What’s she done now? would probably be my Mother’s response to this subject but she already knows the answer.
The other night I gave her the draft of my book The Sentimental Jorney -Poetic Stories Vol 1 to read before I publish it. I had told her some time ago that she could and asked her if she would just check it through for me before I hit the button on it.
I think you are getting the picture with my frustration at what I did next..
Yes I hit the publish button with the wrong date on it. Well nobody is perfect!
I had my reasons, of course so that there was time to amend it beforehand but I would like for someone to buy the book before Christmas if possible.
Mum went away promising to let me know when she had read it and give me feedback and since it was late and my partner had not yet arrived home I thought I would upload the book to Amazon to check the layout I had amended. All good so far it fitted fairly well on tablet view.
Oh No, what have I done?
Suddenly im saving it I go a message which said that I had sent it for preview for pre-order. What shall I do now? Panic!
So I began praying that I’d be able to make changes if I need to, (like the date for starters) but more so what kind of idiot decides to publish their first book on New Year’s Eve for goodness sake! So I was feeling rather foolish. I also wonder if I have been greedy on the price… Well that didn’t take long did it? For the self doubt to start creeping in.
So this was not the post about publishing that I had hoped for all this time, when 4 months ago I finished writing it and waited for the family to read it. I wanted to be able to shout out loud. “That’s it at last, it is Done” with some level of pride. I did not expect that I would be silently berrating myself for my carelessness in making this error in timing. I wanted to be happy that I had published when the time came. So a couple of days later I just needed to get my head back to a good place and set the thoughts free before posting this here and edit of course. I was able to change the date after all the panic so I am now actually able to say…
Here is the link in case you would like to buy a copy when it comes out this weekend Saturday 26th November for the kindle and don’t worry if you don’t have one you can download an app for other devices so that you can read it.
I can’t quite believe that I can now actually write that. That’s another tick on my list.
Please show me some love and share the link for me and I’d love to know what you think.
