It is my pleasure to advise that the book is scheduled to arrive at Long Beach, California on May 1 after a long and tortuous gestation and birth! It has turned out to exceed my best hopes and has been very enthusiastically received by the few people who received advance copies last week. i am now delivering on my offer to you all at the various workshops around the country. The book retail;s for $65.50 delivered through the website. I am offering it to recipients of this list for $50.00 delivered by media mail anywhere in the USA. To take up this offer please send your cheque made out to me at 120 San Fernando Avenue Morro Bay CA 93442 and I will send your copy as soon as it has cleared customs. If the book does not meet your expectations, please feel free to return it in its original condition and I will refund your purchase price. The website is being upgraded with samples from the book at www.alpacahandbook.com if you would like to take a look later next week.
