      Hi Tom,

      There were some instances where the notorious spam filters must have gotten the attachments with the eBooks when we sent them out. I have sent you a direct email to coordinate a resend and thank you for letting me know.

      Hi Boris,

      yes, we are going to release the eBook version along with the hardcover and softcover versions to the backers in the same time frame. The book is now heading into the print run so we are on course for everything this month. :)

      I'm thinking of using this book as the textbook for a 2013 summer session one class I'm teaching on how to write genre fiction. The class runs May 20 to June 28. Will there be copies available by then for my double handful of students? Carnegie Mellon University course number 76264 Special Projects in Creative Writing: How to Write Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror.

      Hi Daryl and Andrew,
      I apologize for missing the comments posted here. I get notifications on the messages sent to the inbox but somehow did not get these until I came here today to post an update. I am posting an update today that will hopefully answer your questions. We were a little quiet over the holidays, as most folks tend to get very busy during that time, but we will be regularly posting again now that everyone is getting on track here in 2013.

      Almost 2 months since the last update. Please keep comm channels open... Delivery estimate was this month.

      Hey there, been a while since we've heard from you guys, and I was wondering if everything is still on track for the book to be finished/delivered next month. Really looking forward to this. Happy holidays!
