I'm sure you're tired of apologies
I know there have been a lot of issues with the time frame. I could go on and on about why that is (illness, accidents, computer issues, and so on). Instead, I will make a solid promise:
If I do not submit the manuscript to Pitchstone Publishing by this fall, I will refund your money.
I hope to have it done sooner than that, but that is my pledge.
After I submit the manuscript, it will take 3-4 months for my publisher to get the book together (that's when you, a backer, will be receiving it), and then the book will be officially launched 3 months from then (when it will be for sale for the public).
I thank you all for your patience with me, and apologize again for the lack of updates.
