Looking Ahead



As many of you already know,
AQS has stopped publishing new books.

For those of us with books
already published by AQS,
the future is murky indeed.


* * *


Recently I've notice this phrase in
the book-related print-media ads by AQS. 

"Order now while they last!"



* * *


Given this uncertain future,
if you have been wishing for a copy of
BUILD A BARN,
my suggestion would be to place your order 
sooner instead of later.


You can order a signed copy directly from me.
(see order info in sidebar)


BUILD A BARN is also available from


Amazon.com
(affiliate link in sidebar)

and



And, if you prefer an e-book,
there is one available through AQS.
