Tiny Homes is in Bookstores!

Going to Hong Kong in November to print this book was the last stage of a 2-year project. I felt like I'd roped a steer, and was hanging on until it was down — until the book rolled off the presses. Now it's done, and has arrived (all the way by water, up the Mississippi to Gulfport, and thence only a few hundred miles by truck to the Tennessee warehouse). Whew! Two things:
Review Copy Dept.: If you are interested in a review copy, write us, giving type of media it might be reviewed in (newspaper, magazine, blog, website, etc.), and indicate readership. For electronic media, indicate daily viewers and page loads. Plus yr. address.
Note 1: We also have a spiffy electronic copy (the entire book) available for reviewers.
Note 2: Please give us email addresses of anyone you know who might write a review.
Shameless Commerce Dept.: You can get the book from us for a 25% discount through January 31st: http://www.shelterpub.com/_tiny_homes/tiny_homes_book.html
Also, you can get any 3 or more of our building books for a 40% discount: http://www.shelterpub.com/_ad/TH-sale.html
Proud Papa Department: this book has a glow, an aura, if that's possible. The printers (Paramount Printing, Hong Kong) did such a beautiful job. It's slowly sinking in that it's not only done, not only printed, but in bookstores. I gotta say I'm proud, being able to show the creativity and joy unique designs of the 150 or so builders in this book.

Thanks for letting us know. I considered asking for a review copy for my woodworking blog, but knew in my heart that this book was for me and I should buy it. I'll review it anyway. Cheers!

Lloyd, I ordered from Shelter Pub in December and didn't expect it till mid February. This morning my wife yelled to me, you have a package here from Bolinas, CA. What a surprise!. The weather here in New Jersey has been very warm for January and if it continues this weekend I'll be out in my shed sitting in a beach chair with a large amount of Guinness reading what I've waitied for for 2 years. Thanks, Uncle Leo.

Lloyd, I ordered my copies today. Copies, plural, because I always buy several to give as gifts.

I look forward to seeing the latest masterpiece and whatever comes next!

Love, love, love! Thank you so much for the idea and bringing it to fruition! Can't wait to sit down and partake of so much eye candy and soul ideas.

Just got the word that my book is waiting at home for me. I am literally itching all over in my cubicle, feeling cramped and civilized. Can't wait to get home to a new Kahn book, a cup of tea, and my dreams.

Thanks for keeping those dreams alive,
Isaac

I, too, was so surprised to get mine early last week, instead of February! So glad I pre-ordered ... and thanks to the "tiny" Tiny Homes book that came with it, my cat can read along on her very own tiny copy! Nice Job Well Done, LLoyd!!!

Thanks so much,
Stephanie (and Chloe-Belle cat)

Congratulations Lloyd! I've appreciated following your progress and sensing your passion for creating this book. We will be requesting a review copy for HOMEGROWN.org and hope to see you and your Tiny House presentation for Maker Faire Bay Area 2012.

I was totally surprised and pleased to receive my copy on Jan. 10. (And I happened to be home so I didn't have to go to the post office to get it!) Such a great book. This might sound corny but I think my consciousness is being re-awakened because I'm getting a sense of elation and inspiration I haven't felt for about 20 years. Lloyd, the world could do with a lot more people who think like you. Small is Beautiful!
