I just got back the first complete version of Carbon Zero from the folks at OPEN. I am going to send it out first thing tomorrow morning.
Please note that this is a draft, still, and I would very much welcome feedback and reactions (firstname.lastname@example.org is an easy address to reach me at...). In other words, there will probably be one more iteration before it's made public, and if you see a way to make it better before then, please let me know!
Thank you so much for your continuing support, encouragement and understanding. I hope you'll be please with the results.
So, I just got off the phone with Scott Stowell of OPEN, and I am pleased to be able to share with you an actual ship date of September 28th, 2012. Copies of Carbon Zero will go out electronically then.
The initial release will be a PDF; a Kindle-/iPad-friendly version will follow the next week or so afterwards. Other rewards will go out about the same time, except for the poster, which will take printing.
To say that I'm pleased to finally be able to share this book with you would be a profound understatement. I really, really appreciate the incredible support you've all shown in this process.
Thank you, again. I hope the next time you hear from me, it's a note telling you to check your email! :)
