The book is in the home stretches now: I’ve just approved the 50,000 word milestone of the manuscript. We’re within reaching distance of our 65K goal! After that, we’ll still have a round of revision & polishing to do, and then I have to shift gears and start shopping the book with publishers.
I’d like to take this opportunity to announce that I’m planning to release an early pre-publisher edition of the book in PDF format to all of my backers, as a thank-you for your support! I am confident we’ll have that to you before the end of the year. I’ll still issue a final published edition of the ebook to all backers as well, once we have a published edition. It’s possible the book will go through a title-change and revisions when it’s published, so you’ll have an exclusive sneak preview copy before anyone else does.
I cannot yet say when we’ll have print copies of the novel, since it is hard to predict how long it’ll take to get it published. I’m going to attempt traditional publishing before considering fallback plans to self-publish.
Best wishes, and on to 65K!
