If they buy the ebook or the audiobook here on permies, then, yes.

I am not absolutely certain, but I think a person can buy the physical book without creating a permies account. So in that respect, we would be better than amazon.

I tried to give a lot away in missoula.  I have heard nothing back from any of those peeps.  Not sure what came of it.

Secondly, would providing copies to local media be appropriate - perhaps allowing for broader distribution of the concepts within the book?

Shawn did that with GREAT results!  I think it is a great idea.

Does anyone have ideas on which parties would be most beneficial in promoting either the book or it's concepts to a broader audience?

I would also like to hear answers to this.

One thing that I thought was kinda fun - was going to several micro libraries and putting a copy in there.  You can get a list of your local libraries here:

I believe the book was said to be available on Amazon. When distributing the books should purchasing options be offered, and if so is it better to have them pursue membership in Permies, or better to show a link on Amazon?

100% of amazon income (and headaches) go to shawn.   100% of direct income (and headaches) goes to me.  Amazon offers a rather dodgy affiliate program which used be reliable and substantial - at around 5%.  Permies has a transparent affiliate program wired for a 50% affiliate fee:

There are several people here that are musically inclined.  I am not one of them.

I suspect that nobody wants to hear me sing.  

And I saw the new musical instruments - which included a juice harp!  :)

18 people on the waiting list.  Zero people responded.  

If anybody is thinking that the list is too long - this is your chance to come out.  

Here is the email that went out:

We are open to two more boots!  If you throw your hat in to this round of coming to the bootcamp, you must:

- arrive on November 15th around 3 or 4 in the afternoon
     (or close to that for people that would be flying in)
- commit to a minimum of one week  
     (And, we hope, it is something that might last many months or even years)

The possible bunk arrangements at this moment look like this:

If this is you, then reply to this email.  Of all the people that reply within 24 hours, the two people that have been on the list the longest will be selected.

Is LBC Express something that is in missoula, montana?

Please do not post questions directly to this thread.

....  unless, of course, the questions are about where to ask a question.

(sorry about this - apparently we are not stating this enough)
