  •  I liked the promo on the book very much. (3+ / 0-)

    What I didn't like a whole lot was the pricing, even on the ebook. That's not your call, I know, but it's high to get much in the way of sales beyond the academic, and I wouldn't figure there's much chance it will go to a cheaper paperback version.

    Could you see your way clear to posting, and discussing, excerpts on Daily Kos? Even if it's simply a recap of earlier posts, it might well draw a larger audience now.

    At least half the future I've been expecting hasn't gotten here yet. Sigh.... (Yes, there's gender bias in my name; no, I wasn't thinking about it when I signed up. My apologies.)

      ... as I understand it, on Amazon you can set the price you charge for the ebook.  I've heard that some authors may reduce the price of their electronic version for a week or a weekend usually in conjunction with promotion (maybe at this site), and then restore the pricing to the level you feel comfortable with after the promotion is over.

      Thanks for the well written and thought provoking diary, from a new follower.

      Great idea.  I'll probably do that as time allows.  

      The book (which I've taken to calling by an acronym, TORTS) collects and extends some work that I put out on the internet already (and it also has plenty of fresh, unpublished material).

      My backlist at the Daly News, a website run by the Center for the Advancement of the Steady State Economy, has a lot of my stuff.  "The Financial Crisis is the Environmental Crisis" can be found at

      The basic argument about how democracy is becoming endangered as we collide with ecological limits is one I've made in a lot of places online, including an essay for The Front Porch Republic titled "Mil, Hayek and our Midas Plight," which you can find at

      Feel free to read, share, repost, publicize, etc.--and thanks for appreciating what I do!
