Paint My Name In Black and Gold: The Next Phase

THE place for your Sisters-related comments, questions and snippets of Sisters information. For those who do not know, The Sisters of Mercy are a rock'n'roll band. And a pop band. And an industrial groove machine. Or so they say. They make records. Lots of records, apparently. But not in your galaxy. They play concerts. Lots of concerts, actually. But you still cannot see them. So what's it all about, Alfie? This is one of the few tightly-moderated forums on Heartland, so please keep on-topic. All off-topic posts will either be moved or deleted. Chairman Bux is the editor and the editor's decision is final. Danke.

There is progress :D !
Today I received an e-mail from unbound asking if I wanted the name of the supporter printed in the book changed.
They said that after May 27th any changes might not make it into the book. Seems to me that it‘s going to be printed pretty soon. :D :D :D
Not much longer to wait fortunately ;D
Had that e-mail as well , hopefully be getting it before summer's done :D

Glad to hear it’s progressing. Despite pledging, I’ve not heard from them in over a year.
The most successful tyranny is not the one that uses force to assure uniformity but the one that removes the awareness of other possibilities, that makes it seem inconceivable that other ways are viable, that removes the sense that there is an outside.

I'd suggest sending MAndrews a PM on here and chase Unbound up via the author.

Great idea. But I'm also a dummy and the reset mail actually went to a different folder in gmail. All is good now...forgot I'd given my work address for shipping (this is over two years ago). If it's any time soon, I probably still won't be in the office...

Just noticed this on the Unbound website: "It’s getting close. Pre-order a reward now – the supporter list is closing at 11pm (BST) on Sunday 23 May 2021". Therefore it seems there are only a few days left to pledge and get your or someone else's name in the book. Seems logical since it's off to the typesetters ...

It's the Publisher Unbound that set the Process and the Length of time to get it from Rough Manuscript to Printed Book :wink:
