Thanks for letting me know! Do you mean like, ten months from now for a potential publish date, or ten months from now to get started on the edit and packaging process? Also just generally wondering when I can start jamming with my cover illustrator and getting the ball rolling!

Elena says it’ll be a few months (about ten, to be precise - they’re pretty backed up) to get to publication, but once you’ve confirmed by email that you want to be added to Quill (after they email you and you email back), that serves as your contract. :-)

Anybody else have any updates on this/advice? I’m in a similar holding pattern! Reached Quill a little over 2 weeks ago and I emailed Hello(at)Inkshares, but just wondering what the next steps are. I haven’t gotten a contract either, but my page also turned to "In Production." I’d love to get the ball rolling!

I thought so! So maybe that one was just him missing something...

...preorders are charged on the day they’re made. At least, that is always how it’s been for me.

Thanks!! I’m going to email Inkshares tomorrow - obviously the page has changed and become live, but I haven’t been contacted or properly signed a contract yet, and I don’t think anyone’s been charged for their pre-orders yet (or so says my husband, checking on his). Interesting - though I imagine it’s my responsibility to reach out?

Thanks, Amanda! After some poking around, I also found this really nice breakdown of the timeline to publishing, on the blog - might be helpful for other people?   :-)

Congrats! Email hello [at] inkshares [dot] com and ask about your next steps. They’ll take good care of you.

Essentially that - my book just hit the 250 (257, in fact!) goal over the weekend, and now that the shrieking and scaring the cat is done - so what’s the next step? Do I reach out to Inkshares, or do they send me something? How/when do we actually sign the contract for Quill publication? Thanks! :-)
