Wanted to send an update since we're nearing the end of June, which was the estimated ship month for those of you getting eBooks. My editor and I have spent the last few weeks shining-up the final manuscript, and as of this morning I got word that we're done with that phase.
Stay tuned for a survey to get your delivery information, etc. Thanks for your support and patience. :)
We did it!
Or more precisely, you all did it. GUESSWORK has blown away its $1000 goal in only five days. That means that a hardcover "Advanced Reader Copy" is on its way to production and ultimately the hands of reviewers. It also means everyone will be getting their rewards. Excellent!
Now for the stretch goal...
After doing a little research and negotiation, I've identified the next big marketing item that'll get GUESSWORK to a larger audience: an Audiobook version! So starting now, if we can reach the uber-ambitious stretch goal of $4000, everyone at the $15 donation level and above will also receive a DRM-free MP3 audiobook.
So please spread the word!
Super big thanks to everyone who's contributed so far. :D
