And thanks Ant for showing me this utterly cool thing. I think it deserves a plug or two.
No problem, Gaz, and thanks for dropping in. Yes, a plug or two is a great idea -- the guys have done a sterling job. :)

Right, the book is off to the printers, now we just sit and wait 6-8 weeks to get our hands on the final product...

OK, still on course for late February.

But (drum roll please) a sample copy has made its way to the designer and I can reveal some photos here to show you what it looks like...

Well done!

It must be amazing to be able to hold it in your hand as a physical product after all those months of staring at it on a screen.

May it bring you fame and fortune! x-)

Apart from the pre orders, are you still taking orders. i.e. have you printed up more than you have orders for?
