Book came yesterday, really impressed fella.. Tweeted the hell out of it also so i hope you get some mpre sales.

Are you getting www.castlebooks.co.uk or com domain?
Nice one, glad you liked it...it was ok for a first book, but was put together really quickly in around 6 weeks from start to finish, so looking back there's some things i would have changed, but in the time-frame i completed it I thought it was good.
Thanks for tweeting it, i only have a few copies left anyway, there's only so many people who have heard of the Gizmondo let alone played one, then let alone wanting to read more about it  :21:

Wow, sold out of the paperback now! Had more sales in one week than the whole of the last year! Where did all the Gizmondo fans come out of the woodwork!
Anyway only a couple copies of the hardback left too now.
Thanks to those who bought a copy,  :113: btw fyi you're one of only 50 (physical books) owners worldwide, that's all that I ever sold (40pb, 8hb, 37pdf,kindle), so it's a nice collectors item. Only the PDF version will remain on sale when the hardback sells through.

I've still had a few people ask for the paperback, so I've decided to resell the paperback, you can order a copy direct from the publisher;
