Signed copy of Breaking Gravity


A while back, I purchased 100 paperback copies of my book so I could do signings at a local event. On the day of the signing, I was ill. Or maybe I chickened out. Regardless, I have gobs of copies. If you’d like one, I’d be happy to sign and send one to you.


A copy of the book Breaking Gravity, signed and dated by the author—yours truly, Mitty Walters.

That’s right…
For the low, low price of just $50, I’ll will happily ruin a copy of my book for you by writing in it. I may even doodle on it or add some silly comment in an effort to be profound.

And—as a special ¡BONUS!—I will even date the signature so that you can prove you were here from the beginning, that you heard of me first! And then when my next books go on to sell billions of copies and get turned into major motion pictures, you can stick your copy up on eBay and sell for a zillion bucks.

In all seriousness, this is a limited run, something I’m doing simply because I happen to have copies and I’m trying to raise money.

The cost to produce one book will be $2,500 and I’ve already tucked away $2,000. All I have to do is sell ten signed copies $50 each and I will have enough to cover my next book.

Thank you for your support,
Mitty Walters

To be clear, I am asking how you would like the book inscribed. For instance, “For Elizabeth” or “For Jimmy”.

If you would like for me to address the book to someone in particular (to yourself or someone else), please insert that person’s name into the box labeled “Who shall I address the book to?”. I will hand write the name in the book exactly as you type it, so please double check your spelling.

Also, if you are buying more than one copy, please ADD TO CART one at a time. That way you will be able to specify a different name for each copy.

If you do not want me to address the book to anyone, simply type: NOBODY. I will still sign and date the book.

Because I am an “indie” author. 

A while back, I received an offer for Breaking Gravity from a very large publisher. Setting aside the fact that their offer wasn’t exactly spectacular, the main reason I turned them away was that writing is what I do for fun. If I accepted their money, then writing becomes work.

I ended up thanking them respectfully and turning them away politely.

The fact that a real publisher might be interested in my work was quite shocking to me. I decided maybe I should take this story telling thing a bit more seriously, so I started writing again. 

I’m currently in the process of wrapping up two new novels. I expect to have at least one, if not both, ready to hand over to my editor by the end of this summer (2018).

And now I’m having regrets. Turning my back on the conventional route means that all the publishing costs fall on me. Again.

I’ve decided to not to put out the audiobook versions right away, but I will still have to come up with about $5,000 ($2,500 each) before my new novels can be published. The majority of that will go to editing (I’m hoping to go with David Gatewood again), and the remainder will cover production costs (book cover, files for print and ebook version, etc), plus a zillion other little details (listing fees, ISBN fees, etc).

I’ve already squirreled away $2k, so I’m looking to raise another $3k.

Hence the yard sale.

And the “Shop at Amazon” thing. If you click on that link—or any Amazon link on my site—my Amazon Affiliate tag will travel with you. I will earn a little commission on anything you add to your shopping cart after that. It doesn’t change the price or effect you in anyway, just sends a few pennies my way on anything you buy. Might not sound like much, but every penny counts!

Sadly, I don’t have much to offer. I mean, what kind of nut spends $50 on a copy of a book nobody has ever read, signed by some an author nobody has ever heard of?

But as I said above, the cost to publish one novel is $2,500. Since I’ve already tucked away $2,000. So all I need is another $500 and the first of my two books is covered. 

To do that, all I have to do is sell ten signed copies at $50 each.

This sales pitch was inspired by Cake:

“…and how much did you pay for your rock and roll t-shirt that proves you were there, that you heard of them first?”
