Mrs. Cornblossom Loves You!
Thank you, thank you, thank you, one and all. And that includes almost a hundred friends, neighbors, and well-wishers who came together to help publish Missing: Mrs. Cornblossom. It has been a wonderful month for me—watching the project grow from a dream into a reality—and I am excited about the next phases: taking the book to press and sending out your rewards.
I've had fun tinkering with the manuscript and the layout during the past couple of weeks. The layout is complete. The cover has changed a bit; now it has a nice border around it. The book will be published by Quarrier Press in Charleston.
It will go to the printer sometime next week, probably, and should be finished by mid- to late July. Between now and then, I will be sending out Kickstarter surveys to my backers so that I can collect your addresses for sending rewards.
Again, my deep gratitude goes out to every one of you.
