Risks and challenges

During these years of dedicated effort, learning and unlearning, I have become confident that I can offer this book to you with dignity. Although I have been 'laying out' books for some time now, this will be my first commercially printed piece. I still have much to learn. I am nearing end of a long journey and I ask you to join me in this final push to the summit.

The tasks of draft design and layout have been completed. Projected challenges to finish the project include:

1.) Funding production costs.

2.) Fulfilling mail orders. This can be an exponential challenge.
I extensively researched how to properly package and ship books in an economical manner; it is a task that will be carried out with utmost care and efficiency.
