...Are there any goodies if we buy?

I think it's a fair question. A lot of products nowadays give out stuff like fanbooks, figures, etc, to preorders and/or the first X orders.

No, there aren't. It's not that I'm unwilling, it is simply that there is no way to tie in the various e-book shops with the BattleMaster backend.

I don't have an e-reader. Is there a PDF version available? Or even text?
After all it's a roleplaying game.

I don't either, looking into e-reader software for my laptop.

There's e-reader software readily available.

Yes, I could make a PDF as well. But the various e-book shops don't sell PDF. And I don't want the hassle of sales and transactions for myself.

And even if you don't have a Kindle, you can still buy Kindle books and use the Kindle for PC app available for free through Amazon so don't let that put you off a purchase!

Even better--use "Amazon Cloud Reader" and simply view it as a web page.

Which is really trivial because - surprise - e-books are basically HTML files. :)

Hm... really nobody buying, or is the reporting delayed? According to Amazon, I have sold a grand four copies so far - two on .com and two on .co.uk - and Lulu says I've sold nothing.

I didn't exactly expect a bestseller, but four is a bit frustrating.

I'll be buying a copy in the next few hours, soon as I figure out which option is going to hurt me least in currency exchange fees.

Well yeah, that's one more. I'm more wondering about the big picture. I had estimated about 100 sales, that'd be 10% of the players. But less than 1% of the players? That sounds like something is wrong - do the sales not work? Do people not know? That's what I'm wondering about.

Well, I bought one of the amazon.com copies...maybe those who bought them, should post reviews. I'll try to do that tomorrow.

I should mention here that I'm 85% through and I've enjoyed the book.

Once I grab my buddy, I will pay him so I can buy the book. Got no credit card for myself.

Glad to hear that. And yeah, reviews would be cool.

Done. I find it annoying that I can't put the link to battlemaster in the review, but it makes sense, for combating spam.
