It’s a bit of a sad news to most of you who have been diligently coming back to our site asking for the book.
The publisher we have been talking to about the second edition of Totoro Forest Project has decided to back out of the deal.
They were very enthusiastic about it but there still has been a bit of a gap with what kind of book the publisher wanted to make as opposed to what we wanted. We mainly needed to keep the quality in the decent level, if not the same as the first self published version. It involved so many talented people’s hard work without a pay and it deserved to be crafted with care.
So we apologize to inform you guys this news. So those who made a pre-order on Amazon or Barnes and Noble.com, this book won’t come out of that publisher.
There are a few publishers interested in making it happen. I’m supposed to meet with one of them this coming week.
Let’s see if they happen to share the philosophy of this project with us more closely!
It’s a long endeavour. And contrary to everyone’s wishes, maybe Totoro Forest God wants this to be only one time deal… who knows?
Tthe book is going for $800 on Ebay currently. So hey, someone is making something out of it! :)
We will keep you posted.
