I finally have a release date for the book: February 25, 2014! Now, there is a nifty little countdown timer on the website just in case you want to know exactly how many days, hours, minutes, and seconds until you can purchase your very own copy.
Hopefully, there will not be any unforeseen circumstances with the printing and formatting that would hinder this plan. If that were to happen, I would let you know immediately. Right after I passed out.
I’m kidding. It would most likely be a stroke.
Be that as it may, here I am, busily editing and typing away, oblivious to the fact that there is an actual world out there. I plan on taking at least one day next week to relax my brain. Right now, that is not an option. I’ll join the living when the book is out of my hands. The print version at least. I found this article the other day on how much typesetters go through to format a book properly, and after a bit of anxiety I showed it to Jason, who promptly informed me that he was completely aware and experienced with at least 28 of these 32 items. Oddly comforting, and I feel so very lucky to have his help through all of this. Without him, I’d be praying for some magic beans right about now.
But, again, I must thank you, dear readers, for your unending support and encouragement throughout this entire process. You are the reason I’m here. Seriously. That’s not some cliche I’m throwing around just for the sake of something to say. J.K. Rowling said it best, I think. As long as someone is listening, I’ll always have a story to tell.
