Thank you so much everyone!
Not sure yet how the funds will be distributed. I still have some photos to look at and possibly license, plus haven't yet worked out fees for editor/cover/layout and for photos already submitted. Check back here (I can't tell if this update is automatically mailed to you or not) for news. I'll post all activity as I move forward.
Can't yet determine when the book will be published. Much of the work ahead is somewhat painstaking and time consuming and the last thing I want to do is rush. However, I'm as anxious as possible to see the finished book so I'll push, gently.
Once the book goes to final press, I'll send a full accounting of the funds to you. Every cent will be spent to insure a good page-turner. And if it isn't a good page-turner I'll make sure it's really heavy so at least it'll feel...important.
