Insurmountable Odds – Print Edition!

More awesome, than a whole bucketful of awesomeness… a picture says a thousand words. My thousand are all ‘Awesome’…


Via CreateSpace I now have print editions of Insurmountable Odds!

I can’t tell you how it feels to hold a print copy of your own work in your own hands. It’s worth every minute of the effort!

This first proof is a duffer – too late, I spotted I’d been banjaxed by Word altering the fonts – so some chapters have totally different fonts to others! Also, the book size (6″ x 9″) is huge! And the font size needs reducing. So, round two will probably keep the book size, and reduce the font (and fix the fonts up). And I may try a smaller page footprint so it’s more in line with traditional books. Not sure yet… still thinking. Also, due to the distribution system – the purchase is very high, and gives very little in royalties… so it’s not a great option for the end customer, or getting revenue for Dom… but what the heck, it’s free to set up 🙂

Of course, once done – I will be offering some copies as a prize for an as yet to be announced competition 🙂

    It seems like you are about to sell some new… hardware units… to your customers.
    Are those tested for safety?
    Hardware testing can be a very costly endeavour for a company as small and humble as yours!
    But fortunatly i’d be willing to perform those hardware tests for you, for no additional cost!
    You’d only have to send me one of your units for testing!

    btw, to prevent your software from changing fonts without permission you could use LaTeX instead of …. word… *shudder*.
    at least for scientific publications thats the only way you even get taken seriously (sad but true)
