Looking great, Merman! I think it's time to preorder this bad boy next payday (assuming they'll ship to Australia).

Nice likeness on the About the Author section, by the way. :wink:

More than half way, so things are looking good.

Still hard at work editing and proof-reading here...

The Foreword for the book has been written by a MYSTERY GAMING CELEBRITY. It's really funny and fits the book perfectly.

Remember, this is a limited edition, so pre-ordering will make sure you secure a copy.

True. I'm a mystery, but not a celebrity.

Yep, it's a real word.

Slow going with the editing at the moment, but we're getting there. Slowly.

Excellent. I'd much prefer a book with few errors and mistakes that takes longer to get out than a rushed one with lots!
