Sorry everyone, I made a mistake in my last Journal when I said my book, Character Mentor, was out and I haven't seen it yet. The note came from someone that said they "just got my book" but didn't reference that it was the old book (Creating Characters) because he assumed I would remember his note to me about a month ago that he was going to order that one. ANYWAY, my fault.
BUT, it did give me a chance to give you all the book update, as far as I know:
THe book should have come out about a week ago (April 15th) but I had been told months ago by my publisher it was going to "most likely" come out a good couple weeks before that. So, in my mind its pretty late. These things are not uncommon in publishing from what I hear, though I'm sure Amazon doesn't like it. They were holding it up so they could get some cartooning pros to preview it and give a quote for the back cover. I was able to scramble and get two (the publisher asked me to ask people literally a week before the book was supposed to come out, so I knew it was running late.) I got two out of the 6 people I asked. Not bad. Only one, Pete Doctor, said he couldn't do it. Something about working day and night right now on a Pixar film that he is directing. I let him off the hook. The others, hopefully, will have there quotes online somewhere or in future printings.
At any rate, I have been told by the publisher that it should be "done" be done around now. My hope is that it will start shipping in a week or so. Let me know when you get yours, you may still beat me!
God bless, Tom B.
