Exmormon's Real Launch!!!

The final version of Exmormon is finally available from Amazon!!!



Those of you who have been following this blog are probably asking: "Wasn't it already available?" Here's the difference:

The earlier Lulu edition was a bit of a pre-print test run (without illustrations or ISBN). Now you can get the real published version -- with all of the illustrations and a new professional cover design and layout! Also, I've finally set it up so that you can order a PDF e-copy -- with all of the illustrations in color!

Note that I'm planning to donate the proceeds to Solar Aid and/or to the local conservation partnership with the Masoala National Park in Madagascar. (More about my reasons for this coming soon.)

I'm also starting on a publicity campaign. Here's my first ad, which I'm placing in the program notes of the Secular Student Alliance 2010 Annual Conference. It sounds like it will be a fun conference (I think Greta Christina will be there, among other cool people). I can't attend myself, but if you go, please be sure to admire my beautiful ad. :D

Congratulations!

Hey Robert!!!

Sadly, yes.

However, keep in mind that copies of the initial Lulu printing will be valuable collectors' items once the book takes off! :D

Also, to anyone who bought the first edition: just email me at chanson dot exmormon at gmail dot com and I'll send you the PDF of the final version (will the illustrations).

Thanks Leah!!!

Hey C.L.,

Congratulations on the book. I've been reading the online version and enjoying it immensely.

Are you planning on putting the final chapter online or are you going to leave us hanging to encourage sales?

:)

Hey v_quixotic!!!

Glad you like it!

No, I was just waiting for this edition to be ready before posting the final chapter. I'll post it on June 22. :D

p.s. to v_quixotic -- are you an exmo? I'm not sure I have your blog in Outer Blogness.

Same for Robert -- I'm not sure I have your new blog listed. Is it OK if I add it to Outer Blogness?
