My new book "Within The Cards" is here!

After months of delays and problems and just about every little thing that could get in the way came and went, it's finally here and ready for you! My new tarot book "Within The Cards" is done, out there, and for sale! There is one catch though. Right now I only have the e-book versions available; the paperback version will be available in a few weeks though! Now, here are some of the important details!

Cover by the wonderful Devin Hunter!
E-books are funny things! Every eReader is different so the format of the e-book is missing the graphics and some of the formatting that you would see in a print book. The reason being that not all eReaders render images the same and even with trying to work the images for this book into this format there was a really good chance that it wouldn't come out right. SO, with that said, if you purchase the Kindle, Nook, or other e-book version you'll be missing those images and instead you'll have descriptions of things like layouts. The one electronic version that hasn't lost anything is the PDF version. Here you'll get an exact copy of the print book but in electronic format for your computer, iPad, etc. So basically you get to pick your poison with this. :)

The e-book versions are $15.
The paperback version will be $24.99

The page count varies based on what version you buy but I can tell you the paperback will be approximately 340 pages. As soon as the paperback versions are proofed and ready to go I'll be sure to let everyone know but since most people I've talked to are looking for Kindle or iPad versions, I wanted to get them out there right away rather than waiting for the traditional books to be ready.

So, are you ready?! Here's where you can go to purchase yours!
