I plan to get 500 copies of my book printed.
However, what if this paperback becomes wildly popular? Suppose I get 5000 orders the first day of release? The book printer has a 6-week lag on printing orders. By that time I would be awash in cancelations, few members of the Now Generation could possibly wait that long.
What to do.
I don’t want to release the 99-cent Kindle version until after the paperback has been available for a couple of weeks.
