I did not [at the time of purchase] and still do not have a problem with
having ordered and paid [cc] for the book that Douglas is finishing.
Why? Because he stated right up front it was not finished, that it was a
pre-sale offer. When asked he quickly tells us what stage it is at, even
asked for proofers. I really don't see what the problem is. As far as the
"credit rules" goes, I feel he has been very clear and up front about what
is going on and what to expect.
Douglas just don't forget I want my signed if possible! :)
