This is such a great feeling ... seeing these books arrive.
Guess which Kickstarter backer will get his copy first? That would be (drum roll, please....) Mitch Roberts - the guitar player for Lust Control. I will hand deliver his copy tonight at band rehearsal. The rest of y'all will get your copies mailed out tomorrow (Lord willin' and if I have your mailing address turned in already), except for Chad Sides, who backed the project at the level that involves 10 copies and a personal visit. I'll be bringing him his ten copies to Atlanta this weekend, where I'll talk to a group he has gathered.
Thanks again, everyone, for supporting this project. I will click on a button over at lulu.com that will make this book go "live" to retailers everywhere. The process might take some time, but anyone at any retailer will be able to pull it up on their computers and order one, which'll print and ship direct to that store. Spread the word for those of you that have friends that prefer the retail experience (there's also mail-order direct from me at HMmag.com).
