    Pre sales end this weekend. The book ended up being 248 pages instead of 220.....I decided to reduce my small margin of profit rather than start removing photos :thumb

    This weekend I remove the pre sales package and won't be taking orders until mid May (which wont include a dvd) once the printing is finished.

    A huge thanks to everyone who purchased a book, it's much appreciated. Enjoy the read :thumb

    A huge thanks to everyone who made a purchase of the pre sale. Sales are now completed and the book is being shipped to the printer this week. A couple of weeks to finish up the DVD then in early May the package will be shipped :thumb

    Regular book sales will begin in May for anyone who missed the pre sale (DVD will no longer be available). The price may go up a few dollars based on the added number of pages (248 instead of 220 as originally forecasted).

    A few photos as a small thank you

    Cheers

    Ted

    Hardcover was for pre sales only unfortunately. Regular sales will begin in a month or so, once all pre sales are received :thumb

    All US and Canadian pre sales have shipped and we're working our way through the overseas ones. Kinda cool, at least one was purchased in each continent.


    Glad your enjoying the read :thumb
