About three weeks ago, I finished up my changes and sent them to my editor. It then went to the publisher for layout and final review. So, from my standpoint, the book is pretty much done.
The good news: the publisher worked with the printer to get a limited print run done for AC! I don't know the final details (I haven't even seen it myself!), but it should appear on the SofaWolf Press table.
The other news: The printer is only doing a limited print run since we have such a short turnaround time. We're scheduled to put in for the full print run at the end of this month. It sounds like there will be a few minor tweaks (the editor got some late feedback from people and the publisher/photographer wants to redo the back cover picture).
Preorder copies will be from the full print run. I'll be mailing those out basically as soon as I get them.
I haven't even seen the AC version! I hope it's as good as I'm picturing... Someone at the con, let me know, won't you? Please? :) I'm surprisingly nervous! I think it's because it's basically out of my paws at this point. Plus, not being at AC, I won't be able to gauge the reaction.
*fret* *fret* I hope people like it... I hope the print quality is nice... I hope people understand the delays... I hope the interviewees like how I edited it... I hope...
