When I tell you guys to buy-buy-BUY my books as soon as they come out (or before, pre-orders are like karmic gold, I tell ya), I'm not kidding. Take a look at this eBay auction for a first-edition of the 2007 version of ANCESTOR, back when it was published by Dragon Moon Press. Home-slice wants $200 for this sucker, and you know what? He'll get it. It's the going rate.
So pre-order early, pre-order often. If you think $200 for an old small-press paperback of ANCESTOR is crazy, wait three years to see what hardcover ROOKIEs and STARTERs are going for. I predict $500 for first-printing, at least, and that's if you can find them.
Remember, the ANCESTOR hardcover is $24.99. On Amazon pre-order? Just $16.99. Buy one for you, one for a friend. If you don't have any friends, this will solve that problem.
