Hiya guys, been long time since i was here.. anyway sorry if this is the wrong forum, I have spent the past several months working on an e-book aimed at game design for games. The main aspect of the book is to improve development of world design, characters and plot lines. I have gone into great deal offering help and advice on these aspects as well as including lists of the following weapons, items, armour, magic, monsters This e-book is a massive 127 pages and contains pure information to help develop your excellent game ideas. I have decided to keep the price of this large book at as low as possible. It only costs $4.95 for a entire ebook which is 127 pages long! If you are interested in this e-book and would like a copy then please send $4.95 via paypal to the follow address thalioncirth@hotmail.com once i have recieved payment i will e-mail you a copy of the e-book Thanks for reading and i wish you luck on your games Lionheart

Well not to be skeptical but is there some sample pages we can look at? Because 127 pages isn't massive and well... you didn't show any credentials that would imply you've done any sort of game design for any company or verifiable project.

Good luck on the sales, but to be blunt your lazy typing in this thread isn't inspiring confidence in your e-book. Did you use any capital letters and punctuation in the book? I normally hate people pointing out things like that in a forum but, well, you are trying to sell a book here...

Page sample would be nice, a project homepage would go some way towards helping your sales also. Being published at some kind of online publisher (even a lowcost one) would be even better - I think you will find it hard to sell any copies without some formal sales procedures.

Oh, and your book is overpriced [wink]

Good luck.

hmm out of curiousity: if someone buys the e-book and makes it "public". What do you do then? Do you have a kind of security system? Otherwise the book purchases are pretty low and you saved the guys who are usually digitizing printed books in two weeks a lot of time :-).

Hehe, which is sadly why this book will fail... If it gets popular, which I doubt, it's very easy to find it for free.

Hey! $4.95 is a great price. Any lower and I wouldn't pay it, it wouldn't sound professional - any higher and it would be over priced. He made a perfect price and you can't comment tooooo negatively on that aspect. :D

Another issue here is the fact that there's no automation. If you write four or so more similar books, including some tutorials perhaps, make book bundles and discounts, you could probably effectively open a website with automatic purchasing.

I can't be stuffed reading back up, but, make sure you put it into Adobe Reader or what ever it is if you haven't. :P
