More tired lazy typing on my part perhaps.
The book is published and has sold some copies. I have a box of them with me now. What I am giving up on is the ebook version, so I made my book available as a pdf...
My frustrations are more do do with the publishing company and their hidden charges and lack of flexibility, and their awful publishing tools, but they are probably the best of a bad bunch. Money isnt really the issue, it comes and goes, its not so important to me, if I am warm and sheltered, fed and watered I am doing something right, remember folk I have been on the road for over 10 years now, having no money is a way of life, I seem to get by.. its just hard to invest in something that requires cash when you dont have any!
I know a few published authors, and they all complain about the publishing houses and lack of royalties, so it was never an option for me. The book is out in the world, it will do what it does..
I will teach yoga if the opportunity arises, but I am not so keen to do so in the UK for many reasons I would rather not go into here. if the situation arises I will offer my help if its asked for. I am not actively seeking to get involved in yoga here, and I am actively seeking a way off the island, so hopefully not in the future either
This has been an interesting social experiment on some levels. I know a couple of people who claim to be 'into' yoga and have talked about wanting a copy of my book, they are both well off financially and both have now said that they have 'no money', even asking for a free copies. I have other friends who I know have little cash, and they are waiting till pay day to buy the book when I know they cant really afford it, and they have declined my offer of a free copy as they want to help me out. Funny lot us folk arent we? In general the people who complain about having no money are the ones who really mean they dont like to spend it.
All good folk, sorry if I sounded a little down, I guess I am, but more frustration than any serious life issues, I am well, carving wood (have some nice apple and walnut woods to play with), playing with chainsaws and screaming at my computer ! :)
I will stick an advert for my book down at the end of my hatha yoga notes, somewhere in the mist below, it will be in the right place there.
