I am SO excited- I just got a call from the printer today, the books are finished! The final payment has been made and the books are on their way to me, which means soon they'll be on their way to YOU!
And, since apparently I somehow managed to forget to post these, take a look at the proofs! These are unbound proofs, which are maybe not quite as exciting to look at as bound proofs, but made it easy to go through them carefully. A few things had to be fixed (including centering the cover art), but they were pretty minor overall.
I just finished reviewing the final draft of the book- which means we're finally off to the printers. Yay! We had a few technical difficulties, which is why it took a month and a half to get here instead of a week like I had thought, but in any case we're here now and there's no going back! I, personally, am very very ready to see a physical book, and I'm sure you all are, too. In the meantime...
We're still working out the kinks with the downloadable book, but I hope to have a preview link (a full high-res e-version, but which is not downloadable) available soon. Hopefully the downloadable version will be ready shortly after that, which will also mean e-book versions available for sale! I intend to make the e-book available on Kindle, Nook, and iBooks. If there are any other venues you would like me to consider, please contact me with more information.
