I assume you mean Volume 1 and not Chapter 1.

That's not too likely to happen. Here's the problem. Economics dictate
that I make very little on an eBook if I sell it as a standalone
product. I bundle it with the other two volumes and membership in my
online community at RevolutionPros.com at a combined price of $97,
which is $14 less than the combined three PDFs will cost. Now I have
enough cash flow to justify my taking the time to write the subsequent
The total installed base of RunRev is so small that even if everyone
who ever bought a license bought one copy of Volume 1, I'd end up
making less than I usually get for an advance on a book where I don't
have to do any of the marketing, support, etc. So I can't see a way to
make economic sense out of selling one volume at a time.
That said, I am offering all chapters after Vol. 1 singly at an average
of $5 each. It has occurred to me that I *could* make the chapters of
Volume 1 available one by one at a similar price point if there were
sufficient interest in the community.
I'm listening. Sorry I can't accommodate your request but maybe there
are other ways of doing this. I'm receptive to ideas.
This series of books is as much a labor of love giving back to the Rev
community as anything else. that said, I'd like to cover my costs and
some reasonable profit for what amounts to a huge amount of work.
