Proper post in an hour or two, but just to let non-backers know, California Dreaming is now done. The ebooks have been sent to my backers on both Kickstarter and Patreon, and I’m waiting on the proof copy to come back from Lulu before I ship copies out to those who’ve ordered them.
I’m afraid that because the project grew to almost twice the length I intended (hence taking about twice as long), it will be more expensive than my other books. The paperback will be priced at £15, rather than the normal £10, because at 398 pages Lulu won’t even *allow* the book to be priced below £10.40, and that would leave me no royalties at all (and no, that doesn’t mean I’m getting a fiver per copy sold, either — most sales will be through Amazon, which will net me about £1.50 per sale). This means Kickstarter backers will be getting the physical book at a substantial discount on the retail price, as they deserve. The ebook will be set at £5, the same price it was for the Kickstarter, as charging more than that would seem absurd to me.
I’ll have purchase links for everyone once the backer copies have all been sent off.
