My first book is now available!

Recommended Posts

My first book "The Atari 2600 Homebrew Companion: Volume 1" just went LIVE this morning via Amazon.com (plus 6 other countries)! The paperback is printed in black & white on creme paper, just like the 80's video game digest books. It covers 34 homebrew titles for the Atari 2600 in 182 total pages. Homebrews spanning from 1995 to today! 

 

Amazon Kindle version will be available in a couple of days for $3.99. If you purchase the paperback and want the kindle too, the kindle version is reduced to $1.99.

I'm also going to upload a color version of the same book, since I've had numerous requests for color pictures (though it will be pricey due to the color printing costs of Amazon). 

 

There are some preview pics of selected pages (by Amazon) on the webpage. Just click "Look Inside" right above the picture of the cover to see them. If you'd like to see a sample title, I can post one here, since Amazon only shows the beginning few pages and none of the actual homebrew titles. The game list is in the table of contents which is one of the preview pages.

If you purchase a copy, please let me know what you think. How did I do for my first book? Anything you'd like to see added for Volume 2?

 

Thanks!

Brian

Looks like my copy of the book should be arriving by Saturday.  :)

Sweet! Let me know what you think. It is my first book.

Warning - because of Amazon's costs of color pages (182 pages in total for the book), this book is pricey at $30.99. But the ebook $3.99 and the b&w paperback $12.99 are still available. I added the color version after many requests.
