The proof has been shipped. When that arrives, we’ll review it to make sure everything looks good, and then it’s release time.

The artwork is proceeding along for RAVELER as well. The target for that is mid August. As soon as it’s finished, we’ll be ready to release that book as well.

Just for kicks, here’s the SERVANT spread.

    Are you holding the ebook back because you want to simultaneously release it with the print book?

    If so, why?

    If not, why is the ebook required to wait for shipped paper?

  2. John Brown Says:

    Yes, I want to release them at the same time.

    One of the reasons is to so that when I do my smoking hot new release sale for newsletter readers, they will all have an option. Some of my readers don’t read ebooks :)

    The second is that my process is to complete the POD version and then format the interior for the ebook. I do this because I find errors in the paper proof that I don’t see on the screen. Doing it this way helps me not rush things to market and then have to do rework.

  3. JohnW Says:

    Surely the best way to proofread an ebook is on an ebook reader. You do have an ebook reader (like a Kindle or whatever), don’t you?

    I don’t see why you cannot have a new release sale on the ebook and on the print book, even if they have different release dates.

    John,

    I do view them on multiple ereaders as well. But you can ask any copy editor around–reviewing a manuscript in paper version is incredibly helpful. And I could have two separate promos, but part of the promo includes allowing those who want the paper version to get the ebook on Amazon for free. Furthermore, I am not keen on sending out multiple emails to my newsletter subscribers when I don’t need to.

    I appreciate your eagerness for the book. Curse will be available very soon.
