Thank you much sir. Time, effort, love, hatred, boredom, excitement, a mix of just about any and everything!

{{I was on the verge of buying your book there, sadly however it's hell of a pricey, outside my range for a paperback-Amazon UK want 33 quid plus postage for it (about 41 dollars before postage), that's more than 3 times the normal cost of a paperback -who are you writing it for the 1%!  Mad
Sadly therefore, for now at least, it will have to wait, I simply cannot in my circumstances justify that amount of money on a single paperback. I'll need to wait and hope it goes on sale at some point.}}

Understandable! Due to the many high quality colored images and artwork, print versions need the highest quality paper and so the costs is high.

Have you considered eBook? It can be read for free on Kindle.

{{I dont own a kindle. Shame you didn't do a non-illustrated paperback version, it would be a third of the cost and might get you more sales, mine for a start. I'm not bothered by the illustrations I am interested in reading the content, I can look at endless Tolkien art all day long online.
Worth remembering many of our most revered authors-Dickens, Doyle and such all made their name and fortune selling cheap affordable prints of their books alongside the middle class versions, or publishing in magazine instalment format so it was cheap enough for the masses to read. We'd probably never heard of either of them if they'd charged 3 times the amount of a normal book for them. Just maybe something to consider going ahead on future projects you may do. }}

Yes, a lesson I learned a bit late.

{{ well, we live and learn, or maybe even to learn, and hopefully it'll turn up in a sale somewhere eventually }}
