Another autographed book sale and plea for donations (now with a bonus!)

Hi, folks. Once again I’m in a financial pickle similar to the one from last year — I have a couple of new contracts on the way that should sustain me financially for most of 2019, but they’re taking longer than expected, and I’m practically broke at the moment, so I don’t know if I’ll have enough money to pay my bills for the month ahead. So I’m going to try another autographed book sale to raise funds. As always, you can buy the books by clicking on the PayPal “Donate” button on the right-hand side of this page.

Even if you don’t buy a book, I hope you’ll be willing to make a donation to help me over this hump. You guys were very generous to me with donations when I needed them last year, so this time I want to offer a bit of a reward in return (and, yes, an incentive). As with last time, everyone who makes a donation will be given a shout-out in the acknowledgments of the next novel I write, unless you ask to remain anonymous. (Last year’s donors are acknowledged in The Captain’s Oath, due out in May.) But anyone who donates $20 or more (or spends that much on books, not counting postage) will, if they so desire, be Tuckerized (i.e. have a minor character named after them, or possibly a spacecraft, institution, or the like) in the next novel I write! Don’t worry, I’ll do my best to avoid having your namesake character meet a horrible fate or be a horrible person — unless that’s what you ask for. 😉 You can convey your preferences through PayPal with your donation or book order.

Here’s the current list of what I have available (updated 3/24):

Mass-market paperbacks: $8

  • Star Trek: TOS — The Face of the Unknown (2 1 copies)
  • ST: Enterprise — Rise of the Federation: Tower of Babel (4 2 copies)
  • ST: ENT — Rise of the Federation: Uncertain Logic (5 3 copies)
  • ST: ENT — Rise of the Federation: Live by the Code (4 1 copy)
  • ST: ENT — Rise of the Federation: Patterns of Interference (7 6 copies)
  • ST:TNG: Greater Than the Sum (1 copy)
  • ST: Titan: Over a Torrent Sea (1 copy)

Hardcovers: $20 (20% off!)

  • Only Superhuman (21 19 copies)

Trade paperbacks: $16

  • Star Trek: Mirror Universe — Shards and Shadows (6 5 copies)
  • ST: Myriad Universes — Infinity’s Prism (2 1 copies)
  • ST: Mere Anarchy (2 1 copies)
  • ST: The Next Generation — The Sky’s the Limit (2 1 copies)

Trade paperbacks: $15

  • Among the Wild Cybers: Tales Beyond the Superhuman (2 1 copies)

Trade paperbacks: $14

  • ST: Deep Space Nine — Prophecy and Change (1 copy)
  • ST: Voyager — Distant Shores (1 copy)

 

I’ll try to keep this list updated with regard to availability, but if you have doubts (particularly with the single copies), query first. For buyers in the US, add $2.50 postage per book for MMPBs, or $4.00 postage for trades/hardcovers.  For buyers outside the US, pay the book price and I’ll bill you for postage separately once I determine the amount.

If you have a PayPal account of your own, please pay through that instead of a credit card.  PayPal charges a fee for credit card use, so if you do use a credit card, I have to ask for an additional $0.25 per mass-market paperback or an additional $0.50 per trade paperback or hardcover.
