Direct Purchasing

After much research and tweaking my website, people can now preorder "A Reason to Hope" through my website and using Paypal.

I haven’t purchased the extra copies yet, but plan to within the next day or two. That’s why they won’t be available to send out for 3-4 weeks. That’ll still be enough time for Christmas, methinks. You can find out more here.

With money tight all around, and most people not planning to spend a lot on Christmas gifts, books and other low-cost items are a great way to make Christmas a happy time regardless of what the economy is doing.

Hope you’re having a great week. Mine’s been busy with figuring out how to sell my books on my website. Work has also been crazy busy lately. We were hired to complete a set of street intersection modification plans for the North Dakota Department of Transportation. Their requirements are intense, and a bit insane. The same project originally drafted for the City of Mandan the plans totaled five pages. The DOT set will add up easily to thirty. That number is just the drawings, not the specifications and other proposals.

Everything needs to be 90% completed by Wednesday of next week. In the meantime they’re still requiring major changes.

Yep. Government. The very definition of waste.
