We've concluded that there is simply not enough interest in Watch Tower history to continue this project. We may continue to work on volume two in a very low-key, desultory way. But this project is dropping off our list of priorities.
This may upset a few people, but not many. We've based this on book sales, lack of comments on this blog, and some issues we wont address here in detail. If people cared about our work, they'd comment on this blog. Except for the same four or five people, no one does. I've worked to keep this blog interesting, but the return on that has been very poor.
Perhaps I've expected too much. But it seems to me that a few informed comments and questions are not an unreasonable expectation if there is real interest.
I note that an ebay seller is trying to sell our book for eighty dollars. She has four watchers. You can buy A Separate Identity new for $27.50. It seems a waste to buy for eighty dollars what you can buy for thirty. Life is interesting, no?
We won't publish an ebook at this time. If you were waiting for one, I'm sorry. Publishing it for sale on Amazon and the other ebook sellers takes formatting stills neither of us have, and, given the lack of interest, it is a waste of time to learn the skills.
Over the course of this project we've met some lovely people and some I could have lived forever without encountering and be happier for it. We had one person try to take control of the project. He maintains his interest but goes back-door to contact us. We had three or four gain access to our private blog and steal photos and text from it. We share our documentation freely (with the exception of a few items we promised the owner not to share), but some of those who've taken from us refused in turn to share. I can't account for that. But mostly those who have commented here have been really nice to us. I'm pleased.
