Hand-formatting the damn thing for pub is taking longer than I expected. Furthermore, the Library of Congress isn't exactly a swift service to deal with.
In any case, the digital novel WILL be released, and all I'll ask you to do is tell everyone you know to buy a copy--and to tell everyone THEY know to buy one, too.
Honestly, while I hope to sell enough to get the attention of a major publisher, my hopes aren't up--but this I know: Readers will not be disappointed.
When the book becomes available, I'll post the prologue and the first three chapters to read absolutely free.
