    Publishing lead time

    If a publisher were interested in having a hard cover book out in time for 2017 black Friday shopping, and if they expected the initial order to sell 2+ million copies, how long in advance of black Friday would they need the book in a finished electronic format?

    TY for the replies. I will probably bail out on the book series. There's only so many times Lucy can pull the football off the tee for me. I'm looking forward to HBO finishing the story for me albeit at a reduced quality.

    Space. It seems to go on and on forever. But then you get to the end and a gorilla starts throwing barrels at you. -PJF

    Promise me Ned, spell color without the "u" to see if it catches on.
  5. If I ever get my job back at the keyboard assembly plant I will put in more shifts.

    Talk of other others reminds me of Lost. All previous posters, by the way, just lost

    Promise me Ned, be at my house between 1:00AM and 11:00PM for the next 20 days so that the CATV installer can connect the cable at the street. Even though he does not need any access to the house someone has to be there so he can "install".

    It's spelled Thai with a capital T, by the way. And I don't think she speaks Thai. If you were referring to the food then maybe she would like it if you don't make it too bland or too spicy. What am I supposed to watch while there is no GoT and TWD hasn't resumed yet?

    I don't. I trained my cat to do it for me. If there were a sequel to Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, who would play Mr. Darcy?

    The high maesters knew all along that magic is very real. They teach that magic is BS just to discourage its use. They want people to eschew magic because the excessive use of magic brought doom to Valeria. Maesters feared that other lands could be ruined if magic were not curtailed. With the coming of the comet, the birth of dragons, and the return of magic, their primary plan is thwarted. Now they are conspiring to mass produce a pattern slip dress and a small black purse that goes with everything. Marketing high fashions at affordable prices will allow the masses to become visually indistinguishable from the nobility. Their ultimate goal is egalitarian. They only lack a high heeled shoe that does not cram toes into a painful point. When did things get so pricy?

    Start general and then end your introduction with your thesis statement. Then support your thesis with arguments backed by evidence. Avoid pathos. Use ethos and bathos. I need to move things that are heavy and generally too big to fit through doors easily. Help me Obi-Wan Stark. You're my only hope...

    Margaery Tyrell was a lovely piece. Winner! Will Margaery be happy to learn that I am her prize?

    Promise me Ned, don't tell anyone why Benjen had to take the black. Not everyone is as understanding of incest as the Targarians are.

    Would you rather?

    I would rather not arrest anyone with 1 foot thick plot armor. So I would let Tyrion go and suffer any backlash. I would also probably underestimate the backlash because I would think the Lannisters would largely ignore any grievance made by Tyrion because everyone sees him as a joke at this point. Well everyone except Jaime, that is. WYR spend a week in a sky cell at the Eyrie or cross the narrow sea in a box?

    His name was given during the implied backstory. Aegon the unlikely was installed as ruler by what could be described as a parliamentary or even republican process and yet his reforms were designed to empower the common folk at the expense of the very same nobility that put him on the iron throne. Given that he was, in a very real sense, working against the establishment, do you think his hatching scheme was sabotaged and could it have succeeded if not for the saboteurs?

    He uses a flat map, chips, icons, and small representative statuary. Why does Emma Caulfield not return my emails?

    Ever receive a trouser-friendly kiss from a woman who has deviously secreted an ice cube on her tongue? When will the oleanders bloom?
