My lords, ladies, and gentlemen, here it is! The very first physical evidence that The Spoil of Zanuth-Karun exists, and that it’s very nearly ready for its debut.
While I haven’t quite put the finishing touches on it yet, and my beta readers still have plenty of time to get their comments in, I wanted to order a proof copy so I could see how the cover was going to look and make sure the formatting was all spiffy.
It’s not as bulky and cumbersome as I thought it would be, at a slim and svelte 563 pages, so any talk about splitting it into multiple volumes is now over.
It looks beautiful. You can’t quite tell from the cell phone pic, but the colors are rich and clear, the inside is elegant and readable, and the content isn’t half bad, if I do say so myself.
My tentative release date is July 15, depending on when I hear back from my various copy editors. I will certainly update you if that happens to change. I’m really very, very excited about the way this has turned out, and I sincerely hope y’all will end up feeling the same way.
