5/20/07 The Diamond order has been filled, and YBIL should hit comic book shops 6/6, if all continues to go smoothly!
5/7/07 My PC crashed a month ago, so I haven't been able to do much since APE. I am now ready to start mailing creator copies (i've already mailed a few in April, and handed copies out to those who were at APE).
4/2/07 YBIL is in Diamond April PREVIEWS. It is also carried by book distributor Bookazine. It is currently for sale at Amazon. Because it didn't make it to PREVIEWS until now, it will not be available to most comic book stores on May 2, the original date. Books stores may have it by then, and comic book stores that order through indie rep Tony Shenton have it now.
3/28/07 The full shipment has arrived.
3/2/07 A number of review copies have been sent out. If you have a suggestion as to where I should send a copy, please let me know.
2/22/07 Rec'd the advance case of books for distributors and reviewers. It looks GREAT! I can't wait for everyone to see it. The bulk of the order arrives ~ March 24. Plenty of time for APE, for those of you who will be there.

1/1/07 YBIL in print officially announced to press.
