This week when looking at the sales numbers of the vSphere Clustering Deep Dive series and Frank and I noticed that we hit a major milestone! In September 2014 we passed the 45000 copies distributed of the vSphere Clustering Deep Dive. Frank and I never ever expected this or even dared to dream to hit this milestone.
When we first started writing the 4.1 book we had discussions around what to expect from a sales point of view and I recall having a discussion with Frank around the sales number, Frank said he would be happy with 100 and I said well 400 would be nice. Needless to say we reset our expectations many times since then… We didn’t really follow it closely in the last 12-18 months, and as today we were discussing a potential update of the book we figured it was time to look at the numbers again just to get an idea. 45000 copies distributed (ebook + printed) is just remarkable, and we are very humbled, baffled and honoured!
We’ve noticed that the ebook is still very popular, and decided to do a promo. As of Monday the 13th of October the 5.1 ebook (kindle) will be available for only $ 0.99 for 72 hours, then after 72 hours the price will go up to $ 3.99 and then after 72 hours it will be back to the normal price. Make sure to get it while it is low priced!
