Quote from: Nreive on 18:40, 18 January 10While I would get the Full Colour version, the PDF will be the most popular choice for many buyers.
Quote from: ukmarkh on 18:12, 18 January 10This is where I'll be updating you guys with the progress of the book thus far... currently it's around 30% complete, I have already completed the book cover, along with many articles including the CPC intro and history. Please pledge your support for the upcoming book, and remember all I wanna do is break even... not make a profit. I'm thinking of only making ten full colour books available. I think the PDF is more likely to be around £3-5 - It all boils down to what amazon and Lulu charge.FYI - The book will also cover Speccy, Atari XL, BBC and Commodore content... but is primarily written for users of the Amstrad CPC, with the other machines used for reference and comparisons. So Far:Book cover - 100%Intro - 100%Begineers guide - 100%Alan sugarAmstrad CPC 464 history - 100%Amstrad CPC 664 history - 40%Amstrad CPC 6128 history - 90%MagazinesPublic domainTop 100 1984 - 30%Top 100 1985 - 5%Top 100 1986Top 100 1987Top 100 1988Top 100 1989Top 100 1990Top 100 1991Top 100 1992InterviewsDIYWorst games on the CPCBloodiest games on the CPC 40%The CPC can scroll - 90%Speccy Ports
Quote from: Gryzor on 14:12, 21 January 10Ygdrazil, maybe this is not too much for us (I'd pay double that!), but it may be too much for others. For instance, there are those lovely Speccy/c64 books out there but I'm not touching them because of the price - I'm simply not THAT interested...
Quote from: Gryzor on 17:37, 21 January 10What's the minimum order qty for Lulu?
Quote from: ukmarkh on 16:52, 21 January 10I spoke with LuLu and a few others, and they aren't interested in doing a mixed B/W & Colour book... it's B/W or colour only :-I really wanted the book to be cheaper, as I were hoping for around 350 pages, but that would have bumped the cost up massively. Instead I've planned to release a Vol2 if Vol1 does ok. Again, I just need to tread water, and hopefully not make too much of a loss.

Quote from: Trebmint on 11:30, 28 January 10Is it possible you could video this meeting, rather than the seemingly usual email exchange. That would be fun
