I made some mistakes. First-time author ones, but real mistakes, nonetheless.
First of all, I underestimated how long it takes to write a book, especially when you have other obligations to attend to and it's an ambitious book in the first place. Secondly, I conveyed said underestimation to you, my lovely backers, in the time frame I provided. Thirdly, I neglected to post any updates for many months.
I apologize for all of that.
The good news is that I'm working on it and I hope to be done within the next 4 weeks. After that, it will take about 3 months for my publisher to get things done with the printing and editing and such; following that, I will email and mail out copies.
Again, my sincerest apologies as an author. I treasure and appreciate the fact that all of you believed in me, and I hope that delays will not sour your appreciation of the final product.
