The Kindle version of my book The Wargaming Compendium is at the ridiculous price of £1.19 GBP on the UK Kindle store right now, so if you don't have a copy, or would like a digital back-up version, now's The time to grab it!

No need for VPN. It's $1.30 USD on Amazon US.

Totally, totally worth getting. I think it is worth buying even at the full undiscounted hard copy price!

It's £1.19 GBP in the U.K. store
Is it any good?

Well, you could read the reviews.

Tried to get onto the Amazon UK store and yes it was 1.19GBP but as I'm not in the UK it said go away, try the US. So went to the Amazon.Com and there it is at 11.49USD…

Think I'll stick with my hard copy.

Hmm I just bought it for 1.30 usd at Amazon… on kindle

mpanko03 Mar 2019 7:44 p.m. PST

That is the craziest thing I have seen in a while…..98% off

Wow! Thanks for the heads up. Cost about the same as 1/3 of a cup of Starbucks. Bought it.

For those interested, my next book on wargaming campaigns will be out later this year. Just finishing writing it at the moment.

Thanks for the heads up Henry – copy bought and I look forward to seeing your new campaigns book. I hope you still make some money from my Kindle purchase but I can't imagine its much at that level of deep (bathyspheric) discount.

battleeditor Sponsoring Member of TMP04 Mar 2019 4:58 a.m. PST

About 12p a copy! 😂

Huh? I thought Kindle authors made either 35% or 70% royalties, less "delivery" costs. I guess because the file is huge, they charge a fair bit for delivery?

I too am looking forward to your campaigns book.

@Tony S

The book isn't self-publsihed: it's published by Pen & Sword. As a traditionally published author, I get paid 10% of net sale price.
