Hello Fellow Hobbits!
Thank you all AGAIN for all the support for the book on Kickstarter!
Sorry for the delay getting this update out, but once my shock and awe subsided after that crazy last day of the campaign, which took a few days, I buried my head back into polishing the book!
It is coming along well. I have trimmed and ‘sanded’ the first parts already, ‘Mordor is at the Door’, and ‘The Forging and Destruction of the One Ring’, and I’m currently working on the intro to the last, and most important section, “Saving the Earth: Sustainable Shire Living.”
I plan to have the book, self-published, by the 18th of October.
Middle Earth Day! Oct, 18th! Save the Day!
If you haven’t been to the Facebook page, then you might not know that we have declared the 3rd Saturday in October (18th) to be Middle Earth Day, because it is exactly half way between the original ‘Earth Day’ in April. This year, there will be a celebration at my house, coinciding with the book release! If you’re getting this message, I’m extending an invite to you! I will follow up with more details, but it will be a Hobbit-Fest to remember, I promise you that!
If you can’t make it to St. Paul, MN, then please throw a party in YOUR SHIRE! And let us know, through the FB page, what kinds of things you plan to do, and link up with us ‘live’ via Google+Hangout on the evening of the event!
I think that’s about it for now. I’ll try to keep you more posted in the next few weeks as we draw closer to the book release.
Thank you again for believing in the book, and for your support!
Yours truly, Steve Bivans
