Good news: any of these books can be quickly arranged to be delivered (okay, perhaps here in the United States, as it might take a bit longer for elsewhere).

Contact me with which book and quantity you would like to purchase (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I will quickly respond with a PayPal invoice that will also allow you to use a credit card. Since my mode of operation is creating and publishing books, not as much about actually selling these, I really have not put in place a way for you to immediately buy from this post. Maybe next year…
Let me know if you have any questions,
Also looking ahead: Developing a Creative Book workshop with Medium Photo, March, 19-22, 2020 in San Diego (workshop registration is now open & my 2019 book workshop did sell out…just saying)
