We made it! Funded!!
Wow, just checking in and I can hardly believe it - WE ARE FUNDED!
Thank you, all of you. I'm looking forward to bringing this book into your mailboxes and homes very soon.
Further to my last update - the personal issue I am dealing with is a sudden death in the family. I've been spending a lot of time with family and also helping to organise a funeral. (I didn't want say online exactly what had happened yesterday as we still hadn't informed all family and friends.) My wife and I are okay, and I know most if not all of you will want to wish us and our family your sympathies and good wishes at this time - so thank you in advance for that.
There may be a delay of a few days in getting print production of the book started after the Kickstarter ends, but I should be getting back up to speed next week. Thank you all again.
