email maybe of interest

Email rec'd:

Hi Chris,

I haven’t been checking an old Yahoo mailbox for sometime, and I see I’ve been missing your updates.

my reply:
Good to hear from you. I've stopped sending mass emails, so I'm sure you haven't missed anything. Even though I only sent to people who asked to be on the list, it still felt like spamming when I hit the send button -- probably about the same rate of response too.

discount plan

Email sent that might be of interest to some others:
I've simplified the discount plan: it's 20% off on new small press and 30% on mass-market publishers. New books -- as in recent -- I don't get in much of any more, especially mass-market, but all the items still listed "new" in my listings are susceptible to discount -- with a possible exception or two, like Tartarus (15%). Used or "as new" books are 10% off.
