Update, 1st May 2018. We have interest from 40-50 people for a 3rd printing of the book. We need to get to 150 to make the print run worthwhile. If you would like a copy please email Pat on email@example.com to register your interest, we will not ask for payment until the print run is ordered. Many thanks to all of those who have supported the book. Steve.
Update, 9th February 2018. 2nd printing of Setting the Scene has been delivered and the books will go in the post today/tomorrow. We have sold about 75% of them so we have about 30-40 copies left. If you have been undecided about getting a copy now is the time, as I doubt that there is enough interest to warrant a 3rd printing. If you would like a copy please email Pat on firstname.lastname@example.org and he will send you a Paypal invoice. Many thanks to everybody who have supported the book, particularly those who waited patiently whilst we dealt with the problems associated with the first printer. Steve.
Update, 26th January 2018. Setting the Scene has been sent for reprinting. The copies should be delivered in about 10 days time. If you would like to order a copy please email Pat on email@example.com.
Update, 16th January 2018. Setting the Scene – SOLD OUT – Many thanks to everyone who supported the book, we sold the last copy yesterday. There are still a few orders trickling in, so Pat and I have to make a decision about reprinting. We have decided to see how much enthusiasm there is for a reprint by taking pre-orders again. If you have seen my previous posts and were undecided now is the time. Please email Pat on firstname.lastname@example.org to register your interest. For now we are just collecting names to see if the reprint is viable, we will let this run for a week or so. I am also going to investigate the possibility of producing a Kindle version through Amazon, we have however ruled out producing a pdf.
Update, 15th January 2018. Interest in the book has been very good and we are very nearly sold out. Pat and I will now have to decide whether there is enough continuing interest to warrant a reprint.
Update, 12th January 2018. The Setting the Scene terrain book has been printed and all of the pre-ordered copies have been put in the post. Many thanks to everyone who supported the book.
Here is an update. The Setting the Scene terrain book is finished and has been sent for proofing. Pat and I are now asking for those people who have previously shown interest to definitely commit to buying the book.
The price for the book is £17.50
UK postage 1st/2nd class is £1.74/£1.58
World Zone 1 £7.45 (North & South America, Africa, Asia).
World Zone 2 £7.90 (Australia, New Zealand, Singapore).
We are not asking for money yet, please just go to the special page that Pat has set up on his blog and state how many copies you want. We can then get a better idea of what the final print run will be, we will obviously print some ‘overs’ but we cannot afford to print too many. Here is the link.
We will be asking for payment when we send the book for the actual print run which will be in about 10-14 days time.
Here is an update. Thanks for all of the interest in Pat’s Terrain Book. The design/layout aspect of the book is now finished. Proofreading will be done this week and print proofing a week to 10 days after that. When we get proofs/dummies we can work out postage costs and final price of the book. In the next week or so I will post and give instructions of how you can sign up for a copy.
I have decided to venture into the world of self-publishing. Pat Smith is a wargaming friend, he has a blog wargaming with silver whistle. Lots have people have shown interest in his ‘Setting the Scene’ winter terrain. Between us we have decided to self-publish the book. It will be A4 and around 120 pages with step by step guides to building his winter terrain.
