On January 28th, 2016, at 9:30 am Central Time in the U.S., I had to help Benny let go of his struggles and pain. As you know, I wrote Yesterday Was Weird in an attempt to cope with my grief and to explain what had happened to all of the people who loved that sweet little guy as much as I did.
The post exploded, and suddenly Benny was everywhere. You all jumped in with me to make the post into a storybook nine months ago, and after many hurdles and slow going... while today will be sad for me, it also marks a milestone: the book is nearly finished!!!
Lucas is working on the last 4 images, including the cover. Alisa and her team at Well-Done Design (http://well-donedesign.com) are doing the layout, typesetting, and getting everything ready for printing.
Most importantly... I've set up the surveys for you to give me your most current information! There's a service called BackerKit which helps me work around the Kickstarter problem of only allowing one survey to be sent. Backerkit allows you to update your orders, your addresses, and any other information right up until the day we lock everything down for shipping!
Check it out. It *should* be ready to go *right now*!
If you have any trouble, please let me know immediately.
Thanks again for all your patience! I'm letting other people pre-order copies of the book if they missed the Kickstarter, but your names will hold a place of honor in the printed book as Benny's Better Angels – the first to support and the most kind and patient group I've known in my life.
Thank you so much!
