The Print Edition Of Frequently Asked Questions About Being Dead

I wasn't planning on putting out a print edition of Frequently Asked Questions About Being Dead, but I am sure glad that I did!  When I uploaded the Kindle edition to Amazon, I saw they had an option to work up a print counterpart.  I decided to try it as an experiment.  I knew that some of my readers still prefer print, so I wanted to have it as an option even if it wouldn't be as cheap as the ebook due to printing costs.  There were a couple of minor hurdles, but I got it uploaded.  I was a little concerned about how the printed book would look since the book wasn't designed with print in mind, but Amazon's print on demand service did a great job!  I just got my print copy today, and the book looks great!  I had thought about doing a print run, but what can be done with print on demand is amazing these days.  The books are quite akin to any trade paperback, and it's nice to know that there won't be any remainder copies floating around unloved in bookstores.  It's probably a little more environmentally sound to only get these books printed up when someone actually wants one.  You can check out the print edition here.
