I rarely have a solid, hard release date for any project, for one simple reason.
As Sarah Hans alluded to in her interview with SciFiNow, the Kickstarter date (and therefore, the publication date) of Steampunk World got pushed back to make sure that she got quality stories that met the needs of the anthology. What she didn’t say was that the Kickstarter date moved from August to December.
I have at least one release this year that is going to be a month behind the original release date… because the author wanted to do some more revisions after seeing some editorial feedback.
But that’s a good thing. Her commitment – as is mine – is to bring you the best book possible. Period.
Even if it takes a little bit longer than we anticipated.
