  1. Please make this book available to electronic download. As a retired academic and educator I have already too many hard books and I need to minimize. Please think about environment!

  2. Your page here is a bit misleading. Why do you have $30 crossed out at the top? It appears that instead of the regular $30 price, you are doing a pre-publication sale for only $10. But then further down the column it looks like the book is actually $30 plus shipping.
    Now $30 may indeed be a reasonable price for this publication (and 1-year subscription to your channel), but the crossed out $30 at the top of the page looks like that’s all one would have to pay altogether. I recommend that you revisit your pricing schedule and make it more consistent with what you actually intend to charge – $10 total paid pre-publication, or $30 total no matter when you buy it.

    1. Hi Mary. Thanks for your comments and suggestions. The e-commerce site doesn’t allow us to split the payments into two separate payments – $10 deposit and $20 plus shipping later. So we wrote in the description that this is a deposit and the $30 is crossed out and shows $10 because that’s what you pay now. In my emails to buyers I will remind them that the $10 is a deposit and they will be billed for $20 in June when the book is published. If anyone is confused or expected the full price to be $10 we are happy to refund their deposit. All the best, Barbara
