Sales Report

Just wanted to show the sales report for my book, Sword & Board: A Basic Fantasy Supplement. I have sold 111 print copies since the book went into print around a month ago, not counting a couple freebie copies I sent out. I'm pretty happy with that. I am making no money on these, and I have only advertised here and on a couple forums. I imagine the very low price per book has helped with sales. If I had priced the books at $5 even, I'd have likely had similar sales, and would have even made a $120 or so.

I hope that at least some of the stuff is actually making it onto gaming tables. I know it was a grab-bag, but it's the kind of things that interest me.

Congratulations, Dan - those are very substantial sales numbers for a single book in one month.

Thanks! I suspect part of it is the very low price. I also think a large factor is that my book is only the 2nd print supplement published for the BFRPG rules. I really wish BFRPG could get more things into print. pdf is cool, but not really the same thing.

Great work Dan. Next time remember to put a couple of coins in your pocket.

I didn't want to make money with this. Tax headache for little gain.

111? Very cool. Hope you get to make a little money on it next time. At least enough for a bag of chips/crisps.

This book goes to one-eleven. That is very good news, and it is a very good supplement made for a very good game.
