Before anything else, I just want to say that Dark Futures Annual 1 is almost ready to go. It just needs a couple more stories formatted and my introduction before I can send it off to Amazon for Kindle release, followed shortly thereafter by release of Smashwords, and finally formatting for the physical print edition.
Next, I want to formally announce that anyone who ordered a print copy from our Indiegogo campaign will receive an electronic copy first, free of charge, because of the extreme delay of release.
Also, we intend to step away from our use of DriveThruFiction and PDF copies so, if there are no objections, we will be replacing the DRM-free PDF copies described in the preorder campaign with other electronic copies. If you ordered one of those, we will happily get you a copy in any ebook file type you prefer but we hope to be able to do so through either Amazon or Smashwords. If not, we will do what we need to do for you.
Now for the bad news: Yesterday, I began experiencing computer problems. Please understand that I am a lifelong geek and when I say, “computer problems,” I really mean, “my computer has all but ceased functioning.” I hope to have the issue resolved this weekend but I first need to determine precisely what the issue is. I want Dark Futures Annual 1 out in at least ebook format by CONvergence, at the beginning of next month, even if it requires staying up all night on my couple of remaining days off from my normal job before then to make it happen.
As always, if you have any questions, please contact me.
