The Origen book – a text and translation of his works on Ezekiel, including masses of catena material – is complete! This afternoon, after a mighty struggle with the crummy online interface that Lightning Source Inc provide their hapless customers, I managed to upload the files and order the full proofs, complete with covers and dust-jackets. Yay!
Less pleasing was my opinion of the following screen, displayed by their system, which showed what percentage of the cover price I would receive, after allowing Amazon (etc) 20%, and deducting LSI’s own fees to manufacture the book.
Yes, that’s right: of a $45 cover price I get $25. It doesn’t pay, this game.
Never mind. We’ll sell a few copies of the thing, and then get it online. But it should look very impressive in printed form. Really I think it will!
