Book Nearly Done - Robert Yand Interview Added

Hello Everyone


Update time again on the book, and in terms of the text it's pretty much done. I've taken this week off my day job to make sure it's edited and finished to perfection, but the book is maybe a couple of afternoons from being sent over to the publisher which is the first real step towards it being in your hands.

Additionally, I would like to announce that I have secured an interview with Robert Yang for the book, a game developer specialising in games about male homosexuality, nudity, and consent boundaries. 

We still need to finish working on the art over the coming weeks, but the book right now can be pretty much read start to finish, which is a big important milestone towards release.

In terms of backer rewards, we have not forgotten, and those will be aranged in the future. Fear not, we're on it all as we speak.

Hey Laura,
I am really happy to learn the progress of the book!
However, I have just one issue or a point I want to rise here....
I am only speaking my feelings about this and I could really be a really small minority, but TBH I don't really care about others take on this subject, I backed this book because YOU wrote it and I wanted YOUR take on the subject.
I mean, I get it, you are really excited and happy that a lot of creative people want to be part of this book but I am just asking you to consider to not let that push the publication date any further.
Yours truly, a fan.

I'm really happy to hear the book is going well. In addition, I'm excited to hear that a new interview with someone who's thought about nudity and consent boundaries is going to be included. I was fairly confident such issues would be appropriately addressed knowing your work, but it's always something good to have discussed. I appreciate the wide range of viewpoints you've decided to include. I hope you're taking care of yourself as this process continues.
