We still have consistent progress. The publication date has been pushed back.
- The Intro, Chapter 1, Chapter 2 are now ready for review by pre-order purchasers. This group will receive a separate email with information.
- Chapter 3, 4, 5 are on deck and should be ready for review sometime in mid-March. I will notify the pre-order purchasers as the chapters become available.
- Chapter 6 and 7 require significant rewrite and reorganization. These chapters will be April’s project.
- We have a publisher! The book will be published through Atmosphere Press. This is a service publisher. They are taking the burden of project managing, figuring out layout and graphics (and sourcing people to help me with that), and the odds and ends of navigating book production off my hands. They are also going to provide editorial help.
A HUGE thank you to the pre-order folks who took a risk on me writing this book. Your funds are going towards making sure you get a real book that is more engaging than a peer-reviewed research paper.
I’m the bottle-neck in this project. Writing has not gone as quickly as I had hoped (of course). Also, this is the first time I have done this, so I am unclear on appropriate time estimates.
I’m now targeting late 2019 for publication to allow time for editorial review and drafts and better ensure quality.
I will get more specific with the date as I see how this process unfolds.
Thank you to everyone who has been supporting me through this process — financially, emotionally, and intellectually.
