Get an advanced copy of my new book. Details here...
It’s been a while since I’ve sent any updates regarding my book, so here’s the latest news. (If you are on my advanced copy waiting list, you’ve already seen a version of this).
For my blog subscribers: I will resume posting new content once finishing my book isn’t the central focus of my life.

Here is where things stand as of Sept 15…
Today I’m editing the final existing piece in my book. This is basically previously written content that needs to be updated to reflect the style in which I’ve written the book as well as to reflect my current views. I’m hoping to be done with that today.
Due to the editing process, the number of pages in my book have dropped from a high of about 465 pages down to 437. However, I literally have hundreds (if not thousands) of notes I want to review and write a few new pieces (lessons) from. My book already has several new pieces, but I’d like to add a few more to get my book closer to the 450 pages I originally anticipated.
These new pieces will take me anywhere from 3-12 days to complete.
While I’m working on these new pieces, I’m going to have a few “beta” copies of my book printed just to get a feel for the design and layout and make sure everything prints as expected.
Provided everything is as anticipated (and/or corrections are made), I’ll be printing advanced copies of the book for everyone who signed up for one and a few extras in case there is a demand.
If you plan on ordering multiple advanced copies, it’s important you let me know. Otherwise, I may not order enough copies to be printed.
These advanced copies will basically be a special edition of the book which may (to be determined) feature a special cover that will vary from the mainstream release. How exactly, I’m not sure, because I haven’t designed either. So that’s also on my todo list.
I will also be personalizing the book for you or anyone you wish to gift it to. So I’ll be asking for both instructions on personalization, billing information, and addresses to ship to (don’t send me any information now, I’m not ready to receive it). When the time comes, you can pay for your advanced copy via Paypal, amazon payments, google wallet, or personal check (although that will take longer) and I will send you instructions on how to do that.
Roughly speaking, I’m hoping to have advanced copies of the book available to send out in early October. There are roughly 140 people on the waiting list. I don’t know if this is good or bad, but it sounds like a lot of personalization.
The mainstream release (Amazon, etc) likely won’t be available until November (hopefully) or early December. The digital edition (to which advanced copy owners are entitled) won’t be available until early 2017. This is because my preferred format of the book is the print edition (because of how it’s designed to be read).
Also, the ebook _may_ be a slightly revised edition of the initial print version based on feedback I receive from people like you. Note: I’m still considering the idea of revised editions — it’s going to depend on the kind of feedback I get. Obviously, I will want to correct any potential errors, but also clarify or expand on anything that people think there is a need for.
Will it be available in bookstores? I’m not sure yet, but that’s the goal. But it will certainly be available on Amazon and also from my own website.
That’s it for now.
Thanks so much for your interest in my book. I hope my note finds you having a great day.
If you have any questions or comments, you can reply to this email or message my page on facebook (if you want to be certain I receive it).
