Hi @dfzx,

I'm pretty sure that newer versions of Firefox include a built in ad-blocker. It obviously doesn't like Amazon!

You have trusted SC, but the link is from Amazon, so it's probably blocking it.

I'm using Chrome.

Obviously some browser issue, I just tried it on a smartphone and it works.
btw, it is too expensive, but I definitely appreciate the effort.

17 pounds? I'm sorry, but that's way too much. To be brutally honest, your book does not really look professional enough to warrant this price. Actually I would probably pass even if it was a fiver, because it looks like something I could put together myself in few days.

It's a good idea, but I think you should take it back to drawing board (add backgrounds, move past basic formatting, etc). Then maybe do a Kickstarter - or risk a small independently printed run yourself. I've looked at prices for similar formats recently and they aren't actually so bad (though, of course do involve some initial investment.)

Hello, fair enough thanks for the feedback, yes the colour does put the price up unfortunately, I will look at changing it to black and white inside. I've never done anything like this before so it's a start I guess.

Thanks again for the comments, appreciate it.
