In the Red or In the Black?... Who Cares. Part 4

A special early update. Because today is a big day.

I added the new numbers to the previous update from 11/10/16.

Print
RPGNow: 29
LULU: 90 + 29 = 119
Amazon: 131
+ 42 = 173

Total = 321

--I started selling the book on Amazon at the very end of August. Sales for each month: September = 56, October = 47, November = 60.

Downloads
RPGNow: 1,088 + 117 = 1,205
LULU: 270 + 31 = 301

Total = 1,506

Revenue from the 3
RPGNow: $89 + $6 = $95
LULU: $137 + $45 = $182
Amazon: $86
+ $27 = $113

Total Revenue = $390

Cost to make the book = $330
Print Proofs: $60 
Total cost to make it = $390

I BROKE EVEN TODAY!!

Considering I make a buck and some change on each print book sold at Lulu and Rpgnow and about .70 cents at Amazon; this is pretty amazing to break even after 4 months.

  1. Glad you broke even -- I love this iteration of the rules. Love the clean layout and the added thief option. A great product. It's going to be my go-to version when I start up my fantasy campaign again.

  2. Chiming in late because I received this for Christmas (the first gaming book I have received as a Christmas present in at least 10 years!). I have only skimmed it so far, but I really like what I have seen. Congratulations, Charlie, on a fine product. See you later around here or at Tenkar's Tavern. :D
