I am out of books until the 6th of October. If you’d like to be notified of when I have more in stock, then email me (keep “Notify” in the subject line). Or, if you order in advance, I’ll throw in free priority mail shipping. That amounts to about a 10% discount (the book is $60). I figure that’s the least I could do. To order, you can either use the donations button -in the upper right hand corner of the page, under the search button- in the sum of $60 (foreign orders may have to pay a portion of their shipping). Or if you want to pay by credit card, you can call me at 575-525-1577. Your card will not be charged until the day after I ship. Don’t mind about calling, I like it when people call. I’m the only one who answers the phone. I have an office but I work alone. If you call, we can chat. Sometimes I rant and laugh a lot. Would you know that from reading this blog? No one writes to the colonel.
As far as being out of stock, I hope this comes out the right way but I’m almost glad for the respite from the activity of selling and processing books. With the break, I plan on doing a couple of things, one of them being that I’ll be shipping the DVDs that I owe to some of you. During the break, I plan on figuring out a way to improve the fulfillment of those orders. It doesn’t help that it’s a lot of work to put the accompanying kits together and the margin is really small but I can’t justify charging more for it if I hate it so much. I made that DVD two years before I started writing even the newsletter (the precursor to the book) and if I’d known I was going to write a book, I would have done the video a lot differently. I would have designed the content to be along the lines of “the entrepreneur’s guide to pattern making” which would have been a whole lot different.
The other thing I’m going to do in my book shipping break, is get my shop cleaned up. I have a lady who helps me. Her name is Ida and she’s my landlady’s mother. We’re good friends, Ida and me. I wrote a whole post on it which I’d cut and paste in here now but I don’t have time to seam these two entries together. I think my son is ill. I have to go home and take his temperature and then maybe take him to the doctor. I’d planned another entire post for today and I hope I can get to it later today.
