My book, The Encaustic Materials Handbook, is now an Amazon Kindle publication. While it normally lists for $7.99 US you can get it for $0 until June 5! Yup, get it for nothing just because I like you.
I’m going to lean back, smoke a cigarette, have a little drinkie, and appreciate this moment. Okay, that’s done. I don’t smoke and I should really stop drinking before 5:00 pm. But this sense of accomplishment and closure is divine. Why didn’t I do this months ago?
Here’s the link to the book: The Encaustic Materials Handbook. Go and get it. While you’re at it, wouldn’t it be grand to leave me a review on Amazon? Lots of stars and some nice words.
But first I need to tell you a few things: This is a Kindle publication. If you don’t have a Kindle, no worries. Download the book and read it on Amazon, or get their Kindle for PC app. If you have another reader (iPad, Nook, whatever) or would prefer a pdf document, get Calibre, free ebook conversion software, from this site.
And if none of that works for you, download it anyway and email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll send you a copy.
Amazon review. Here are some high points you could mention in the review. These are just ideas, in case nothing else comes to mind:
- Nice photos (even though the author didn’t credit the photographer, that nice man known as The Theory).
- Lots of recipes.
- Thoroughly researched. Standing on the shoulders of giants like Francis Pratt.
Other phrases that might come in handy for your Amazon review:
- “Who knew you could do all that with gypsum?”
- “Baby powder–not just for the cocaine trade anymore.”
- “Billie Joe McAllister. That’s amazing! I haven’t thought about that song in years!”
- “Cold wax IS encaustic! Take that, you hot wax purists!”
- “Love that damar varnish. It goes with everything.”
Thanks for checking out the book. I need to go out to the studio and clean up. My son’s Dungeons and Dragons crowd have been practically living out there, and if I go now I can search their potato chip bags for a little snack.
