So, it’s a good-news-bad-news kind of day. The good news is that CLICK is live as an ebook and has, in fact, already been shared with Patreon supporters. And there’s still time to join them for as little as $1 a month to get an immediate copy of the book!
Additional good news: the print copy is ready! That’s the print cover, right there!
The bad news: no one will print it for me, and I’m enormously fucking frustrated right now, because I’ve been doing nothing but fussing over .doc and .pdf and .png and Gimp files for about eight hours. I was hoping to have this ready for Kokomo-Con on the 13th and right now barring a miracle that’s not going to happen. Amazon’s print service apparently will not allow you to print a book that isn’t set up for distribution on Amazon– I swear that wasn’t the case before– and the small handful of other services I’ve checked out in the last few hours are all massively more expensive. I’ve heard good things about Ingram Spark, for example, but they want $50 to “set up” a book that I’m providing all the files for, then I have to pay for copies on top of that. So … uh … no? I think maybe no.
The original idea behind doing this was to make it something special for Patreon and folks at cons. I suppose the worst case scenario is that I have a new book out for everyone, but that’s not what I wanted to do. I’m sure there’s a way to get PoD copies that isn’t going to break my bank, but I haven’t found it yet. Stay tuned.
And go hit me up on Patreon, dammit. You’ll like this book.
