Investigator Weapons volume 2 Modern day now released

Recommended Posts

When is the PoD version going to be available?  I'm going stir crazy to purchase this book, but I loathe, loathe, loathe PDFs!

 

We are literally working on it right now. With a little bit of luck the files should be uploaded tomorrow or Wednesday and proof copy ordered. That takes about a week to come back. If everything is good, POD goes on sale shortly afterwards. Sale will of course be delayed if the files have to be corrected after the proof.

The POD proofs left the printer yesterday, so things are moving.

I got the ISBNs wrong, so another proof is on its way to me now. If you bought the PDF you will have recieved an email about an updated file, which is the updated ISBNs.

Wow, didn't know this was available already  :-D ! Unfortunately I've just realised POD is not  available yet (nor is it available from Leisure Games), and I don't do PDFs. Any news on this? By the way, when is the Victorian Age version coming out?

I have a POD proof of Investigator Weapons 2: Modern Day in front of me, so yes, this is coming, but no, it's not availeble yet.

 

I haven't yet handed in the final draft of Investigator Weapons 4: Gaslight and Wild West, but will do so in a couple months. Production will then unfortunately take a while, don't expect it too soon. We hope to kick Investigator Weapons 3: WWII out of the door before that, of course. That already has an edited final draft.

 

Cheers

Thank you for the reply. Loved the first Investigator Weapons book and I've no doubt this one will be a keeper too. I'll sacrifice my wallet as soon as this puppy is available on POD.

 

Thank you and Sixtystone Press for these most excellent supplements! :)

Is the offer just the POD version or a combined PDF and POD?

It's POD only. I remember getting both when I ordered from Leisure games the first volume, but they have the Brick&Mortar stuff (strangely, I did get a link to download the PDF when I got the email from Drivethrough, but there's nothing to download). They have a special price for POD+PDF on the website. But hey, for 15 bucks you can't complain  :-D

Just the POD for the moment. It's priced so that if you bought the PDF earlier you only pay as much as the POD on its own.

Will this have a standard print run as well, or are you POD-only at this point?

I'm hoping to secure distribution soon, but the books will be POD to start with as the funds to fund a print run don'tr exist at the moment. The Lulu books are now virtually indistinguishable from a traditional print run.

Lulu?  Yes.  But you're using drivethru, and they aren't quite as good (lower quality control, definitely not as good packaging, and that annoying last page with the POD barcode).

It hasn't been released to shops yet, the distributors aren't answering my emails.

 

So if you want a copy *now*, the best bet is to get a POD version from DTRPG. There isn't a lot of difference between a Lightning Print or Lulu version.
