Volume 7 is Not Published Yet These are the people you will wish you had known.

Glad you’re interested, but Volume 7 hasn’t been published yet. We’re a bit backed up.

Sorry about that! It’s the perils of a one-man publishing operation….

Available now: Amazon Kindle versions of the first five volumes: see the list in the sidebar for more info.

Coming: more volumes, ebook access directly from us (in multiple formats, not just Kindle), and paperback versions are also starting to come out.
