As I said in the post, I'm hoping to have it in hand by the 23rd, so you guys will get copies before exams are over. We've gone slightly over budget, so we might have to give you three free copies each and charge 20 bucks for extras. that ok with you?

thats fine man. DOnt worry about it.
Yay! Im gonna be a writer! yay! *jumps up with joy, hits ceiling fa, head gets chopped into fine bits, cats eat it up and leave*

Illusionary said...

oh that sounds great!!Am so excited about it coming out!!So does that mean we can say we are 'published' writers??

Erythrocyte said...

kind of, since you guys had to clear certain quality controls to get in. The book will be useful when you want to submit serious stuff to publishers. it always helps to have SOMETHING in hand.
