|Q: That's outrageous!! Why is it so poisonously expensive?||A: The book
was prepared for offset printing and distribution in Manila. This
didn't happen as our former "so-called" literary agent,
after seeing our pre-publication version, had ideas
to bring out his own book, in competition. Consequently, "AFTERMATH"
is released as print-on-demand product by the
Blurb printing company ex San
Francisco. The cost of print-on-demand books depends on their
physical size and the number of pages which they contain, the type
of cover, end-pages, etcetera.. This book is hardcover,
full color on quality paper, and presented in a large coffee-table size of 12 x 12 inch (30 x
format, and delivers in at 344 pages. Blurb's
actual printing costs are 95% of
the price that you pay. You heard that right! To that, they add shipping. Complain to them, not
to me, I have to pay their prices too.
|Q: Are there discount vouchers or coupons available to lower the price?||A: Yes, but you have to look for them. I suggest you Google the words "Blurb.com, Discount, Coupon" and the current month. Sometimes you can score between 10% and 30% depending on how much they need their cash-flow in San Francisco.|
|Q: I have heard there are different versions of this book. What's with that?||A: That's
right. It's "print-on-demand product" and specil versions have
been printed for Australian and American distribution. The most
version has been prepared for the MacArthur Memorial in Norfolk VA.
Special Versions can be ordered which reflect a brand or sponsorship.
|Q: Why not list it on Amazon?||A: Amazon
require a margin of full Blurb printing costs + 40%. For me to
make a five buck a copy royalty, you want to pay Amazon 140% of what the
Blurb price is?
|Q: Can I get a pdf file of the book?||Yes, an instant PDF version is available for US$7.99. See the pdf preview page.|

work on a non-Apple machine, I don't know. If you have other ePub
files working on your Android platform, then this should work. Is it my fault you didn't buy an iPad?
