Just minutes away . . .

Well, I still don't have a firm release date for Post, but I have some great news. Today I received and approved the final corrections made to the manuscript and cover. The whole thing looks really good and professional. And I like how my basic design in Word has turned into something better-looking than anything I could have imagined.

As far as timeline goes, copies of the book should be available in the next three or four weeks. I don't know if any stores will carry this right away, but you will be able to order copies from Amazon, as well as Barnes & Noble's and Books-A-Million's online store. I don't know about pre-orders just yet. I will post links as soon as they're online.

Currently, there are no plans for a book release party or in-store signing. I'm up for doing them, but I'd prefer to wait and hold a copy of the book in my hand before I do anything more. Review copies will be sent out to a number of writers that I have talked to over the last four and a half years. I've been in contact with these writers not in hopes that I will get a glowing review or any review at all. If anything, I just wanted to show these people that I finished the book and it's out there. Plus, I want these people to read it because it's up their alley. On top of that (and most importantly), a lot of these people I consider friends and want to remain friends with them whether they love the book or hate it.

I don't know when the next book update will be, but hopefully it will be soon. Until then, it's brainstorming more stuff for Book #2.
