Did I miss something or the shipping cost is not mentionned? What about international orders?

All shipping is excluded in the price. International shipping is available.

Thanks, but that doesnt tell me anything that I didnt guess so far :P

Sorry, I don't know the prices for international.

In all of the INCREDIBLE EXCITEMENT of this, EOTD Portfolio owners, don't forget this info included in the link:


Important: If you would like to match your number and/or letter, you must submit this form no later than 9PM Pacific on Friday, February 9th. You will receive a reply back with a private order link on Saturday, February 10th no later than 12PM Pacific to pre-order your matching number and/or letter.

This puts to an end the hand-wringing indecision I was having over PS Pub's THE TOMMYKNOCKERS...I can't afford both and vastly prefer this LE of MISERY for both content and production, so I can now gladly put that indecision to bed. I was hoping someday someone would do a limited of MISERY...this looks to be an absolutely incredible realization of that wish. Just need to decide which MISERY edition (Gift or #d) to opt for...so more hand-wringing for at least a few more days.

Wow. Congrats, Paul! How amazingly cool. Very happy for you and your press. Gotta have a numbered one of these! On that.. it sounds like most, if not all, of the 185 "available" will more than likely be already spoken for by owners (or brand new purchasers) of the EOTD Portfolio? Is that correct?

Why is no one talking about the penguin? I seriously want one of those! Along with a numbered edition :biggrin:

I hadn't previously gotten the EOTD portfolio only because I don't have the disposable income for everything. I had to opt out of Rebound because I couldn't swing IT. However, I REALLY want this. If I am reading everyone's comments correctly, if I buy EOTD I will get an early link for Misery? Or is this for people who have already bought it? I did go back and read the email carefully and it looks as if you can still purchase EOTD and get an early link but I need someone to 'splain please before I spend the extra $$
Thank you.


As I uderstand... people who bought numbers 1-185 od EOTD will be first to match their number... then MAYBE those with higher numbers - because EOTD portfolio was limited to 300.

I have no idea how much did sell
Ah, thank you. If someone told me that less than 185 EOTD's sold right now I would go buy one. I'm afraid there aren't going to be many numbered editions left after everyone matches. Rightfully so.

You have until tomorrow evening at 9PM PST to order a EOTD Portfolio. There are still numbers below 185 available. So you can get one and get Misery before that deadline. Hope this helps.

is it confirmed that numbers lower than 185 are available?

BTW shipping portfolio Europe is $110 :/

Haha, yeah, one of those good problems that doesn’t quite seem that way in the moment.

Best of luck Paul! You’re doing a killer job on everything. I agree with others that this looks like it’s going to be on par with productions like The Stand and Lettered Regulators.

Summited my request for a matching letter (possibly twice in my paranoia) :)

I’m also curious about how you acquired all those old typewriter keys.

ok... so everyone who has Eotd portfolio is eligible for an early preorder but only those with numbers lower than185 have a chance to match.

ok... that changes it all... a bit.
because if eotd sold more that 185 (and now i'm sure it did) it will still be a race to order during secret auction

I definitely won't be sorry. I gave it some thought after posting and I think the reason is that, as far as signed/limited editions go, I've always been drawn to the 'classics' and the more understated limiteds. I have zero interest in any of the limited editions that were issued after I started collecting and became aware of the concept of high-end books (circa 2006). This is the first limited edition that I will be able to buy at issue price and that actually triggers my collector senses.

I have a few days left to ponder and decide.. :smile:

It's on the Misery private link form. To me, it looks as if you have a number under 185 there shouldn't be a scramble because you will get an order link to match your number. At least I hope that I am correct in this assumption. He offered portfolios numbered under 185 between today and tomorrow and once those numbers are gone I believe it will be marked as sold. That's what I understand from becca's explanation.

Its on the page with the form to request a matching number. I am a little confused by this. So it seems that we aren't actually getting a matching number, just that we are guaranteed an order. Also, is there some kind of verification that the person is the actual owner? Seems open to abuse/liers.

There will be no way to know for sure until Saturday - that's when everyone who has a numbered EoTD has to confirm their pre-order of Misery. Any remaining copies then go on public sale on Monday.

It seems safe to assume that a number people with numbers 1-185 may not spring for Misery, how many is anyone's guess...

There may still be some numbered copies available on Monday because not everyone who bought the numbered portfolio last year may step up.

I disagree. Look at how fast Paul's stuff over at Dragon Rebound sell. I am assuming given the price of the s\l and the fact that this is the first s\l novel from Suntup that everyone who got the EOTD portfolio will buy this book. Oh well. No complaining about something you can't control. But it doesn't mean I still won't look on Monday.

EOTD Portfolio officially sold out under 185

Really shocking it took this long to sell that many copies. This is a fantastic portfolio. Probably the best portfolio I have ever seen. (not that I've seen a lot, less then 10).

I took mine out today to confirm the letter and ended up looking through it for a half hour. I also haven’t seen that many, but this is definitely my favorite by far.

Based on nothing, I feel like 185 is a large enough sample that at least one person is going to opt out. I agree it’ll probably be a very small number though.

Also, the price tag of the Lettered is high enough compared to the portfolio that at least one person might opt out.

I am just now getting my head above water. Been responding to emails, texts, phone calls, Facebook messages, smoke signals and semaphores all day! Since 6am. I skipped lunch, as I didn't even realize it was lunch time. Went out to get a bite to eat, which was closer to dinner than lunch, and then got back at it...

