We found some boo-boos in the final proofread that must be fixed before finalizing the formatting. It’s going to add some time. One to two weeks is my guess. Sorry, but it has to be perfect.
All that said, I’m working hard to get this book out as soon as I can. We still have a few things to do (ebook formatting and proofreading, spine and back cover art, approval of the physical paperback proof), but they will all happen quickly once these final changes are made.
I hope you’ll find it will be worth the extra wait. :)
