'Military Interference' books have been printed

The first run of Military Interference was printed yesterday, and should ship today or tomorrow. Between shipping delays and multiple holidays, I'm still expecting to fulfill the preorders in early to mid-January.

Several people have asked me about the best way to buy the book. At this point, most of the first run has already been preordered via I'm down to 3 paperbacks and 1 hardcover. There will be a second run, but I'm not sure how long it will take to print. However, on January 1st, the book will go on sale on sites like and Copies ordered from online retailers will come directly from the printer/distributor, and might arrive a little sooner. Out of all of the online retailers, I recommend Bookshop, which is friendly to local bookstores. They have an interesting business model which you can read about on their site.

It's doubtful that you'll find this book in a local bookstore, because I wasn't able to offer an industry-standard discount for booksellers without jacking the list price even higher. The online retailers don't care, because they don't have to stock copies, but a brick-and-mortar store is going to be very reluctant to invest in books that they'll hardly make anything on. I think they'd make a couple of dollars on a hardcover, and a couple more on a paperback. So that's probably not going to happen, just because of the size of this book (484 pages) and the cost to print it.

Thanks again to those who submitted preorders. Your books physically exist!
