Editor note: Weaver has taken a simple idea based on a holiday and put together a package with a reasonable price ($30). Now he makes it a digital download so he doesn't have to have books in inventory and he doesn't have to ship anything.
He just sits back and let's his web site do all the heavy lifting. All he has to do is promote the book and web site through radio shows, press releases and personal appearances.
