Hello friends and supporters!
I mentioned this briefly in my last update for Tantalus Depths, but I don’t think I actually shared it in a Proteus update, so I’m amending that now. We’ve received one more extension for Proteus, making our new deadline the end of August. I didn’t want to do it, but with about 270 orders left to go, there was no chance I’d hit the goal otherwise. With our new extension, we should have no problem hitting the 750 pre-order goal on time though. We’re almost two thirds of the way there, so with your help, we should definitely be able to do it!
In other news, the amazing Jacqui Castle just interviewed me for Writing Bloc. We discussed the merits of crowdfunding and worldbuilding, and I shared a few insights about the writing process for both Tantalus Depths and Proteus. Check it out here!
I got notes that the download link didn’t work for some and that others didn’t get an update at all. If the download link didn’t work for you, please send me a message or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are just receiving this update and have no idea what I’m talking about, I sent the raw manuscript out to supporters yesterday as a preview to the finished book. I you would like the raw manuscript and did no receive a download link, please follow the directions above!
Thank you so much for supporting The Living God. We are close to the release of the book (September 4th for supporters), where the fully edited and produced version will be in your hands. In the mean time, though, I’d like to share with you the version of the manuscript that was turned in before copy-editing. This is an incomplete version of the book, but I’m giving it to you as a sneak peek for those who are eager to read it. If you do get a chance to read, please look over the errors as this version had not seen a copy editor yet. Also, please remember to review on Amazon and GoodReads!
Good morning everyone!
I’m so excited to tell you that we have a release date of September 4th, 2018 for Inkshares backers and a public release date of September 25th, 2018, right before my birthday!
I know you all have waited a long time, but we are finally in the home stretch. I’ll give you more updates along the way. I’ll also finally be reaching out to those of you owed a promotional item. I’ve been holding off on them, because for a while there I grew concerned over whether the book would stay with Inkshares or not.
To be honest, there wasn’t a lot of communication from the staff once I turned the manuscript over, and I began to ponder other publishing options do to fear that the book may not see the light of day without another avenue. So, I held off on spending money on the promotional items when backers could inevitably be refunded their money. However, now that publication is secured and I’m receiving more communication from Inkshares, the concern of having to find a new publisher has been alleviated and I can now begin filling those promotional items promised.
