Sold out!

I ordered one of Lance Howard's books on the Hale website 9 Feb. The book was 'published' on 30 Jan. Some hours later, as predicted by Ray and others, I was notified that the book was sold out. Bad news for me - and the author. Yes, it's good news it was sold out, not so good to hear it won't be reprinted...
Still, that's a marvellous achievement to get your book sold out virtually before it is even published! Well done Howard!

Congratulations, Lance! It's pretty amazing that you sold out so quickly!

Well done. It will be bitter sweet to know that you have experienced such a response to your novel but you are unlikely to be told there will be another print run for you. I've been in that position with Hale, so I can empathise with you. But, well done again.

Thanks all for the kind words. I am hoping they will change their mind and reprint. But it's good to know the print runs should be going up

Well done Lance. I wondered what the print run was for Black Horse Westerns (if you don't mind me asking!)
