Great news! I spoke with the printer this morning and the books are being loaded onto a truck right now. They should be here by Monday at the latest which means that patron’s should have their orders by the end of next week and pre-orders will ship out right behind them. On the other hand, there’s a bit of bad news as well. There’s going to be a short delay before the companion book,The Fiddler’s Gun: Letters, is ready to ship to my Tier 2 Patrons. Don’t worry, though, they are coming, and frankly the book will be a significant enjoyment only after you’ve read The Fiddler’s Gun anyway, so it all works out in the end, right? It’s hard to believe this part of the process is nearly done. I scarcely know what to do with myself without the manuscript to edit, or the design to tweak. Ok, that’s not entirely true. I have the Kindle version to finish up, I started prepping for the audio book last night, and I’ve got a heck of a lot of promotion to do. And beyond all that, it’s time to pull out the draft of Fiddler’s Green, dust it off, and finish it up. In other words, it’s time to start the process all over for the next book and that’s a source of true excitement. I’ve learned a lot over the past year and I can’t wait to apply those lessons. There are also two or three other titles that should be forthcoming from the Rabbit Room Press this year and I’m anxious to dive into those projects and see what kind of great things we can make happen.
In the meantime, enjoy your copies of The Fiddler’s Gun, they’ll be in your hands soon. And remember to tell your friends and everyone else you know that they are available only at the Rabbit Room Store. If you’d like to read it with your book club, ask me about discounted pricing for bulk orders and if anyone is interested in doing an interview, or a review of the book, or has any other promotional ideas, don’t hesitate to contact me.
