Update #4 - And We're Off!!! May 16, 2018

Hey everyone!!!

Let me just say a huge THANK YOU to all of you for supporting the book! Seriously, the pre-order campaign was a huge success and would not have been possible without each and every one of you. 

We have publishers coming out of the woodwork so this is going to be great. I have a number of meetings set up in the next couple of days with some of these publishers so I will keep you updated as to who we end up going with. 

With that being said, I have some final edits to make on the book so the digital copies will get emailed within the next 10 days or so. Sorry for the delay, I just want to make sure everything is perfect. Depending on the publisher, the printed copies should be available early summer so I'll get them out as soon as I can. Rest assured, you will all be the very first to get a printed copy!

Again, I cannot thank you all enough. Lots of love!

Ryan
