It's hard to get the dustjacket to sit firmly into the crease of the top of the Brodart on both sides, you tuck one edge in and the other inevitably pops out a smidge. I know I'm being picky, but I do find it actively frustrating.

    I'm also noticing that sometimes there's...a tension on the brodart sleeve after wrapping? The dust jacket isn't curling or warped, but the Brodart itself seems like it's sometimes a bit...off? Hard to explain without photos.
    There shouldn't be any white visible at all. I get it as snug as I can on the top, turn it over, and fold and crease the bottom over first. Then I flip it back over to the top, snug it up again, and crease it on the top.
    No, there shouldn't be any white at the top. Place the dustjacket fully into the top edge of the cover. If you do so, there will be no white showing there. When I pull the cover up to create the bottom fold, I pull with both hands upward and create enough tension that the dustjacket just starts to curl up. I then hold that with one hand at the center. I use the bone folder from the center to each edge to crease the cover.

    So a tight tuck, a slight curl and a hard crease is all it takes.
    It's the end of the world as we know it.
    And I feel fine.

    Default Quietly Now - diff editions

    Hi,

    This was the first sl I ever bought (from Calla Wolf) and in my browsing of all things King have seen, numbered edition and lettered edition.

    I recently viewed a pic of a pc copy.

    But I have also come across a different edition, that seems to be signed by all contributors, but instead of the ‘ this is the numbered edition, number 1 of 500, it states

    ‘This first edition of Quietly Now has been bound and printed for Melissa Singer’

    Does anyone know of this type of copy, and if so, where does it sit in terms of rarity/value in comparison to the lettered and numbered versions?

    I may look at buying one of these depending on thoughts.

    Thanks.

    Sounds like a personal custom bound book.

    Maybe, the image shows the same signature sheet as the numbered version, and the writing is in the same font.

    This is it. I emailed borderland press for more info but not had a reply as yet.

    Note the pencilled number at the top right.

    Interesting item. I guess only Borderlands Press, or Melissa Singer can clarify.

    Melissa Ann Singer has a twitter account. Appears has been an editor :

    Tor/Forge

    My Manuscript Wish List Favorite
    I often refer to myself as an “editor of all work,” meaning that I edit many genres, from horror and urban fantasy to mystery and thriller, to contemporary and commercial historical fiction.

    My tastes are broad within genre as well; for instance, in horror, I edited Brian Lumley’s visceral Necroscope series as well as Ramsey Campbell’s emotionally intense The Darkest Part of the Woods. Works on my list feature sympathetic vampires, like Chelsea Quinn Yarbro’s legendary Saint-Germain, as well as blood-sucking menaces like those in Cat Adams’s Blood Singer novels. For me, horror and urban fantasy are closely related and I’m always looking for exciting, frightening, and unsettling books. In horror and UF, I’m also looking for a variety of settings and time-periods.

    In thriller, my weakness is disaster stories. Too many Irwin Allen disaster movies in my youth, I guess. The disaster can be man-made or natural: floods, fires, deadly diseases, sinking ships, plane crashes, technology run amok, etc. I like disaster-in-motion as well as stories of investigations into causes and general villainy.

    In mystery and suspense, I like procedurals a lot. Family suspense is good too, as are intelligent gothics. Female protagonists are a plus but not a requirement.

    As for women’s fiction, I’m looking for works with older protagonists (anywhere from 35 up); stories of long-range relationships, of self-discovery (which can happen at any age), of coping with what life throws at you and thriving. I’m also interested in stories of people in their late teens and early twenties, who are figuring out what’s next after high school and starting to live in the wider world, whether they are in college or not. In terms of historical fiction, almost any period is fair game, and I’m also looking for non-Western cultures. I’m interested in contemporary immigration stories as well as historical ones and novels about POC in 20th and 21st century America. Caveat: if a work is set in a popular time period, like WWII or the Ellis Island immigration period, I will expect it to be something different or told from an unusual point of view.

    I’d love to see more novels that reflect the present and past diversity of the world. Life is full of fascinating stories—as one of those native New Yorkers who loves striking up conversations with total strangers, I hear them all the time. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve thought, “that would make a great book!” That’s what I look for most in submissions—a story more people should know, characters more people should meet.

    I'm guessing it's a Association/Publisher's copy but they might have had the names printed instead of a generic PC line.

    As far as I have found out, this is an association copy. Sometimes, people who worked on the S/L at the publisher will receive these personalized editions. Technically that makes it a 1/1 and thus "extremely limited" seeing as it's the only one of its kind. But the general consensus seems to be that they are valued like PC copies. If you're into that sort of thing, then it can be a really cool piece. But most collectors don't seem to want much to do with them. Again, this is just what I've heard from other groups.

    Thanks, I contacted the seller I thought was associated to the pic, and they cannot find it. I quite like the thought of this type of version. Imagine a signed with all those names and your name printed at the bottom. Wow.

    I would have had to change my name to Melissa though!! Lol
