Production and Delivery Update
Thanks so much to all of our backers for bringing The Hamthology to life!
Almost all edits are done on the stories/poems, of which there are nearly fifty. There are a few stories that still require editing, pushing the delivery date back. I am working directly with authors on these changes. I would rather take the extra time to ensure everything is polished than rush delivery and risk including errors in the final product. In my opinion, the extra time waiting is worth having a higher-quality collection. I hope everyone agrees with me on this philosophy, and I'm looking forward to delivering a highly polished collection as soon as possible.
The current timeline for delivery, given final story edits, copy-edits, galley proof, format conversion, Amazon file verification, printing, and shipping time should be three weeks optimistically or four weeks conservatively, unless significant problems arise during any of these phases. If there are any additional delays, I'll post an update here to keep everyone in the loop. But assuming all goes well, rewards should go out in early March.
I am really looking forward to delivering The Hamthology! Thanks everyone for all your support, and for making The Hamthology possible!
