    Hi

    I think you should put out an update here since the book has been out for a while

    God or Allah, truth or bull? has been launched in February 2011 in the US and is available online:

    http://www.strategicpublishinggroup.com/title/GodOrAllahTruthOrBull.html
    http://www.amazon.com
    http://www.barnesandnoble.com
    BookOrder@AEG-Online-Store.com [for wholesalers].

    The normal retail price of the publisher is US$29.00 [excluding shipping]. The shipping cost alone, for shipment to Singapore, is about US$9.

    I still have a few copies left, from a purchase I made recently, at author’s privilege price, that is, minus the author’s share of royalty; in other words, the author forfeits his/her royalty when he/she buys at author’s privilege price. The landed cost per book for me was Sin$37.00.

    Due to the high printing cost in the US [for this book the printing cost was US$9.70] and high shipping cost for an overseas buyer, the import cost in Singapore seems highly prohibitive.

    I am currently exploring the plausibility of doing ‘a South East Asian edition’ – with a local printer, subject to clearance by The Media Development Authority of Singapore and, perhaps, clearance form my current publisher .

    Local printing companies and book distributors/publishers are leery concerning any literary work about God/religion.

    Because people, or many people, think that God is real, existent, and that no one should speak ill of God, notwithstanding that the God of their belief is portrayed in biblical script as a cruel. racist, insane, genocidal maniac.
