"I had two things that people hardly ever have in their life: time and money," he said. "I decided I just needed to see more of the gay United States, so I set off on a trip. I started April 1, 1981."

Why Our Books' Cover Prices Are Going Up

This sucks. 

Our distributor is compelling us to adjust our wholesale pricing in a way that knocks most of our books out of profitability. This is not a change we welcome, and we have no say in the matter. We have to raise our prices, or our books lose their distribution. 

At the same time, despite our books’ cover prices going up, our per-book profits will actually be reduced. So we will actually earn less, even as our books cost our readers more

You read that right: We are being forced to raise our prices, yet somehow we’ll still earn less on each book sold. 

I think this is what they used to call “the new math.” 

This price increase will primarily affect readers who buy our books via Amazon. So if you’re a New Texture reader who prefers to buy from Amazon, the time to fill any gaps on your New Texture bookshelf is now; the cover prices on our books are about to go up.

Current prices should remain in effect until this time next month (October). After that, everything will cost a few dollars more, while we earn a few dollars less. You can order our books from Amazon by clicking their covers, running down the the right-hand column of this site.

As ever, thank you for your support.
