where do you pre order?

It's not possible to set up preorders through the service I'm using.   You can preorder through me if you really want to though.  If you order from any online vendors, the book is going to be $12.99 plus whatever they charge for shipping.  I was planning to offer the book to forum members for a total of $10.00 which would include the shipping.  This way I can include a PLA sticker with your book and even sign it if you want me to.  So if anyone wants to preorder from me, PayPal $10 to rbcp at phonelosers.org.  You're likely to get your book a day or two earlier than when it's available to everyone else.  I promise not to be a flake and forget to send it.

The cover is nice but I would've thought that for a project of such high quality and caliber as this one that you would've cleaned the finger prints off of the phone first.

I wanted a pay phone in its natural state.  If I wanted a shiny, clean pay phone, I could have photographed the one hanging in my dining room.  I even photoshopped scratches all over the "adventures in" ad on the left side so it would match the state of the phone better.  I'd prefer a picture with soda cups and other garbage inside the pay phone stand, but then all the text would be too small.

no.. i think it is better with the phone in its natural state.. it is not a professional telecommunications information manual, if it was something like that, then i would expect the phone to be brand new/shiny...

i would think that a photo of a payphone like the one that i attached would make an awesome cover as well

I wish I could've written something for the book.

Like how I got pregnant from a payphone after misunderstanding the instructions for making a collect call.

You know the drill.

I set up a preorder button at http://www.phonelosers.org/store/

Yesterday I went to the post office to take some more pictures of that same pay phone for the cover and it was gone.  Just a week after I photographed it, they took the stand and everything.  It sucks because there's only one other outdoor Qwest pay phone like that in this city.  The number of pay phones in this city has been cut in half over the past 2 years.  Pay phones are so doomed!

Same price ($3) works for me.  Hopefully it's not too much more to ship it.

Will there be a PDF version?
The only acceptable form of commerce is a proper and shady cash-only weapons deal.

I didn't dial the wrong number, you picked up the wrong phone.

Not at first, unless someone scans the entire book in and turns it into a PDF.  I'm hoping to put off piracy for as long as possible, but it will be available as an ebook on all the major readers and I'm sure there's an easy way to convert those to PDFs.

hey, check out this email i got!

Quote
Compliments,

How are you doing? Hope you have not forgotten me at your past efforts and attempt to assist me in transferring those funds.

I and my new partner agreed to compensate you with a reasonable amount for all your past efforts and attempt to assist me.

I appreciate your efforts at that time, feel free to get in touch with my secretary (Mr. Michael Tinubu) and instruct him on how to send the package to you. Please do let me know immediately you receive the Bank Draft so that we can both share the joy together after all the hard work at that time.

I am unfortunately not around because of investment projects which I and my new partner are having at hand.

Below is the email address of my secretary:

E-mail: mt.private4@gmail.com

With Best Regards,

Dr. Antonio Cedenese.
