'Tis the Season For ... Baseball?

If you like baseball cards, you should check out that section (here) of my eBay store.  For some reason baseball cards have been selling better now that the season is over.  I'm always listing new ones, too, and they are usually auction items.  If you are looking for anything special, please contact me here and I'll see what I can dig up.

Christmas in the Vault

If any of you are looking for last minute gift ideas, or just looking to blow some of that holiday cash grandma sent you, look no further than my own Earth A.D. Auction Vault.  I've got scads of rare music, movies, books, sports cards, video games and more.  Most of the stuff is a flat price, though there are some auctions.

If you don't see anything you like, just bookmark it and be sure to check back from time to time as I'm always updating inventory.

Cardinals Fans May Want to See This

I have a 2001 Big Innings Rick Ankiel card (#1) up on eBay.  It is not a store item, so it is up for bidding.  You can see it here.  With the Cardinals winning the World Series, I think this card will go fast, as all things Cardinals are.  Happy bidding, and be sure to check out my other items.

Nothing Men: A Tale of Terror

Instead of promoting what I have in my eBay store this time around, I'll take a moment to discuss my new horror novel, Nothing Men

Before you rush out to purchase it, I have to warn you, this is not for the squeamish.  If your idea of horror begins and ends with Scream, then you will most likely end up traumatized by my story.  If, however, you prefer the likes of Jack Ketchum and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, then this is right up your sick little alley.  (One reader who read a review copy said, "This feels like one of those movies from the '70s and '80s where you knew everyone was going to die."  That was exactly what I was shooting for.)

Longtime readers who have followed my film and book reviews know I'm a big fan of exploitation, and this is my exploitation novel.  Today's marketplace is not exactly friendly to this type of horror.  There are no cute vampires or witches in the swamp.  It is just pure raw horror.  One family on a vacation gets sidetracked in the mouth of Hell.  A dad, mom and teenage daugther in a place where nobody can be trusted, and nothing is quite what it seems.  When the truth of their situation is finally learned, so comes the realization that there is nothing that can be done about it.

The first publisher I sent it off to called the ending "depressing," and he wanted me to change it before he would consider publishing it.  He liked the story, but the ending got to him.  I let him know it was supposed to get to him.  It wasn't supposed to be pleasant.  To change it would be to alter the entire feel of the story, and I was not about to do that.  What is available now is the story in its purest, most horrific form.

The cover, as some of you may recognize, is from a house in Northern California.  It's been covered on various blogs and whatnot.  I took the picture as I was writing this story.  It seemed perfect.  If you have ever seen the house in person, you know why I chose it. 

If this sounds interesting, I implore you to read the novel.  If it sounds a little too much, or you want a sample of my horror writing first, I recommend Melinda (which, despite my intentions, is rather loved by a group of fetishists in Britain) or even the very tame A Dead Friend. The links to all of these can be found to the upper right on this blog, and if you like any of these, please feel free to drop me a line or write a review.  I'd love to hear what you think.

Skin Deep in eBay Store

Skin Deep, a little seen but powerful movie, is now available in my eBay store.  You can click here to check it out.  How this movie didn't get more buzz when it came out is beyond me, and you won't find this at your local Target.  I have it, though, and it can be yours with no annoying bidding.  Thanks for looking.

More Items up in eBay Store

I've got more items up in my eBay store, Earth A.D. Auction Vault.  Books, movies, CDs, sports cards, toys and more.  Much of it is rare.  In the coming weeks and months I will be posting even more as I am trying to fund a few trips I need to take.  I appreciate your business, and many of the items are "buy now" and priced to move.  In fact, most of the items aren't auction items, so you don't have to worry about sniping or bidding more than you really wanted.  Thanks for looking.

Another Question

Is it just me, or have buyers from outside the US been a bit more flakey than usual?  I find myself having to turn them in for not paying more than I ever had before.  Usually it's after a series of dead-end e-mails where the same excuses are given and more time is always asked for.  Is anyone else experiencing this sort of thing?

Question

I know many of you who read this blog are also sellers on eBay, so I have a question for you.  What items sell the most for you?  I ask this because for me it used to be my CDs, but now it is kind of scattershot, with no one item category selling more than another.  (The last thing I sold, however, was a CD.)

I'm thinking of flooding my store with items, and I now have no idea what I should focus on, so I'd like to hear from you readers.  What sells best for you, and if you have any ideas why, that would be great to know, too.  Thank you.

Is eBay Dead?

I used to think eBay was recession proof.  In fact, I thought a recession was good for eBay.  The worse the economy got, the better I seemed to do on the site.  My auctions did well.  My store did well.  The past year and a half, however, has seen a massive drop in the amount of sales I made, and I don't think I'm alone.  Some of my friends who used to sell on eBay now utilize Craigs List and Amazon.  They say it the sole factor is they make sales.

I started this blog as a way to promote my items on eBay.  It worked for a short time, but I've noticed less and less traffic, and that's either due to the fact that there are more items to navigate through on eBay, less people coming to eBay, or I just don't have the items people want.  The latter seems less likely, as I've always carried the same types of items.  (I have also noticed an upswing in deadbeat bidders, too.)  More items on eBay is great for the site and the consumer, so I won't argue that one, but less visitors overall is bad news for everyone.

If you are a seller, what has your experience been as of late (and feel free to set up a link to your eBay store in your comments -- I don't mind promoting other people's stores as well)?  What have you noticed? 

If you are a buyer, where are you doing the majority of your buys from?  Is it eBay?  Amazon?  What have you noticed?

Time will tell if I keep the eBay store going.  Right now it is not looking good.  My last eBay sale was a non-paying bidder.  This was about two weeks ago.  If you make your living on eBay, that kind of thing is downright terrifying.  What do you think is causing it?

Rare Italian Metal CD up on eBay Store

Unsung's Tetsu is a rarity in this country.  A must for metal fans, this CD (in a cardboard sleeve) has lyrics written in both Italian and English.  Brutal stuff.  This is in the eBay store and is not up for auction.  I believe the price ($4.99) is very reasonable.  First come first serve.  You can get it here.
