Lest Our Passage Be Forgotten & Other Stories drops tomorrow!
I’ve been hard at work behind the scenes getting my short story collection, Lest Our Passage Be Forgotten & Other Stories, ready for delivery. The release date is tomorrow. Tomorrow!
It’s all been a blur since I ran the Kickstarter last December. Writing the stories, getting them edited, getting the entire story collection line edited, layout, covers, interior art. Oy vey, it’s been a busy time—an exciting time!—and it’s not over yet, but tomorrow marks a major milestone in the release process. It’s the general release for the e-versions. I’m ecstatic to have reached this stage. I can’t wait for the patient Kickstarter gang to get their hands on it, and for others to grab it if they’ve been waiting.
On the print side, the files were submitted to the printer last night. There’s some time while they check the accuracy of the cover and interior files, then I approve the proof copy, and then it’s off to the races. I get print copies and start fulfilling those for the Kickstarter and begin offering them for sale on Amazon, B&N, and elsewhere.
One extra step in the print process will be the limited edition hardcovers. I’m waiting for the trade paperback process to complete so that I catch all possible errors before moving onto the limited edition version. I want them to be perfect (or as near to that ideal as I can make them). They’re going to look sharp, let me tell you. The cover turned out great, as did the interior with the art from Evgeni Maloshenkov.
More news tomorrow!
