I’ll go live on Benny Pointer’s Facebook page this afternoon ( when the books arrive. Since it’s a public page, you shouldn’t need a Facebook account to view it.

Packing party/performance/potluck will be Mar 2nd. If you’re in the area and want to help, I’ll give you one with a white cover as a thank-you. Message me for more details on that.

I’ll ship them out shortly thereafter. Thank you so much for your patience. I can’t wait for you to have yours!

P.S. printed a few extras that may be available here

Guys! After what has felt like an absolute eternity, the books have cleared customs and are on their way from California to Texas! That will take about a week, and then it'll take another week to move from the Texas distribution center to the garage, where I'll stage them for the packing party! Send me a message if you want to join me there!
