And it’s gorgeous. Exactly what I envisioned when I began planning this book almost three years ago. It is physical proof of your outstanding generosity—whether you contributed to the book in some way or you purchased the book.
I will begin shipping books once I figure out the best way to ensure their safe arrival to their respective owners. This book will not be shipped with mere bubblewrap and a box. I’m thinking bubblewrap around the book placed in a box. Then that box bubblewrapped and placed in another box. This will help keep the world away from this precious book.
I imagine I will begin shipping Monday. So expect your book soon! If you have moved to a new address, definitely write me an email and update it. I don’t want these books getting lost!

Two months ago, I asked you guys if you’d be interested in remarqued copies by Todd Lockwood. Since that time, I’ve decided to not do that. For a good reason. Todd has written a novel and it will be published by DAW Books next year. He has to finish his art for that book as well as the edits—and they are due by November. Todd is also painting me two covers for Unbound and Unfettered II and has other commitments he must finish.
I want him to put his energies toward those projects and he feels the same way. Many apologies about that. He will of course remarque your copies if you see him at a convention this summer. And once his schedule lightens up a bit, I’m sure he will accept books through the mail.
Remember those 100 additional un-numbered copies of Unfettered? I decided not to go forward and produce them with leather, or a ribbon, and certainly no Todd Lockwood remarque. More news on those copies and when they will be available for order after I get the Signed & Numbered copies shipped out. Those who ordered the Signed & Numbered copies come first.
An exciting day! One I will remember for a long time.
Thank you for your patience. I hope you proudly display this book in your home or office. It is a testament to your heartfelt generosity and how humanity can come together to great wonder.
PS: Patrick Rothfuss purchased 15 copies of the Signed & Numbered edition of Unfettered, by the way, for his charity. If you want a copy, you’d better join and watch Worldbuilders!
