greaterthanthesword's latest update for The Kingdom of Heaven

Nov 23, 2022

Hello all.

Here’s an update on the status of the Kingdom of Heaven project. I’m sorry to say that I am not going to reach my goal of 750 pre-orders. Orders have plateaued and I can’t afford the level of advertising I would need to find 650 more backers. Additionally, I have had some personal struggles that have prevented me from being fully active during the critical early stages of the funding.

Here’s what’s going to happen next: The project will be allowed to expire on Monday, November 28, 2022, and all of the backers will be refunded at that time.

Don’t worry though- this is only a small setback! As Yoda said, "Do or do not- There is no try." So, I will publish this book.

I am still at work doing final edits on the draft. However, if everything goes favorably, I expect to send out Reader Advance Copies by Jan 1, 2023, and I hope to have the book available for purchase by May 1.

I have collected the email address of everyone who pre-ordered and will continue to update you about the status of the book. The Inkshares book page will no longer be available on Monday Nov 28. Instead, I will set up a page on my own personal web site, which I will send another email about.

Thank you so much for supporting me on this project. Stay tuned - I’m not giving up!
