Default Sculptural flower bead tutorial- lily, orchid, aster

Well, I wrote my first ever big tutorial and donated a copy of it, along with an orchid an an aster made using the directions, to the ISGB for their auction on ebay. The auction ended, but now the tutorial by itself is for sale in my etsy shop for $16.
It is over thirty pages long, with lots of pictures, and includes instructions for four different flowers- an orchid, an aster, a simple iris, and a big fancy orchid. Here's my etsy shop:

Well, no one replied to this, but someone did bid! Thanks, whoever you are. There's less than a day left before the auction ends.

Didn't see this until the auction had closed The bead was beautiful, so I'm sorry that I missed the chance to bid on it.

When is the tutorial going to be available?

Barbara, glad to know who won it. ISGB should be sending me your info to email you the two pdfs. They have the flowers to send you. The tut will be available in my shop this evening.

OK, so what's different about this tut? Everything is built right on your base bead- no pulling petals in advance. I tell how to make four different flowers, including how to make a simple ribbon cane to use for two of them. I feel like there is a lot of information- after all, I go on for more than 30 pages!
I don't have any feedback to show you yet from folks who've tried it...
What more do you want to know???? There are pictures of some of the finished flowers in my etsy shop as I have some for sale there.

Thank you for the wonderful tutorial, these are going to be great fun to make....
Just to say all good things about this tut...
This is 4 tuts in one... Great value for the cost...
This is a well written tut, easy to understand, with lots of great pictures...
The lady slipper orchid by it's self is worth getting this tut...

I'm off to give it a go...

Great tutorial! Love the fact of getting 4 different sculptural flowers in one tut! Not only the 4 flowers, but ribbon cane also! I love the iris tutorial. I have a special fondness for irises. They were my wedding flower ;o) Thanks so much for the hard work!

Okey dokey- so a lot of people have looked at this thread, but very few have actually bought the tut. So my question is- what would make you think about buying this tut? Lower price? Like how much lower? If I lower the price, I will refund any difference to the folks who have purchased it, just to be fair.
Does it not look interesting enough? Maybe everyone has been 'flowered out'?
Is it because I'm fairly unknown? I have gotten a little bit of good feedback, so I'm thinking it is pretty well done.
Something I'm not thinking of?
Anyway, since I put so much energy into it, I'd love it to get some action.
Thanks for your ideas!
