#tToU Update

Everyone is anxiously awaiting the release of The Tide of Unmaking. But certainly no one more than me. Only because the approval of the proof is now in my hands.

Well, almost in my hands.

It was supposed to be here yesterday. Until UPS decided for the first time in hundreds if not thousands of packages sent to me that they needed a suite number for the shipping address.

Now approving (or making changes to) the proof must wait until Monday at 3:30pm EST.


Hang in there Elves. We’re on the home stretch.

As I just finished emailing Wayne:

A.) If the book arrives Monday, *and* it’s 100% good to go, it could be made live almost immediately.

B.) If the book arrives Monday and needs minor changes, I *might* be able to make those changes on the spot, and resubmit new files, which will need 48-hours to process, making the book live shortly after their approval.

C.) If the book arrives Monday and needs serious changes which would demand a new proof, that’s 2 days plus another week.

That’s the best timeline we can give you for now.

Soon. Very soon.

    It’s soooooooo close!
    You guys are doing great! Keep it up!

    • Thanks Andy. So appreciate your encouragement! Home stretch…

    • Andy

      It’s almost here… It’s alllllmost here…….


  • Sarah

    So close . . . so close . . . hope it looks good. Thanks for the update, Sir Hopper!

  • Esmerelda

    Gah! I can’t wait!!! I don’t care how long it takes, as long as it is before November, and it’s worth the wait! 🙂 I know it will be though. I’m preodering it as SOON as it shows up on Amazon. Thanks for all your hard work, and I second Andy. You guys ARE doing FANTASTIC! 🙂 Thank you!

    • What a blessing, Esmer. THANKS for this enthusiasm.

    • Esmerelda

      Your welcome! Glad to be of service! 🙂 I guess I won’t be pre-ordering. Ordering is even better! Haha! Can’t wait, and I’m praying Sir Hopper! (and Sir Batson! 🙂

  • Jag Swiftstorm

    Yes! *explodes*



  • When will we be able to pre-order it?

    • There’s no pre-order option. You can just purchase it as soon as it becomes live in [Lord willing] a few short days.

  • Ashland

    Am SO looking forward to it! I will be ordering it as soon as it comes out.
    (or as soon as I have the money!) 😀 Thank you so much for writing the prophecies of berinfell. LOVE THEM!! I’m praying extra hard for a fast release!

    • Thanks Ashland.

      The physical-print version price will be $14.99 USD; the ebook price will be $2.99.

    • Ashland

      Okay, Thanks!

  • Billy Jepma

    That’s so exciting! Can’t wait to get a copy in my hands! 🙂

  • Hey, I don’t know if you know this, but the Underground is down. Not sure what’s up with it. Is there maintenance going on? Did it get hacked or something?

    • Andy

      You got it too? Weird.

    • Yeah, so did Soaring Fire. I’m sure plenty of other people are getting it as well.

    • Andy

      Thats soooo weird!

    • Sarah

      I’m having the same problem! When I try to get to the UG, I get a white screen with some of the links, but none of them work; they just lead to the same white screen. And when I try to log in, it just loads and loads and eventually a screen pops up that says it’s never going to actually load.

    • Andy

      I hope its okay. :S i emailed CH about it.

    • Oh good.

    • It was a temp code issue we were working on. All fixed.

    • Andy

      Yay! Well done, Sir Hopper!

  • Esmerelda

    I was just wondering if the special edition was still gonna be happening with TotU. I had heard that it WOULD be coming out, but then that kinda drifted off. 😉

    • The amount of work it took me to get this one ready, esp during summer hours, made any other plans take a back burner. After some time to rest for yours truly, we may take a pole and see how much interest there is. Even if you want to start a thread on TU feel free. I’m guessing the hard covers would be about $25 or so, and we’d need a minimum of 500 people interested. Those numbers could be wrong, but it’s a good place to start. I’d need to check with one of our specialty printers.

    • Esmerelda

      Okey Dokey! So if I can get 500 people at the LEAST to WANT a special edition, it might inspire you guys? 🙂 Sounds good! It’ll be fun to see what happens! Praying you guys get PLENTY of rest. You deserve it! 🙂

      • I’ll do some research and try and get you solid numbers to work toward. Stay tuned. If I don’t respond here by Thursday, I’ll get to it after I return from Switzerland and Malta. in about 2 weeks.

    • Esmerelda

      Sure thing! And thanks! Take your time though! 🙂 I’ll start it up any way, since it might take time for the Sentinels to give the okay. 😉

  • Yahooooo!!! 😀

  • Cole

    I can’t wait! I’ve been waiting for this for so long! You guys have done great!

  • How awesome is this news!? Made my Monday

    • Awe thanks bro! Picking up the proof from UPS Store at 3:30pm EST today!

  • Esmerelda

    Uhh, is the Tide of Unmaking out?? Cuz Andy already bought it on Kindle, and it didn’t say pre-order!!! 😀

  • KitKat

    I Can almost feel it in my hands… after all this time!

    • Esmerelda
