UPDATE: If you can, please spread the word in your various communities that presales are still open, but close TODAY AT MIDNIGHT. I just got a message from someone who didn't realize they were still open and almost missed out on getting one.
Presales come down at midnight, so if you've been putting it off, this is your last chance.
I'm going to take this opportunity to thank the presalers, AGAIN. I was going back through the presale folder, checking whether someone had gotten a package (she had), and realized that presales began in mid-February of 2009. More than a year ago.
Thank you not just for the financial support, but also for your patience. First-time novelists, apparently, always underestimate how long it takes to hammer a draft into a final book, and that was definitely the case with me.
Boy, do I have a story to tell about this book. No one in the press/blogosphere cares about some housewife self-publishing a fantasy book with lots of naughty bits. But this story? The story of a crowdfunded book? THAT, I think, I can get them interested in.
