"More novels that are out of stock%3"


          

This id for Paul..
Are they ever going to re-stock any of the hard covers that are currently 'out of stock'?

Sadly, probably not. The morphology of books these days seems to have moved on from . . .

First - Hardcover for a year
Then - Paperback

TO

First E-book FOREVER
and Hardcover - for maybe a year
Then Paperback - for as long as sales sustain it.

The hardcovers go until they sell out the first and maybe the second printing and unless that happens extremely rapidly, they never look back.

NOW, That is not to say that some special books don't get reprinted in hardcover but it is not the norm these days. Books like FRONTIER, SMOKE FROM THIS ALTAR, A TRAIL OF MEMORIES and EDUCATION OF A WANDERING MAN to name a few from Louis.

Thank you for that info. Increasingly hard to find hard covers, outside large print editions....

Wild idea…Don’t have a clue if it’s possible or safe from hacking, but what is the possibility of publishing a LL book on line with access at the web-site through a sort of on line library…with a monthly or yearly fee and accessible with a login and password.

We sort of did that with the first incarnation of the Lost Treasures project. It was just sort of "meh" response-wise then and now would probably be terrible. No one wants to leave social media and go to a web site unless they have to.