Anyway, wow... I have been completely bombarded today after the news went public, and it still hasn't stopped!

I apologize in advance for any breakups or divorces caused as a result of these new editions!

Seriously though, thank you EVERYONE for your very kind words and compliments. I truly appreciate each and every one of you. I have given my life to this book for the past year, and to see what everyone is saying, both here and on social media, well it is very gratifying to say the least. The excitement and pleasure this has brought to the Stephen King community is a big reason for why I am doing this. It is truly a dream come true. I have so many stories to tell of this journey!

I hope that everyone got their questions answered. Rebecca was a complete rockstar in responding to everyone. I have only just now been able to focus on this thread. Thank you again Rebecca.

Anyway, enough speeches... I am going to get back to work. Oh, and keeping this a secret for so long was excruciating!

Paul, out of curiosity, when it says ‘there are no “PC” copies of the lettered edition available,’ does that mean that no copies outside of A-Z will be produced (aka, literally only 26 will be made) or that there will be extra copies produced, but they won’t be for sale?

I would have thought there would be extra copies made, just in case any get lost or damaged in transit.

I know a few people who work for publishers and they usually get paid in PC edition books as a stipend. My guess is it means that no employee is receiving a PC lettered edition to sell to make up some salary. He will probably make 1 or 2 for replacements if needed but they should not hit the open market.

Someone asked about how the numbering will be done, printed or hand numbered. The limited edition will be numbered by hand, and the lettered will not be lettered by hand, neither will the letters be printed. They will be lettered in a very different way.

I agree with Richard X, this was brilliant marketing and I am so happy that it worked out this way. I was sad when I had to cancel my rebounds and I don't really collect portfolios so I hadn't purchased anything from Suntup yet but not for lack of wanting to be supportive. This deal "forced my hand" so to speak and I'm glad it gave me the shove that I needed. I know the EOTD portfolio will be beautiful, and Misery? I can't even begin to describe my excitement for this book. ( and the penguin that I still want! :evil: )

I also can't wait to hear the stories behind this project.

Paul, I’m ordering the numbered and lettered, but would also like a gift edition, will there be a way to preorder all 3 through the email or will the gift edition only be available to everyone on Monday?

All will be explained in the email. Full instructions.

There will be PC copies and they are assigned to people working closely on the project including the author and artists.

Someone asked about how the numbering will be done, printed or hand numbered. The limited edition will be numbered by hand, and the lettered will not be lettered by hand, neither will the letters be printed. They will be lettered in a very different way.

Becca, will they be designated PC with 2 inset Royal keys? Or in another manner? Just curious:)

They will be designated in another manner, but there will be a key inset into the back cover of the PCs as well.

Mmmmm, intriguing, which key will it be....?:)

One of these.

What a GREAT guy!
I could have stayed much longer but the guy is extremely busy of course.
Misery will be a great production. I am sure of it.
He is a wealth of knowledge on King items.

I did the payment plan and also only had the option for credit card and bank. I’m guessing it’s based on whatever the company managing the payments plan accepts, which is different from the company that normally processes, but obviously just a guess.

But congrats to those who got them. I am assuming, maybe incorrectly, that on the order page, if something were sold out, the button would say "sold out". We shall see.

I haven't bought a signed edition in probably three years. They've for the most part looked like regular books instead of what -- to me at least -- a limited edition should look like. Think Charnel House, Centipede, older Subterranean lettereds. I actually sold one of my guitars to pay for Misery, a beautiful white 97 Gibson Les Paul with an ebony fretboard.

It turns out I'll be taking a client of mine to the hospital for a check up. This means no internet access as the signal is blocked unless you're in the main lobby. I am to accompany her at all times because she has a disability and cannot be left alone.

So, this is bittersweet. I'm happy someone's publishing a limited edition that actually looks like one. I'm also a bit jelaous I won't be getting a shot at one. A gift edition will have to do.

Now that I have secured the letter"N" & am only collecting King & say the next lettered book you print is by Joe Blow.... but the 3rd will be another King book.How do I go about passing on the Joe Blow book & keep the letter "N" for the King book & because I did not double dip on the Dragon portfolio I will have to line up Monday hoping to snag a numbered edition & if I do can I hold that # for just the numbered King books?

I wonder what's going to be left for the official Monday launch... I think the Lettereds are all spoken for pre-sale (and at least most from the DT community, which is wonderful), and (at least) almost half of the S/L's gone.

Purchase a Silver level Lifetime Membership to guarantee your Letter for life, and simply sell the books you don't wish to keep, whilst maintaining ownership of your designated 'Letter'.

Exactly. You would still continue to receive books for the life of the press. You can then do with them as you please but the rights remain with you.

Well if you want to keep ownership of your 'Letter'..... :shrug:

You could always leave it to me in your will. :P

Monday sure feels like a long way away right now.
The uncertainty is excrutiating.

Paul - What time will the remaining copies go on sale on Monday?

Brian, 8am Pacific. Be ready!


I missed out on the free extras. Maybe Paul will still include them for his Dragon Rebound legacy customers. :orely:

Maybe!

So at 10am CST, I have to dial in to a work meeting, purchase Ed Sheeran tickets, and try to buy the S/L. Challenging but doable!!
