The first draft of Greetings From Effin' Birds (minus the Request A Bird pages -- expect an email soon if you pledged at that level) is now in the hands of DeAndra, the same editor who shepherded the orignal Field Guide and had all those arguments with me about punctuation. With that, we can start looking at the schedule for the rest of the process.
There are a lot of parts involved, but the TLDR is that September 2021 is the date that the book will likely be in your hands. With no chance of getting it out there for holiday 2020, holiday 2021 looks to be the best chance this book has for a big audience.
There have been some "should I wait for a domestic edition" questions from people in the US keen to save on shipping. Nothing is set in stone right now, but what has been discussed is a considerably different version for holiday 2022.
Thanks for your support so far! I can't wait to get this book into your hands.
