1) Go to this page in the catalog: http://www.sofawolf.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=127
2) Click the "Add to Cart" button. You can ONLY check out the pre-order all by itself. If you want to order other items (and we hope you do) you will need to do that separately.
3) When you go to check out, you will be offered two shipping options -- one free (pickup at Further Confusion) and one not. Make sure you choose the appropriate option.
a) Pickup at Further Confusion in San Jose, CA on January 14-16, 2011. If you choose this option, make sure the order is either in your name or that you put a name in the comments field so that we can reconcile the pickup list at the convention.
b) Ship via USPS Priority to your specified shipping address. The hardcovers will ship the week of January 10th.
4) Finish checking out and you are all set. If you want to pay via PayPal, just choose "Check/Money Order" and send us an e-mail and we'll work out the payment information.
We'll accept pre-orders from now until December 15th, or until we run out of them. I don't expect that to be the case, but it's the first time we've tried a hardcover release, so I have no idea how to judge demand. If you really want one, I wouldn't wait...
What you will get is a 450 page cloth-bound hardcover with foil stamped title on the spine and a full color glossy dust-jacket cover. All pre-ordered copies will be individually numbered and signed, and everyone who buys one will get a nifty Chevali Firebirds cloissone pin (shipped along with the book or for pickup at the convention).
I think that is about it... Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
P.S. - We WILL be releasing a Hardcover Edition of Out of Position as well, probably sometime in Spring. We want to pull together a little extra material for that, and need to modify the layouts and cover design and such still. It will be the same size (dimension-wise) as the Isolation Play hardcover, so they will go nicely together on your bookshelf.
