Update #4 - Update on printing Wine Sense July 20, 2014

We will be cutting final and going to print with Wine Sense: The Art of Appreciating Wine in about 2 – 3 week time.  This is about three weeks later than intended, but will ensure we have a quality product.  I am just receiving final feedback from my team of wine experts, and we have completed extensive testing of all interactive features to make the Ebook reading experience a powerful one in which you can control exactly how you want to read the book – sequentially, linking to the topic of your choice, connecting to related websites, or by diving deeper into the footnotes and other references!

I will keep you posted on progress as we achieve this important milestone.  I will need some information from you to be able to fulfill your order.  In short order, you will be receiving a follow-up email asking you to provide your choice of EBook format, either MOBI, EPUB or PDF, and requesting you validate or provide missing information from your address to ensure we mail your copies of the book to the correct address.

And finally, it is not too late (but it will be in the next few weeks!) to qualify as a Platinum Corporate Sponsor or Patron, and have that be acknowledged in the book and on our websites.  If you have any interest in doing either, please contact me at 'shipleyaust@yahoo.com.au.'

I am really looking forward to getting this book into your hands and hope you enjoy reading it as much as I have enjoyed researching and writing it.
