Copies of Book 2 are finally en route to me. It’s been a frustrating experience with way more delays than should have happened, and I’m sorry that it’s unlikely that preorders will get to people by Christmas, but at least they’ll be arriving soon.
Basically, that’s the couch he runs behind when a stranger comes over. Only this time he very slowly and deliberately went there. I guess he wanted me to see what loneliness felt like.
(Don’t worry, he forgave me a couple hours later.)
Two versions of this one, both with and without the now-traditional white tummy patch. When I first designed this particular self-portrayal character it was patchless, but I decided to add it a couple years later (and the horns came even later). Now I’m waffling on it again. Which one do you think looks better?
I neglected to mention earlier but the books finally came from the printer, and the preorder batch is en route to Amazon right now. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like people will be receiving it until after Christmas (since it won’t reach the warehouse until the 24th), so if you were planning on getting it for that purpose, I apologize. But considering that pretty much everything that could go wrong did, I’m just happy to have actually gotten the book out this year (primarily for tax reasons).
When I get back to Seattle I can also start doing direct sales to people, which I think works out better for everyone. I can also start on the ebook version, which I will probably sell via my Gumroad store, perhaps with an ebook+physical copy bundle option if Gumroad supports that.
As of a few days ago, Amazon is actually shipping out the books. So, if you were waiting for it to be really real before buying it, you can do so.
