The Creepy Butterfly

Headed to the post office to drop off a batch of issues.  Through the assistance of Christian and my main man at post office I discovered 2oz seems to be the gold weight to be under.  The Manor at 24 pages with cover and envelope weigh in at 1.7oz.  This allows me to ship to the 'all over the place' without having to fill out customs papers.  In the US its 65 cents.  I bought these cool stamps.  Creepy butterfly stamps.  I never knew they had 65 cent stamps.  I'm glad they do and I'm glad they are creepy.  They remind me of the mothman.  Sending The Manor out to the rest of the world is a little under two bucks give or take a cent.  I don't know what it costs to ship to Canada yet because none of them have order one *looking north and giving it the stink eye*.

This whole thing has been a great learning experience.  For me and Ivy.  I think helping me last night got her to thinking about doing a self-published cookbook.

I see The Manor is already #12 on RPGNow which is always great to see.  I have no idea how they figure that out.  For some reason I don't think it's based on number of sales, but how much money was made.

Anyway, I'm in need to get to the office of the post.  To those who ordered a print copy, keep en eye out for the creepy butterfly.


  1. Damn PayPal is acting retarded and I have not been able to load fund for over a week now. I will order one as soon as those jerks get around to fixing my account!

    Congrats on the #12!

  2. No worries Matt. I had a similar problem with Paypal about two years ago. A copy of the Manor will be here for ya.

  3. Finessing the post office is a pain. In the past I have had workers sweat me over the envelope size. I use greeting card envelopes to avoid the large envelope fee and for some reason that gets the occasional clerk's tighty whities in a bunch.

    Keep on keeping' on,

  4. Matt, it will be worth the wait.

    The Manor is currently #4 at RPGNow btw.
