Advance Order Information for So You Wannabe a Shaman, Huh? paperback book
Well folks, I've been working pretty hard now getting So You Wannabe A Shaman, Huh? ready to go to the printers. Several people have been helping with some proofreading and advice, which I appreciate greatly. I'm presently doing a little final editing on the interior and gonna be writing a brief introduction to Toteg Tribe to include in the Preface pages so folks don't get too confused when they reach parts that refer to it in the main text.
Draja Mickaharic, author of the highly recommended Spiritual Cleansing (and other books such as A Century of Spells, Magical Techniques, Practice of Magic An Introductory Guide, and Magic Simplified) has written a nice blurb for the back cover. He wrote:
"I just finished the book. I love it. This book should be required reading for anyone who decides that they wish to follow the "Shaman's path." It pulls no punches and states the obvious: that shamanism is a specific set of spiritual practices that the inquirer may not be equipped to enter."Also Jacobus G. Swart , Kabbalist, Rod of the Sangreal Sodality, a Brotherhood founded by Wm G. Gray in South Africa, said good words about it too:
"I apply two criteria when it comes to esoteric books of all kinds: lucidity and honesty, and reading Joseph Bearwalker Wilson's "So You Wannabe A Shaman, Huh?" left no doubt in my mind that this author "walked his talk," that he knows what he is talking about, and that he is a living expression of the remarkable Tradition he is introducing with such astonishing clarity to his readers. To say that the author writes well would be an understatement as far as this book is concerned. I read, recognized, understood and acknowledge this masterful guide to all "Wannabe Shamans."
I spoke to cat yronwode of Lucky Mojo on the phone about it Friday and am mailing her a print out of the current draft for her to read -- she is quite enthused about it and will also be writing a nice blurb for me to use.
I'm going all out with this one, getting the ISBN for proper bibliographic listing in Books in Print, Forthcoming Books and other directories. In about 10 days I'll have 10 ISBNs to use so I'm a real book publisher now!
We should be able to get SO YOU WANNABE A SHAMAN, HUH? to the printer within about 15 to 20 days. I'm using the new Print on Demand technology which means it's more expensive per book, but we are able to do MUCH shorter runs so is a lot more practical for folks like us!
SO YOU WANNABE A SHAMAN, HUH? will be a 4x7 pocketbook printed in black ink only on 60 lb book offset paper. It will be 100+ pages, have a full color sky blue laminated cover on 10pt coated paper. These are essentially the same materials used in the Yellow book, but with a blue cover in a pocketbook size. The cover price is $17.00
In order to help raise money for printing I'm offering a pre-publication sale. For advance orders of 1-3 copies at $14 each, and advance orders of 4 or more copies at $10 each. For shipping to a US address the total price includes shipping via MEDIA MAIL. I'll have to make other arrangements for shipping to other countries on an individual basis since the post office charges much higher rates for that.
Please preorder the book, not to be "one of the first on your block to get it" but because it's a necessity for me to be able to pay for the printing! I'm taking a huge risk here that I truly can't afford, but "spirit told me to."
