Yes, but what if it doesn't sell and many of the books are returned? I know that here in Canada our one main bookstore chain, Chapters/Indigo, recently *halved* the amount of time they will keep a book in stock before it's returned to the publisher. I think they cut it from 90 days to 45 days.

If the book does sell out, though, Eileen will start getting some very nice royalty cheques.
