Last night I started selling Photographer’s Guide to the Panasonic Lumix LX5 in PDF format through my web site, whiteknightpress.com, using the FastSpring service to manage the downloads. That system has worked well in the past with the books about the Leica D-Lux 4 and the Panasonic Lumix LX3, and it seems to be starting out well for the LX5 book. As of now, about 24 hours after I posted the link for downloading the PDF file, I have sold about 10 copies, to buyers from the Netherlands, Singapore, the United Kingdom, Japan, and Germany, as well as several from various parts of the United States. I contacted the gentleman who runs a Lumix LX3 site, lx3-photography.com, and he was nice enough to post a link to my site for the download. I am also reaching out to other photography blogs and sites to try to get the word out to potential buyers of the book.
Of course, I know many people would prefer to have a paperback copy of the book, and I keep checking Amazon to see if the book has made it into their catalog, but as of a little while ago it had not done so. I hope it will get there within another few days.
Yeah! Make that 11 copies – I have just ordered my own copy & I'm downloading it now.
