New Forno Bravo Forum Feature

Forno Bravo Forum Community,

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

                Re: Another impoverished author.

                Congratulations on all this, Al. Forum members might be interested in my own contribution to WFO lore. It's called Tools Are Made, Born Are Hands: Baking True Artisan Breads in a Wood-Fired Oven. It's the result of many years teaching WFO workshops. The cover design is by Frankie Giovanni.

                Because of the number of photographs used to illustrate the various techniques covered, the file is much too large (40 MB) for Kindle. However, the e-book version is available on my website, :: Mary G's Artisan Breads :: Traditional wood-fired brick-oven breads made to uncompromising gourmet standards, as a pdf. You can download it to your computer after I transmit it via YouSendIt. The paperback version is available on Amazon.com, Amazon.com: Tools are made, Born Are Hands. jim wills: Books, or just search the title. You'll find reader reviews and a lot more information about the contents on Amazon. Hope everyone finds it useful.

                    Re: Another impoverished author.

                    Thanks, Al. We'll see. It's a POD title, currently selling something like 36 a month as a paperback. Should have clarified in my original post, the "Look Inside This Book" tag on the thumbnail only works on the Amazon site. Apologies for any confusion.

                      An update.
                      I am selling around 60 books per month on Amazon from the 4 books I have there, but so far I havent seen any money for them....

                      The barrel oven build book is quite often at number 1 in its category.

                      I speak with other Amazon book sellers on the sellers forum and they are stoked if they get their book to number 20,000ish in their category, whoops.
