My book is in production and comes out in April


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,


I haven't been on the forum much the past few months, just a few posts here and there every few days. I have been working very hard on the editing process of my book, sometimes all day everyday.


Initially I finished back in July, 2009 and thought it would be out in the fall. It was 500 pages at that point. Then the editing process began and it proved to be a much longer process than anticipated! We dropped it down to a little over 200 pages and I still thought it would be out by the fall and surely by winter 2009, but we kept refining it as I worked one on one with an editor to improve it.


For the past few months I've been working really hard fine-tuning it and pulling out material to be used for another book that didn't quite flow the rest of the book, while re-writing other areas and adding additional information that wasn't in the first few drafts. I've been reviewing it, placing all the photos, and getting it print-ready for months.


Now, I can finally say that my book has been officially submitted for print. I finished it the day I turned 30, and submitted it two the printers two days later. It is in production right now and is officially scheduled to be out by April 10th. I will continue to provide updates, but I think it will be pretty smooth from here on out over the next month.


You can still pre-order if you're interested and save $3 by visiting www.veganbodybuildingbook.com - Everyone who has ordered already and those who order later on will all get Vega product samples since I had a proposal approved to have them sponsor my year-long book tour.


The book will go up to the regular price in a few weeks when it comes out.


Thanks so much to all of you who have supported the book, ordered the book, and for passing out postcards, posting links, etc. promoting the book. It means so much!


I started writing this Vegan Bodybuilding themed book back in 2003, started over in 2005, and started over on page 1 from scratch in 2008 and that book is now complete.


All the best everyone! Read samples, previews, etc. on www.veganbodybuildingbook.com.


If you're interested in having me come to your town on tour, please let me know. I'm booking my own tour and getting it funded to ensure it is highly successful.


Thank you all.
