now.
I'm also running into an issue where several people wish to purchase multiple copies and I would very much like to accommodate them but for every person who orders a second copy that's one other person who will be denied. I think the best way to handle this issue is to limit for the first two weeks one to a customer and then open it up to repeat buyers after that time frame expires.
Feedback wanted...

Tom

Good plan.

It was six years ago in May that I first published and began selling my book, "One Pocket: A Game Of Controlled Aggression".
It has turned out to be a far greater success than I ever could have imagined and I have all of you to thank for it.
Nearly 2,000 copies have been sold. Not bad for a book so specialized in this field of interest.

I received a great number of "up" votes for this spiral bound version but I've also received
quite a number of requests to offer the book in a hard cover version.
So, now might be the time to consider this idea more seriously,
My idea is to offer a signed, limited edition, collector's hard copy, bound in faux leather, full color pages, and with a dust cover.
50 copies in all. No second editions. One time only. Never to be repeated in any format.


So, Cutting to the chase

1. Before I order these book from the printer I would like to know who of you might wish to purchase
one of these rare volumes? Price still to be determined but I'll be fair.

2. To be fair, how best to number each book so everyone has a fair chance to get the most sought after numbers?
I'm thinking some kind of lottery system.

3. These books will not be offered through any other source than myself and advertising will be done here on
One Pocket.org, My facebook page, AZB, and on my You tube channel. That's it!

4 Once I see there is enough enthusiasm for these books I will then begin accepting pre orders.

5. I'm willing to entertain serious ideas from anyone on how to improve this plan.

Cheers,

Tom Wirth
I’m in! I’ll definitely buy a hard cover version if you decide to do it. 👍

I think anyone with the screen name book collector , should get number 1 automatically.
Anybody that doesn't agree can kiss Lou's butt.
Personally I think they should go in the order of how long Tom-Tom has known the person. :cool:

Hell, I knew him back when he was sporting an Afro.

I have been forming a list of everyone who has expressed an interest in purchasing a Hard copy version of
"Controlled Aggression"
I won't forget any of you and each of you will have priority over anyone not on the preorder list.
This list includes folks from Onepocket.org, AZB, and Facebook, These are the only locations I have announced my intentions.
If you see a "like" by me on your post then you know you have been added to the list.
The list is constantly growing so if you wish a copy I would suggest you get on the list before I reach the 100 mark.
If you're late to the party I will add you to the alternate list.
Thank you,
Tom

All but 12 spots are left in the main list for those of you who have expressed
a desire to purchase a hard cover copy of "Controlled Aggression". Once
these 12 spots are filled I will still take names and put them on the alternate list.
