If you’re an Amazon customer, go for it!

Bookstores
Right now the books should be available through most bookstores in the USA/Canada by special order. You should be able to walk into most stores and give the ISBN of 978-061569759-8 for Volume 1 or 978-1503096059 for Volume 2. If you do that and they say they can’t find it, please let me know!

Ordering books from me
If you want books autographed or personalized, you can order it from me directly using the shopping cart buttons below if you’re in the USA. Just be sure to email me a follow up (at ctan.writer at gmail) to make sure I got the notification and to find out when I will ship it. I don’t have a big operation here and so Createspace is faster and more reliable than I am. But if you want a gift personalized, etc. just please do follow up with me and give me at least two weeks to get it into the mail. (I’m often on the road.)

If you’re not in the USA, you’ll also need to email me to get a shipping quote on what it will cost to get these big books over to you. They each weigh over two pounds, which is a significant cost to ship from the USA to most other places.
