Proof copies have arrived

Proof copies (that I ordered ~10 days ago) have arrived.

First off, they look amazing!

Second, I am now hard at work, reading through all ~1,500 pages, word by word, looking for typos, spelling errors, any thing that needs to be corrected with a last minute editorial change, etc.

    Any chance you’ll be going to PorcFest?

    • Travis J I Corcoran says:

      A fine question!

      Unfortunately between working multiple jobs, adopting three kids, and managing a farm, I don’t get time in my schedule for PorcFest.

      That said, in 2018 I might try to sneak up for a day or two. …and I might even bring some hardcopies of the books to sell !

    Hey, will you be selling the ebook on Amazon at any point?

    • Travis J I Corcoran says:

      Possible.

      When the kickstarter closed at over $18,000 – putting it in the top 5% of all kickstarter publishing projects ever – I was contacted by two publishing agents.

      I signed with one of them and the book is currently being shopped around to major publishers.

      Part of the deal with major publishers is that they don’t want to RE-publish something. This limited kickstarter release is OK, but my agent cautions me against doing anything more.

      …so I won’t. If a publisher wants the book and makes me a sufficiently good offer, I’ll go that route. If either no publisher wants to take a chance on 1,300 pages of talking dogs and 25mm rifles used in space combat, or one of them does, but comes up with an insultingly low offer, I’ll self publish on Amazon.

    You shipped! Now it’s time for a release party. But I’m sure you know that.
