I just wrote the formal instructions for this contributed idea (based on my prior test performances.) It is one of the best ideas to date. Seeing it in print, makes me kind of anxious to finally release Secrets of the Masters. The thing is that there are so many more “Secrets” to go. One option I am considering, is breaking up Secrets of the Masters into several, more manageable, supplements.

So, I decided to break up “Secrets of the Masters” to make it easier to publish.

I plan to do several volumes, each containing 7 solid secrets.

The working title for the first volume will be “Secrets of the Masters Vol. 1” (a Google search revealed 198,000,000 hits for “7 Secrets,” and, at the moment, I feel no particular need to make it 198,000,001.)

I already selected the seven secrets for volume one, and copy/pasted them into a separate file.

That leaves some really great secrets for volume 2, but that’s the point of breaking things up.

In any case, the secrets in Volume One are rock solid…especially the last one, which is really, really good.

So, all that’s left to do for volume one is editing, the introduction, the Thank You section, contacting the people who I intend to put in the Thank You section, updating my mailing list and sending it out.

It shouldn’t be more than a week or two.

Thanks Mauricio. It just so happens that one of the ideas you sent me was selected for volume one.

Thanks again,

Earlier today, I took some photos to make it easy to learn a very important billet move. I just put the photos in the document.

All that’s left is editing. I should have that done either today or Sunday. It looks like this will be ready for release much earlier than I originally planned.

I think you, especially, will like it very much, Dave.

Just finished self editing. Gotta convert to pdf, add it to the original file and update the bookmarks.

Just sent out a bunch of them, but I managed to exceed the google mail limit. I need to see if I can get around it or use another account or something. I have about 50% to go.

I tried cutting the size of the second mailing, but Google already seems to have locked my sending rights.

At this point, only about half the supplements went out. For the most part, the mailing list was in chronological order, so the early purchasers got it, but the email to the more recent purchasers was blocked by Gmail.

Hopefully, I will have access to my Gmail account on Sunday, so I can send out the rest.

Sorry about the technical difficulties. I have to find a better way to distribute these files...

Now I feel like they just changed the date of Christmass.

The wait will be worth it though.

I remember someone mentioned something about a free file distribution service, but, unfortunately, don’t remember any specifics. Does anyone have any thoughts on how I might get the rest of the books out?

I suppose, in a worst case scenario, it won’t be more than a day or two before gmail restores my access.

http://senduit.com is good, but temporary. The file will only last for a week, but in the interim might be worth considering?
