Some publishers have been interested in taking the book, but after some thinking I've resisted the temptation because:

- I can update the books to fix errors, and have the updated book ready for people to buy within hours, and usually within 24 hours.
- As an author who has spent lots of my own time and effort on this, I get a much fairer deal with Amazon than with traditional publishers.

I'm looking forward to more translations - personally I wish there was a Spanish and Italian one too.
