BOOK TWO PRE-SALES HAVE STARTED! (Update x3)
I'm finally close enough to the end of the first draft that it's time to start getting money together for Nettah the Edittah. There are two packages this year, the Paperback Presale Package and the Ebook Presale Package. They contain all the goodies from last time:
- An autographed paperback (except the ebook-only package)
- All four ebook formats
- Your name (however you'd like it) in the acknowledgments
- ...and the biggie: The unformatted doc file within 24 hours of its completion. That's right, you'll get the manuscript before anyone else does--before it's even been turned into an ebook--as soon as editor Annetta Ribken and I decide it's done.
The PPP is $50; the EPP is $25. If you're getting the PPP and you're outside the States, it breaks my heart but I'm going to have to charge you an extra $10. Shipping nearly killed me last time.
Last time you wonderful people funded the entire production of Lovers and Beloveds: IHGK Book One--the editing, the cover design and the typography. I'm hoping we can do that again this time.
I decided not to use Kickstarter; the fees are too high. I'm thinking I might Kickstart the map poster project, if only to spread the word about the entire History.
Thank you in advance for your support of the History. You guys are the ones who made this necessary -- er, possible --and I love every one of you more than you'll ever know.
Update: If you're an international buyer and couldn't get the surcharge link to work, that's fixed now. Sorry! Thanks to lowercaserho for troubleshooting that with me.
We're already 20% of the way to the first editing goal!
Update 2: Now 25% of the way. By request there's also a new option: Paperback set of book two AND book one and all the other good stuff.
Update 3: As of 9/23/11, we've raised the money for the first editing round. Huzzay! If you know other readers who did the pre-sale last time, you might want to drop a word in their ears; even though I've reached out in a dozen different ways, not everyone has heard.
