I just wanted to update you all with how the book is going. The ISBN number has been approved and registered, and we are waiting on the CIP number to be processed so that it can be put into the printing of the book. This may take anywhere from 10 to 14 additional days.
The copy edit revisions are taking a little longer than I had anticipated, however we’re still working hard to get the book out with minimal delays. I apologize for the delay, it is my first book and I underestimated the work at the copy edit stage. Due to scheduling and availabilities, the revisions will have to wait one more week before a final revision of the latest updates can be reviewed. This is very valuable to make the manuscript the best possible. I don’t want to send you a book that could have been better. But rest assured that I am putting in, literally, 14-16 hour days to make sure we stay as close to the projected release as we can. If all goes to plan, the book will be revised and re-formatted with the new changes by the time the CIP number is processed. It will then get sent to print, and approximately 2-3 weeks later sent to the distributors who will have it shipped out to you within 48 to 72 hours.
Please note, I have kept the address update option available to you. So if you are concerned about address changes, it is still possible to update your address. I will send an update message with 48 hour notice of when I will close the option to make an address change. I am leaving it open until the book is close to being shipped out from the printers.
Thank you so much for your support and patience. I feel these revisions are important and make the book stronger! I appreciate that you are excited for the book, I am also so excited to get it to you!
p.s. There is also some amazing news to come, which I will post very soon!
