Signed the book contract today! Can't Post

For those of you who have been following the saga, I signed the contract today for "Carrot Field", the epic sff-f novel I have been working on since 1994, and which has gone through many adventures in the publishing world since then. The publisher is small but the terms are incredibly fair. The book will eventually be available in three formats: Ebook, Hardcover POD (print on demand), and Trade Paperback POD.

It's been a long, long, long, long road, but at last this story (which has been rewritten around 100 times) will be presented to the world. It has certainly made this a very special and extra Merry Christmas, that's for sure!

When the book is available, I will PM everyone who has expressed interest on these Forums.

Congrats! [In reply to] Can't Post

What's "sff-f" mean? I'm guessing "science fiction" and "fantasy" account for three of the letters, but not sure of the last.

all we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us...

What a fantastic Chrismas present!

And you have joined a small but doughty group of TORn members who are also published authors. Best of wishes for the book as you send it into the public arena! Smile

That's awesome! [In reply to] Can't Post

Congratulations my friend! I just recently self-published mine as well so I know the feeling...somewhat. I didn't want to wait around on publisher. :-P

I will definitely let all interested parties know when the book is available!

Your support over the past two years (yes, it's been that long!) has been a real encouragement and deeply appreciated.
