And A Status Update…

The book is coming along well! Currently we have all chapters of both books submitted, and are about halfway through editing.

When the NDA lifts, we’ll send anyone who’s preordered the book an advance copy of what we have ready so far – and then we’ll send you the finished version as soon as it’s ready.

A reminder – time is running low to preorder the new books and snag your $10 off discount! This deal will expire once the NDA lifts, so preorder now!
