Earthling Publications

Last year I pre-ordered a fabulous book that I was looking forward to.  I went all shades of crazy and ordered an autographed, numbered edition.  It came in and I was more than pleased! 

A few weeks ago, due to a tragic incident, my book was incinerated.  I have all of my books insured, but some things just aren't replaceable. 

I contacted Earthling Publications and explained the situation and asked if there was any chance they knew where I could get my hands on a copy.  It didn't need to be a special edition.  Any copy of the book would be amazing. 

Paul from Earthling contacted me in less than 24 hours with a wonderful solution for replacing my book.  It's all been fixed and taken care of and it took me less than a few minutes.

I was a big fan of Earthling Pub before.  I think I even wrote a post about them a year or two ago.  They offer beautiful, quality books that you just can't get anywhere else.  Being a book collector isn't just about the quantity, but about the quality.  Earthling offers extraordinary books.  Now I see that not only is their product better, but so is their customer service. 

If you get a chance to do any business with Earthling, DO IT!  Whether you're an author, marketer, reviewer, or reader, you won't regret it.  These people ROCK!

Lucky Book 500!!

I've been working on cataloging the library as time and energy allows.  Let's be blunt...there's no such thing as enough shelving or enough space.  I have most of my shelves 2 or 3 rows full of books.  It's really difficult to remember off the top of my head what I have and what I don't.  I have a separate bookcase to keep 'incoming' books so that they don't get lost in the library, but if someone wants to borrow something to read...well, it's not easy!  My hope is that by cataloging them, people can tell me ahead of time what they're looking for and then I'll have time to run through and find it.  Of course, this is a temporary solution until I'm able to magically create more space to shelve books in my dream way. 

This has been a really interesting experience for me.  I've found quite a few books that I didn't know I had.  I rediscovered books that I love and had forgotten about.  I've discovered several books that don't actually 'exist' anymore.  I have the book, but according to the internet, it's no longer valid.  Since I've only been cataloging hard copies, physical books, I've gotten to hold each book lovingly in my hands and then re-shelve it. 

I'm only halfway through my second bookcase, but I'm super excited to realize that I'm about to catalog my 500th book!  That doesn't sound like a lot...but it's a milestone!  So I'm sharing it with you!  I have 499 books cataloged.  All I have to do is grab another stack and then see what the book on the top is and we'll know who the winning book is!  Ready?!  Me too!  I'm so excited!

Damaged by Marquitz and Long!  I loved this book!  I pre-ordered it so that I'd have it as soon as it was available.  It was a bloody good time!  Musicians sell they're souls to the devil in exchange for fame...but what happens when they want out???  If you enjoy horror, you should really check this one out.  I'm really glad that it happened to be my 500th book.  Thanks, Tims!!
