I'm not sure what's holding up the release of Reflectory, but I just sent an email to Lulu, my publisher, asking for an
update. Since submitting the manuscript three weeks ago,
I’ve found it impossible to let it go. After 4+ years of intense
work, it had become such an important facet of my day.
Accordingly, I’ve been reviewing the first edition, finding some
typos and various places to make improvements and increase
the book’s balance. I just finished sweeping through Chapters
9-12, and I’ll be doing the same soon for the first 200+ pages.
The idea is to release the upgraded manuscript as a second
edition, along with some new music examples, then use it as a
final version for an audiobook that I’ll produce sometime in 2022.
My thought is to reach an entirely new readership with the
audiobook; folks who like to listen to books on tape, whether on
their phones or in the car.
I’m hoping the book gets published this week. I’ll announce it when
that’s the case. In the meantime, check out these tunes, most of
which are discussed and included as links in the book:
