Good evening, dudes and lady dudes!
Steady progress continues toward the completion of The Perfect Girl Drinks Root Beer. I've broken my initial minimum word count of 72,000 words, and continue to move forward. The current page count (when formatted to a standard 5x8 book size) is approximately 250. It's a bit tricky to estimate what the final counts will be, but it's only up from here!
Keep an eye on your e-mail as I write nearer to completion--once I finish the first writing pass it's on to the next editing phase, at which point I'll be sending out the backer reward surveys. I'll be collecting information such as e-mail addresses, mailing addresses, and--if you donated to an applicable tier ($16 or higher)--what you'd like me to sign in your copy of the book. So if you'd like something very personalized scribbled in your paperback copy, keep it in mind!
Speaking of reward tiers and applicable donors, if you chipped in for $19 or more, I'm pleased to announce that the cover art for The Perfect Girl Drinks Root Beer is ready for public viewing! It's been added to the Artwork tab of my website, right here: http://www.timcodywrites.com/p/artwork.html. It's likely to go through minor alterations, but what you see there is about 95% complete.
Due to the amount of art I'm putting into this book to begin with, it's likely I'll forgo a cover art variant--so the five original works included on that page are the five up for grabs. If there should be a last minute addition, however (it's been known to happen!), I'll be sure to let everyone know for in case you'd like to change your decision at that time.
If you have any questions or comments, feel free to e-mail me at TimCody@TimCodyWrites.com. And, as always, if you're interested in the play-by-play, be sure to check out the official Perfect Girl Drinks Root Beer Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Perfect-Girl-Drinks-Root-Beer/314022918661622 (cleaner URL coming once I hit 30 Likes!)
Thanks, everyone! Onward and upward toward the end of the story!
