Monkey Isle's publication on Amazon is delayed, because they can't figure out that check boxes aren't a font rendering issue. GAH. Waiting for a response from technical support.

Announcing!

JN2 Monkey Isle by J.D. Neal, Release 20 -- July 05, 2019
This new print release fixes just two minor issues: misaligned checkboxes on page 16. I've reviewed it personally and gone ahead and put it out on Amazon, and I'll be updating the Lulu copies soon.

Sort of. I was reviewing something else (which was fine, but I don't now remember what it was) when I saw them.

Any update from Amazon technical support? I noticed that it’s still not available for purchase through Amazon Prime.

Hi Tenteus; its listing on Amazon is the current version (the publication date being July 4, 2019), but you're correct it's not listed as Prime (though it does show in stock). Looking at the other Amazon BFRPG items, I'm not seeing Prime for any of them, and I couldn't say if it ever did. It could also have changed when Amazon's publication platform changed from Createspace to Kindle Direct Publishing. That's something that Solo would have to comment on.

(Actually, now that I look at it, it does state "Fast, free shipping with Amazon Prime")

If it helps, I purchased it on Friday and it shipped as Prime. It's in a locker so not collected it yet. I'm in the UK if that matters.

Thanks for the responses. I did a fresh search for BFRPG products and found it listed available for Prime! Before, I was searching directly for “Monkey Isle” and it kept showing the old edition.

Yes, this is the idiocy of Amazon's rules for changing edition numbers. Gah.

Use the links on the "Buy the Rules" page (see the big green button up there?) and you should find the right one every time.
