The books are printing!
Ok! So I've signed off on the proofs, and the dummy book, and the book is finally finally FINALLY going to print! I just got off the phone with the printers, and they said it will take 3 weeks for them to print the books. Then they send me one copy of each to look at and (fingers and toes crossed) approve. As long as everything checks out, they then ship the whole big load of books to my door. They're being shipped by boat, but since I'm in Japan it should only take about two weeks. Then I can then get them to all of YOU and we'll all sigh a sigh of relief in unison. I'm not taking any freelance work in April and May so that I can focus all my energy on getting everything signed, packaged, and shipped.
I don't think I'm going to be able to sleep until I've taken a look at the final printed and bound copy. I REALLY hope I'll have good news for you in three weeks. You all will be the FIRST to know.
To anyone reading this update who missed the Kickstarter, once I've sent all of the rewards out, I'll start working on getting the book up for sale on my site, but that won't be for awhile.
