Let me know if anyone needs this in a different format, if the formatting is wonky on your e-reader, or if you have any other questions or concerns.

And for those who want to put into the tip jar (which would be really welcome right now thanks to some medical bills), you can do so:

Also, signal boosting and telling any friends or fellow readers who might enjoy this book about it and where to download it is very welcome. Feel free to share this widely.

As always it's under a Creative Commons licence so you're free not only to share it with everyone you know, but derivative and transformative works (fan art and fanfic, for example) are welcome (hell - loved!) with credit given to the original source.

Thank you to my spouse person, who has been with me this entire time. All those who have encouraged me. The brave souls who read my first drafts (and who get thanked in the acknowledgments), everyone who's signal boosted, donated, or just cheered me on, and to everyone who's read whether I know it or not. You're awesome.
In order to thank those who are donating to the tip jar, I wanted to make an offer.

1. Anybody who donates in any amount can get the entire novel, free, ahead of time as an e-book.

2. Anybody who donates more than $25 can get a short story, poem, or non-fiction essay of their choice. It can be a short story about a character or place from this novel that you liked or unrelated. Short stories will run about 2500-3000 words, poems around 30 lines.

And for those who might not be able to put anything in the tip jar (believe me, I understand), signal boosting, links and recommending this novel to friends if you liked it is also really appreciated.

Dedicated to Mom, Gran, and Bo -
All I can say is sine qua non
(without which none). It was from
you that I heard all the best
stories and grew confident enough
to tell my own.

First off, let me thank all the awesome people who gave me critiques and read over this during the various drafts of this novel: [livejournal.com profile] queenoftheskies, [personal profile] meloukhia, [livejournal.com profile] dungeonwriter, [livejournal.com profile] claws_n_stripes. Your comments, insights, and ideas in how to improve this novel were invaluable. Any mistakes left over and any imperfections are wholly my own. If there are others who gave me help and I forgotten, please let me know. I want to make sure I thank you for the gift of your input, and it is a gift.

Also, a shout out of [personal profile] smw, who's own posting of a novel inspired me and gave me the courage to do what I'm doing now.

Also a giant thank you to my husband, who's been there since this story was a scribbled outline of a hand that didn't turn into a turkey in my notebook and who has read everything I've written and put up with my incessant questions about every little detail. I eggplant you with all my eggplant.
