The final copy of THE STARTER gets signedBackMyBooks backs my book - for realzYoda drinks he will

It's all over! It's all over! We stamped, numbered, signed and inscribed 1,500 copies of THE STARTER for all y'all, and our work here is complete. The big-ass postal truck came yesterday to take away THE STARTER pre-orders. We're happy as drunken clams. Yes, you can still order by clicking here.

A few more photos (to see the full-size photos from the whole week, go to THE STARTER Flickr Page). From upper-left: FDO™ signs the very last pre-order; the guys from BackMyBooks.com stopped by to help pack a crap-load of books; Master Yoda stopped by to answer questions (he was a little sozzled from his trip to the Caymans), and the Big-Ass Postal Truck of Døøm took away all y'all's copies.

Everyone should have their copy by the end of the week. Probably. Enjoy! PS: It's not "all" over, we still have two days of clean-up, book stamping/signing and setting up our inventory for the next year, but the important part (all y'all's books is f-ing done).

Congrats!

Congrats on getting the Starter shipped!  It was fun helping you and A pack the books.  Talk about learning about the publishing industry from the ground up! 

Thanks for the podcast, we'll put it up in the next day or so on backmybook.com, and thanks for feeding us at that oh so lovely steak house.  Steak and paintings of naked women, you can't beat that after a hard day at the factory!

People have already finished reading The Starter...

...and I have yet to receive it. Curses! I am much vexed.

 

The worst thing about being the center of the universe is

the vertigo from everything spinning around you.

The second is the dearth of good restaurants.

Tropical Storm Hermine...

My copy arrived in the middle of tropical storm Hermine here in San Antonio. I lost power for two days, and a section of roof from my house, but the packing kept the book safe and dry until I could rescue it from my mailbox.

On Edited

Well...

... as long as your book was safe, I guess a roof is of little importance? Cool

 

Seriously, are you OK otherwise? Insured, roof not leaking onto your bed, that sort of thing?

On Edited

Thanks for asking

Everything is cool, and i've already fixed the roof. Luckily the storm just pulled off shingles, and left the felt paper and plywood beneath intact. So I spent a few hours on the roof with a buddy and a hundred fifty bucks worth of shingles to get everything fixed up. It would probably take longer, and cost me more in the long run if I claimed this on my insurance, but thankfully shingles are a pretty easy fix on my one story house with a shallow pitched roof.  I came off a lot luckier than a few people in the area that ended up with trees on their houses and cars. Still, it was quite unnerving to look out my livingroom window during the storm and watch bunches of shingles landing all over my front yard.

roof and book

Glad you are safe and had an relatively easy fix on your roof.
