Anthology Builder

Too interesting an idea not to post on. Anthology Builder allows you to pick and choose a selection of short stories, which will then be printed in a professional, custom paperback book. (It looks as though hardcovers are not available at this time.) There is a 350 page limit for each book, but the font size can be reduced to fit more, if your eyes can handle it.

I put a collection together to look through the site's features. This was the result for a 294 page softcover book.

Anthology Cost: $14.95
Cost of Shipping: $4.63
Featured Writer Discount:
- $1.00
Total Cost: $18.58

My Good Experience with Best Buy: Update 3

I received my gift card from "Best Buy" in the mail today. My $75.00 gift card.

At the outset of this issue, I never planed to darken the doorway of any of their stores again. Now, however, I am quite satisfied with their method of resolution for this problem. True, I didn't have my camera for longer than I would have liked, but a seventy-five dollar bribe* to forget about it seems sufficient from my point of view.

If you don't know why "Best Buy" is sending me large sums of money, you may want to start at the beginning of this tale, or read the first update, or even the second update.

*If you don't like the term bribe, please pretend that I wrote graft. Err, I mean gift.
