This month has been a rough one personally for me. I ran and am still running an emergency summer sale over on itch, as well as using a discount code on the shop. I don't want to get into the specifics of why it was rough, but I'm moving again at the end of the month, which is difficult but exciting. Scary but a new opportunity.
As for The Wizards and the Wastes. I was contacted by my rep at Sheridan Books sometime in June, where they let me know there was some issue with the colors on a particular spread. If you've looked at the pdf, it's the spread on The Wastes. The image I used as the background was far too dark for the paper I wanted. The earlier editions were printed on gloss paper and could hold ink better, but this new edition is more rustic, more old-school-novel, so the color had to be adjusted.
The good news is that it gave me yet another opportunity to fix small problems in the text. So the book is as close to perfect as I can make it.
And the other good news if that the ship date is 7/29. So they'll be waiting for me at my new apartment next month to begin shipping. I know it's been what feels like a long wait, since the book was basically ready to go in February, but working with a professional printer has presented new challenges and has been a learning experience.
I'll let you know next month when things begin to ship out. Until then, take care.
