Hello everyone! My hometown newspaper did a little article about the project, which you can check out here if you like:

Also, the final revisions have been completed - this means the book is FINALLY ready to go to print, hooray! We're testing out the .pdf version right now, too (it's a little different from the one that will be sent to the printers), so I should have that available sometime in the next few days. Please look forward to it!

I know a few of the artists are also backers, so to Losing Altitude artists:

A local newspaper in my hometown wants to do an article about the book, and would like to find a couple of artists willing to comment on it.

Anyways, if you’re interested in speaking to a reporter about the book, shoot me an email at animus.panthera@gmail.com. If you’d like, I can send you the latest revision copy of the book, so you can take a look at the whole thing together before you have to say anything about it!

Last revision- done!

Excellent news, everyone! I just went through the final revision last night- there are just a handful of minor fixes to make, then it's DONE and ready to go to print!

Quick update!

I just got the fully revised text to Whale Works! It took a little longer than I had hoped- mostly due to a lot of overtime at work- but with the help of a good friend I got it all done tonight! I have to update the bibliography a little still, and write a few extra paragraphs for currently-blank pages, but that should be fast (and my helpful friend is also a super-fast copy editor, so she'll help me get it right the first time!). So, there will probably be one or two more revisions, and then it will be time to get the PDF version out and go to the printers!

Almost there!

Just tonight I finished making my way through the last of the edits! I've still got to do one final read-through, and there's a few spots where I've got to add a paragraph. Once those are done it will be ready to send off to Whale Works so that she can finish getting it ready for print!
