Ah, I'm feeling so much better today.
Formatting is mostly done. I'll be mailing out the Indie-Go-Go books tonight, while Smashwords is processing its version of the book. You guys are so awesome. So very, very awesome.
I'm looking at my finances, and it looks like I'll be able to do the last third of Dragon Breath. Barely. I can't make any promises, but that should work.
After that, things get kind of sticky.
The next thing on my schedule is Gray Prince. Its official release date will be December. BUT, and this is the could-be-cool part, you can pre-order it in November. Smashwords has set pre-orders up with Barnes and Noble, Apple, and a couple other retailers. Amazon is still being a shit about it, but that's Amazon. Our Daily Bread finishes its Select run this month, and I'll give the pre-order program a test run before A Promise Kept hits the shelves. How the pre-orders work is, you can order the book as soon as it's in the store, so technically it still releases in November. The orders don't get counted until the release date, which means if you guys buy, say, ten copies? All ten get credited on the release date. It'll give the book a nice little boost and THAT will help a lot.
That's the good news. The bad news is, I have no idea if I ll be able to afford the editing. At this point I would rather go without the editing than ask for money again. IF I do decide to run another indiegogo campaign, it'll be for Starbleached: Liberty, it'll be after the new year, and I'll give you guys an awful lot of warning. I'll know by the end of the month if I need to run with that.
Have I said how awesome you guys are yet this post? You have no idea how cool you are. Stay cool, my friends. Stay cool.
