A LOCAL HABITATION ebook updates.

Okay, so here's the situation:

The electronic edition of A Local Habitation [Amazon]|[Mysterious Galaxy] has been delayed twice now, resulting in people who were looking for the electronic edition seeing a slowly-shifting date that didn't necessarily make sense. It didn't make sense to me, either, since I don't really work on that side of the publishing process (and I've been a little busy with the whole "book release" process). I've been getting a lot of emails, blog comments, and Tweets about the electronic edition, so I'm aware that it's been frustrating, and I'm sorry.

I spoke to my publisher this morning, and confirmed that there was a problem with the file, which is now being fixed. The electronic version should be available in one to two weeks. This has been technical, not financial or anything else silly like that. Promise. I'll post when I have an exact date, or you can follow @dawbooks on Twitter, since that's a good way to stay on top of things.

In the meantime, if you really don't want to wait, please consider buying a copy of the physical book and donating it to a women's shelter, local library, or other charity of your choice when you're done. I realize that's not a perfect solution (among other things, if you're on a limited book budget, it can be impossible), but it's the best one I have, and it means that you not only get to read the book now, you get to bring the gift of literature to someone else when you're finished. Otherwise, well, chalk this one up to the learning curve of a changing industry, and you should be able to get your hands on A Local Habitation sooner than later.

Thank you so very much for your patience. It really means a lot to me.
