I wrote a novel! And I wanted to try a fun way to distribute it. The book is called The Collective. This is Andrew vs. The Collective.
98 backers pledged $2,913 to help bring this project to life.

The books are ordered! (And a surprise!)

I've got a screenshot to share with you guys: It's the thumbnail from my Lulu order form for the final printed copies of Andrew vs. The Collective. I finally finished off the formatting this weekend and, both eyes squeezed tightly shut, pressed the order button.

Now I've got a secret to share with you guys: It's the number of books I ordered. 100 copies of The Collective and 100 copies of Andrew vs. The Collective. Wait, what? The same number of both? Well, when I did my cost modeling for the project way back in January I had assumed I would just have enough money to give copies of the short stories book to the highest-contributing backers. But, much to my surprise, a little surplus appeared on my spreadsheet. Which means: everybody gets a physical copy of Andrew vs. The Collective!

So I'm awaiting the shipment and then your copies will go out after that. For Bay Area residents, I'll probably be arranging a drinks-and-distribution event if you want to obtain your books in person. Details to come.

      I think it is worth the drive to pick mine up....more details please!
      Also, will you be running another batch? I was hoping to buy some as Christmas presents.
      And, to echo Dan below, I too am having withdrawals, I am craving Pizza in Kathmandu.

      Thanks for the update! I must admit, I'm having Andrew vs The Collective withdrawal. I find myself walking around the street as Friday noon approaches giving people sentences or settings and expecting them to entertain me with clever tales.
