Update #1

What's New - Early April

3 comments

Hi Everyone,

Thanks again for your support. Here are a few updates that I wanted everyone to know about!

1.) I've withdrawn the funds from Amazon, and a chunk is going towards the editing cost of the book. The editor has just finished and we are in the process of reviewing the final manuscript.

2.) Other parts of the fund are going towards the cover art, illustrations, and formatting costs. Of these, the cover art is done, illustrations are partially complete, and the formatting simply awaits the final manuscript!

3.) I've commissioned something extra special for you all, so when it is ready I'll be sending out an email request survey :-)

4.) At the rate we are going (The entire team plus myself) I'm going to estimate (Really estimate, not a yes definite but a probably) that we'll be ready by May sometime, early June at the absolute latest.

5.) For some more up to date comments and ideas, check out www.danielottalini.com for more up to date information.

I'll message again with another update in about two weeks (or sooner if anything big happens)

Thanks again for all your wonderful support! I couldn't do it without you!

- Daniel

      Hi all,

      1.) Yes, it will be coming out in Book (real book) format - through Createspace on Amazon (Not in a bookstore, but you can order a copy through Amazon)

      2.) I have a great team doing the things I have no talent in - illustration and editing (My own work at least, I can edit others!)

      - Streetlight Graphics (Glendon and Tabatha) did my cover art and are doing some inside the book illustrations. http://streetlightgraphics.com/ (They are also formatting my book for all different ebook types)

      - Scripta Word Editing Services has been editing my book (Marg Gilks is the person behind the curtain, she's done a bang-up job!) http://www.scripta-word-services.com/index.html

      - Finally, Chris Valentine over at http://coverartistry.com/ is doing a top-secret prize/reward for all you backers. you'll all get first dibs on it before anyone else can! Hope everyone likes posters :-)

      Sounds like you are making a lot of progress! Just out of curiosity would you be able to give us some information on the people that you are working with? I can't wait to read your novel!

      You GO Daniel! We are so very proud. Is this actually coming out in "book" form? I have forgotten!
