Re: Point Blank Band 5 : Mai 1944 - Operationen und Einsatzverluste der deutschen und alliierten Luftstreitkräfte in Europa 1944

Dear Friends,

The production costs for books in Germany are rising for a long time exponentially. This poses big problems, especially for small publishers like my own. In addition, there is still a glaring shortage of paper in Germany. There is no way I can pass on the increased prices to my readers. I would have to sell a book that normally costs around 50 Euros for around 80 Euros to compensate for the price increase. That really does not work. That's why I'm currently forced to wait until prices drop significantly again. I'm really sorry about that, but unfortunately there's no other way. I ask for your understanding of my current situation

All the best

Fred

Dear Fred, I think who is ready to pay 50 Euro for such a book, will also pay 80 Euro. So, I encourage you to go ahead, perhaps in a smaller print run, because I don't expect prices to fall back to pre-COVID levels anytime soon (if ever). My opinion.

Fred,


I would suggest contacting printers in other countries. I have been in book publishing for 40 years and have seen paper prices either go up slowly or quickly. The bottom line is the only direction they go is up.


Best regards,
Ed West

Hi Fred

I have the volumes coveirng Jan, Feb, March & April and I do want to complete 1944 with the remaining volumes, as I find them invaluable for research on the RLV.

Am I reading it right that it is not worth placing an order for the remaining volumes at this moment in time? Are there any volumes from May onwards that you have in existing stock?

These are great research books and I do hope to be able to complete 1944.

Regards Richard.

Richard

So far 11 volumes have been published up to August 1944. Some of the latter months are published in two volumes.
I suggest you contact Rudi Penker again to get an offer for those volumes you don't have.

Cheers
Stig

Dénes, Stig, Ed, Richard,

Thank you very much for your valued comments. I've come to the conclusion to continue with work as before. I'll be retiring next year and then I'll be able to devote myself exclusively to the book volumes which are still outstanding.

All the best,

Fred
