Dear Mr. Covington:
Please tell me how much to send you for a copy of your newest book, The Brigade. I just finished reading your Northwest Trilogy- The Hill of the Ravens, A Mighty Fortress, and A Distant Thunder. I enjoyed them and I look forward to more.

Dear Mr. H:
The Brigade is longer than any of the Trilogy books, 355,000 words and 736 pages to be precise. It's $23.99 retail and with shipping costs here and then to you, oh, let's make it an even $30.00.
You're fortunate in that you caught me with a couple in stock. If you want to e-mail me your address, I can go ahead and send you the book. Whenever is convenient for you, you can drop me thirty. I am actually not worried so much about money at the moment, although my friends all rant and rave at me that I should be. But in my mind the main thing is to get this book into circulation.
Or if you don't want to wait and you don't mind reading a long book on a computer, or printing off a very long manuscript on your printer, you can download it for free at
