American Soldier says,
I had raised a few eye brows by posting about bad or good news yesterday. Really it isn’t bad but some variables involved with the book.
LBF Books and I decided to part ways due to the creative direction in which I had envisioned for the book. There is no bad blood between us. So I have decided that I will seek another publishing house for Soldier Life.
There are a few options to explore and I have decided to get your opinion on it. I could release the book as an e-book. It would for the moment eliminate the cost and specifics when dealing with a print service. It would also give you the chance to actually have it sooner rather than later.
I have been discussing the book with a few other publishing houses so that leads me to the next option. It would be to wait for a few of them to get back to me and pursue the best one. However, that could be some time.
I know those who ordered the book looked forward to getting it sometime this month. Hence the e-book option. You could do what I did and take the PDF file and go to Kinko’s and have it printed. I think it looks pretty snappy.
Now you all know that I will soon be in Iraq. I can anticipate that I will become real busy as soon as I get there. So I don’t want to rush anything nor do I want to put this to the side.
Give me some feedback and I will take your opinions into consideration.
UPDATE: Some people have asked about the pre-order money they sent to LBF. They will be reimbursing all monies collected. As far as B&N and Amazon you can goto that account and refund the pre-order book. If you are having troubles you can contact LBF directly. However, I think it should be pretty painless
