thanks everyone for your patience. the book is now just one week from being finished from my side. it then goes to the editor for their comments before going in to production after that. if you have any questions about how long the next stage is where the book is actually printed and distributed, please email unbound direct.

am nervous of course but pleased to be nearly there.

thank you again…
