I want to thank everyone for their kind words of support and love on the passing of my dear friend. Your kindness was so appreciated. I felt the love and the prayers. Thank you.
In light of my friend’s passing, life’s little disappointments really have been put in perspective. I still feel a bit disappointed but not as much as I would have a week ago.
When I spoke to the people at BookSurge in November, I was supposed to get my actual book this week. I called today and someone there dropped the ball or told me the wrong information. They are expediting the process but now I won’t get the final copy until next week. This means once I've approved it, it will take another five to ten days for it to be launched on Amazon. I know that doesn’t sound bad, but if I didn’t ask for this rush, it wouldn’t be ready for Christmas. I’m still not sure if it will be. As soon as I know, I’ll let pass on the information.
The worst part is that my personal copies that I ordered won’t be ready for two to three weeks, which means I won’t have them by Christmas. So, I’m disappointed. I was assured that won’t be the case for those who order directly from Amazon when the book becomes available. It’s the regular shipping schedules. Funny, I have to wait longer to get my own books.
I’ve waited a long time for this and it’s just around the corner (but not as close I had thought). It’s really okay because in the scope of life’s bigger issues this is a small annoyance.
