releases

Dear readers,

to people under 30 this may sound strange, but we released our first paperback books at the end of 2017.

As a young and independent (online) publishing house, AETHYX MEDIAE usually doesn’t support vintage stuff. Except, in this case:

The Cipha.net Chronicles I The Cipha.net Chronicles II The Cipha.net Chronicles III
cnc1 cover cnc2 cover cnc3 cover
584 pages 414 pages 457 pages
109$ 99$ 99$

The Cipha.net Chronicles IV The Cipha.net Chronicles V The Cipha.net Chronicles VI
cnc4 cover cnc5 cover cnc6 cover
465 pages 485 pages 543 pages
99$ 99$ 99$
Amazon KDP Amazon KDP Amazon KDP

Features:

* colour interior on white paper
* glossy cover
* size 17 x 2,8 x 24,4 cm

As you may have noticed, we used Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing in this case. This was a logical step as we were there already with our Ebooks. For the future, maybe this year, we want to give CreateSpace a chance too.

One thing about the price and for more transparency: producing a weblog in book form is incredibly pricey yet. Let’s take The Cipha.net Chronicles III as an example.

The price tag of 99$ may seem heavy but Amazon takes 33$ for the printing cost alone. Distributing it to seven markets costs us another 39,44$. If we sell one copy here, we earn ca. 27 bucks. Which may sound like a joke with this price tag but that’s the harsh reality.

We will see what lies ahead of us in this field and we can’t promise to do more paperpacks but look forward to it.

Enjoy reading!

Yours truly,
the aethyx staff

This sets a new milestone for our young publishing house: Our first eBook releases are out!

As you may have already read, our underground text project http://cipha.net will cease to exist in 2013.

This is the end of an era: 9 hard years of underground blogging, several design updates and a difficult platform transformation from Greymatter to WordPress in 2006; these are just some of the steps that had to be taken over the years.

But, fear not: The texts, 2.100 of them, will be preserved!

The first trilogy sums up 1.050 entries and they are already available, for a moderate price. See the following list for more information:

These eBooks are all DRM-free. No strings attached, you can remix all of them, just name the source.

Also, Xinxii is just the beginning. They reside in Berlin and are specialists in publishing eBooks for independent authors and indie publishers. Our next step is to transfer them to the Google Play Store, but up to this date it isn’t possible to upload them via their Java uploader.

The other three books will be available in spring or early summer 2013. So stay tuned.

Best wishes and enjoy reading,
the aetyhx-staff
