It has been another exhausting month in what has turned out
to be a rather exhausting year for me. I don't know about you
guys, but I'm approaching 2004 with some eagerness, and with
a fistful of New Year's resolutions.
I'm going to be thinner, fitter, sharper, and a better person
all round next year. I'm going to make better decisions, spend
less time worrying, and more time with my children. I will pray
more, eat less, fight more, and fret less. That's the plan anyway.
One recent cause of anxiety of course was the rather unlucky
failure of my book buy-up day. By virtue of an unfortunate error
on the Barnes & Nobel site, the book was declared
'sold out' within half an hour of the time designated for
the buy-up to begin!
I know that some of you were confused by my email that followed
this stuff-up. Let me try to make the situation clear.
1. I will be having another go at getting into
the Amazon.com best-seller list. The Amazon book buy-up is being
rescheduled for the end of January. Don't worry. I'll
give you plenty of notice this time as to the exact date.
2. Anybody who did successfully purchase the book from Barnes
& Noble on December 7th is entitled to the full package
of bonus gifts. Some of you evidently have not collected
these. Just send an email (with your receipt attached) to fatherdave_SRE@wtresponders.com.
If you're having trouble working out how to do it, just email
Now, let me add one more thing. Since I still have the bonus
page up, I have decided to give my subscribers one last chance
of grabbing the whole pile of bonuses by purchasing the book
right now. OK. Maybe I'm an idiot, but it is Christmas!
Here's the deal: Between now and Christmas, if you did not
already take advantage of the book buy-up deal and collect your
$250 worth of bonuses, you can do so right now. I won't go through
the list of bonuses again (if you don't know, you can read the
or send an email to SRE@fatherdave.org).
There are a few conditions:
- You must buy the book from either of these two places: www.fightshop.biz (if you're in Australia)
or from www.1stbooks.com
(if you're anywhere else).
- You must send the receipt to: fatherdave_SRE@wtresponders.com
- You must do it all before December 25th, after which
date I will definitely take down the special download page.
So please, go ahead and order your copy of the book now if
you haven't done so already, and you should still receive the
book before Christmas. But please, don't tell your mailing
lists about this. This is purely an offer for my existing Newsletter
You can let your mailing list buddies know when we do the
Amazon buy-up at the end of January. This way, you'll have already
read the book, and you'll know whether you can recommend it with
In the meantime, I'm hoping that plenty of you will use the
free holiday (that you get when you purchase the book) to come
down to Binacrombi Bush Camp and join us over January.
My family heads down there on December 27th, and we want as
many as possible to come and pray in the New Year with us.
The booking number is on the voucher, and there are still a couple
of cabins available as of now (but don't delay).
I look forward to spending some real time with you real soon.
And I'll be taking my fight gear with me, so there should be
lots of opportunities for us to have a good 'bush bash'
if you're keen!
Yours in the Good Fight,
P.S. The book is now up on Amazon (at long last). I'd be very grateful
if people who have read the book would write a review
on the main Amazon page (and please send me a copy).
