Finally, there is a release date.
I didn't plan it, but it seems right, doesn't it? If you had told me it was going to take this long a decade or so ago, I never would have believed you. I couldn't have imagined that there was so much we didn't know, and that much of what we did know turns out to have been wrong.
In April 1969, John addressed the inaccuracy of the press in a comment to the Foreign News Service of The Observer:
"I just use the various media like letter-boxes. I post my message and hope that it gets delivered. If it gets a bit dirty on the way I don't really mind all that much - so long as it gets there."
It's taken a long time, but the message has been dusted off and is finally going to be delivered.
If you are wondering why the end is more than a year away, consider this. In addition to finishing the writing, there is still an incredible amount of work to be done. There are software programs to be learned and layouts to be designed. The pictures and memorabilia have to be gathered, licensed and prepared for print. There's a marketing plan to prepare, web pages to author and a printer to be paid.
That being said, I'm going to get back to work. Thank you to all of the supporters and to the patient ones, it will be more than worth the wait.
