I'm in for the early bird. Not sure about the level yet, but it is all looking good.

An established book publicist has connections with media people, book reviewers and industry folks. If they get your book in front of two or three reviewers in major media, the readers of the reviews could number in the millions. You have a quirky story with a great hook...save the world by doing stuff in your backyard. With all the concern about any number of environmental and social issues, exposure of the book and it's story should generate huge sales. At the price point you are selling it on Amazon for, you only need to boost sales by 1800 copies to break even. By the way, I question the category that you have your book listed under. Conservation doesn't begin to describe it. "Gaia's Garden: A Guide to Home-Scale Permaculture," which would seem to be something close to your book topic, is listed as #1 in "organic." You can select at least two categories to list your book under. Picking the correct categories will get your book in front of the right people.

I had several rocks in my backyard that I discovered while digging holes to plants a couple of trees. The prefect spots had already been selected, so the rocks had to go. I dug around them (rocks a couple of feet in diameter) and then got my corded electric drill and my largest masonry bit. I drilled holes in the rock a few inches deep. I then pulled out a couple of ironworker bull pins (you can buy them new . These pins were tapered, from a point to a shaft about 1 1/4" thick. They were maybe 8" long. I placed the pins in the holes and started striking them, just as the guy in the video did. It didn't take long to spilt the rocks into chunks I could wrestle out of the holes. I'm a big guy, but 68 years old. I was not working myself into heart attack mode during this process.

Hope this helps.
