Timing Question
« on: December 17, 2014, 11:32:11 PM »
I *believe* that Jim was to finish the first Spires book around March, then pick up work on the next DF book. It looks like trips + illness + tooth problems contributed to part of the delay. Now I hear (via Twitter) the Spires book is 700 pages. Does anyone know the real timeline of what happened? I'm inclined to believe that he had delays/obligations *and* the book ended up being bigger than he'd originally planned, but I've known my gut to be wrong in the past.

He's finished the book now and submitted it for editing/publishing things. We should have it in our grubby paws in another month and a half or so.

Other than that, does it really matter what happened? :)

Nope. Just curious about the evolution of events, good Spot.

Ah, my curiosity gene is faulty these days. Also, "good Spot"? You don't know me at all. Those two words don't go together. ;D

Hahahaha, I meant it to the tone of "My good Man/Ma'am," if that helps.

I know, I know. Was just trying on these here smartypants. :) Also, "ma'am" would be correct, "man" not so much.

Four to six months would be my guess.

Google says May 7th, 2015.  And Google is never wrong.

This is the point in the process where dates like that have a slightly improved chance of being right.

Yes, you're right. 4 to 6 months sounds correct, 2 months not so much. In my defense, I was undercaffeinated. ;D

Indeed.

In the right direction.
Mister will never die, because Jim has already been threatened with typhoons, hurricanes, earthquakes and smog by the betas if he tries to off Mister.
