Other than 'dont' ? ;-)

Ok, seriously - I sold about 25 copies IIRC. people were pretty good
about paying on time too.

If you can find a source of suitable cardboard boxes its a bonus - hand
wrapping 25 books in cardboard is no mean feat ;-)

AFAIK, all the CDROMS arrived intact (I burned them to save the trouble
of the publisher sending them to me, on their advice).

Dont forget to factor in your costs. I made a net loss of a few quid,
but thats OK as I wasnt in it for the money.
