I submitted the Kindle file for the Panasonic Lumix LX5 book to Amazon on Sunday, December 12, and it became live and available on Amazon for sale this afternoon, by about 2:00 Eastern time. That was pretty fast. The only problem now is that the Kindle version is not linked to the paperback version, so someone who finds either version on Amazon won’t be aware that the other one exists without doing a separate search. I’m not sure if Amazon will automatically create that link; if not, I will send them a message asking them to link the two editions. Here is a link to the Kindle edition of the Lumix LX5 book. The Kindle edition sells for $9.99, about the same as the PDF, which is sold through my web site at www.whiteknightpress.com. It will be interesting to see which of those two e-book versions sells better.
I’m very grateful to Guy Parsons in Australia for his help in providing comments on the final draft of the Leica D-Lux 5 book, which has gone to the printer. Guy also pointed out some issues with my web site, which I have corrected, though the appearance of the site still could use some more work. Guy is a frequent contributor to the forums at www.dpreview.com, particularly the Panasonic Talk forum, and he also maintains his own excellent web site about the Panasonic LX3 camera and related topics, as well as about other cameras and photography topics.
As for the availability of the Leica D-Lux 5 book, it is available now in PDF format through my web site, and I’m hoping that the paperback version will be available on Amazon.com starting within a week or two from now; that schedule largely depends on how quickly Lightning Source, the printing company, starts producing copies.
