|It took us fifteen hours to sell 1,000 copies of THE MVP. Fifteen is not a lot of hours:
Do they ever say “the fourth time’s the charm?” If not, I might start saying that myself; try and make it a thing. Scott and I have been very happy with our year-over-year performance, but I won’t lie: it is some kind of wonderful to be able to move 1,000 copies of a premium-priced, plushed-out hardcover in less than one day.
As always, this is only possible due to the dedication and tenacity of the exceptional people willing to walk this road with us. We are humbled by how extensively #junkiesfuckingrock, and we continue to strive for perfection because it’s the best way to honor the commitment you guys make to our dreams.
I am immeasurably proud to be part of bringing Quentin’s continuing quest out of Scott’s mind and into our reality, and it warms my tiny black heart to see that so many people are excited about it too.
If you are looking for exact numbers, they won’t be forthcoming. I’m a girl who takes managing expectations seriously, and there’s simply no good way to do both things.
If you are wondering how many books we’re printing, the answer is we don’t yet know. It’ll be between 2,000 and 3,000, and where it falls depends on how many books are pre-sold between now and July 1st, when we have to give the printer our final details and finished files.
If you are wondering if THE MVP is worth the wait … oh hells yes it is. I promise.
