Yes, the time is now. You can officially buy a copy of Lost Vegas: The Redneck Riviera, Existentialist Conversations with Strippers, and the World Series of Poker.

I am selling the book via a third-party seller, Lulu.com. The books are print-on-demand (POD) which means that they are environmentally safe for all of you tree huggers. We will not waste any paper. Lulu prints copies as you order them.

So anyway, you can go here to buy the book.

Anyway, here are some quick Lost Vegas FAQs...
Q. When and where will the book be available for purchase?

A. Lost Vegas is due out June 29, 2010 and exclusively sold at Lulu.com. Click here to buy a copy.

Q. Will there be an e-version of the book?

A. Not yet. However, we will be releasing an e-version in a few months. Soon come.

Q. Can I buy the book on Amazon.com?

A. Not yet. For now, the book is exclusively available at Lulu.com.

Q. What are the best shipping options?

A. Media mail takes 5-15 days for delivery and cost under $6 (for one book). If you want to be a baller and blow a wad on expedited shipping charges, so be it. Rest assured, there is a less expensive shipping alternative. Lulu is currently running a "free summer shipping" promotion, so take advantage of that!

Q. I live in a country outside of America. Can I get a copy?

A. Yes. The shipping might be pricey, but Lost Vegas is available for delivery to most places on Earth.

Q. Can I get an autographed copy?

A. Unfortunately, I am unable to send you an autographed copy. However, if you track me down at the Rio during the WSOP, I'd be happy to sign a copy for you. Or, if you happen to find me in the parking lot of a Phish show, then I'll be even more happy to oblige.

Q. Can I get a free copy?

A. No. I've been writing for free on Tao of Poker (and other sites) for many years and I have never asked for a cent. Here's your chance to make it up. It's taken me five years to write this book, I have to earn a living somehow.

Q. Can I get a review copy?

A. If you have been selected to receive a review copy, chances are you have already heard from me. Otherwise, you will not be getting a review copy. Unfortunately, I do not get any free books. Review copies come out of my pocket which is why I only sent out a limited amount.

Q. Will there be a hardcover version?

A. At the present moment... no. However, if there is a significant amount of interest, I will consider launching a hardcover collector's version in a few months.

Q. When will the French version be available?

A. Most likely in late 2010. Inculte will be publishing Lost Vegas in French. Benjo is writing the translation.

Q. Will there be other translated versions?

A. I'm in the process of negotiating a Spanish version and a German version. At the present moment, Lost Vegas will only be available in English.

Q. How do I contact you to do an interview?

A. Shoot me an email at pauly AT taopoker DOT com. We can arrange something. However, please understand this disclaimer: the World Series of Poker Main Event is the busiest time of the year for me (begins July 5th through July 17th). I am unable to fulfill every request during the first half of July. Rest assured, once the WSOP is over, I will have more free time to chat about Lost Vegas and I can give you my full attention.

If you have any other questions, do not hesitate to contact me.
