Things have been very quiet of late here at the house of KLP, so I thought it might be prudent to post an update about where things are at, and where they’re heading in 2020.
But first, I feel need to remind everyone that all of our books are indeed digital publications—eBooks in PDF format. There have been a few unfortunate instances in recent times where purchasers have failed to realise this, and I’ve been forced to issue refunds. This results in unnecessary disappointment all around, with the purchaser potentially feeling like they’ve been deceived. This is certainly not our intention! And we’d like to avoid this situation occurring again in the future if at all possible.
For a more detailed explanation about why we chose the eBook path, please see our article Why Digital?
Stepping Down from LSP
Some of you will be aware that I have been the administrator of the Large Scale Planes website and forums since around 2010. While it has been a privilege to serve the LSP community as administrator for the last 10 years, I’ve recently taken the decision to stand down from the position. LSP is a large and very active community, and required anywhere from 20-30 hours per week of my time. This unfortunately left me with insufficient time to work on KLP projects, resulting in a very slow and sporadic release schedule, with books taking far longer to come to fruition than I had planned. As LSP makes the transition to a new leadership regime, and my available time begins to free up, I will be returning to the backlog of book projects with renewed vigour!
Speaking of book projects, there are several in the pipeline already, and a few more potential projects under negotiation. I’ll make the relevant announcements at the appropriate time, but needless to say, I’m looking forward to being able to work on them again, and bring out some more great modelling content.
I’m also open to suggestions for new book topics, so if you have any, you can either email me directly, or leave a comment below. You just never know!
In the meantime, our current catalogue of scale modelling eBooks is still available, so please check them out in our store.
