What can go wrong, will.

I got up feeling happy. My book, A Question of Time, is due to be released Oct. 13. All my hard work finally seeing fruition.

Then I opened my email.

My publisher wrote: Where are your galley edits? We can’t release the book until we get them.AQuestionofTime200x300

I said some unladylike words because I had sent the changes days ago! Shortly after I received the galleys! Are they still floating around in the ether somewhere?

Not only that, but I had sent info for a teaser video, but the videographer wrote also this morning that the form I had sent in was blank.

No, no, I filled it in! Where did the words go?

Is there a word thief hidden in the bowels of my computer?

I hastily re-sent the material, keeping my fingers crossed. Which makes it difficult to type, by the way.

Novice writers think that once they write “The End” their work is finished.

I know better. The road to publication is never smooth. There are bumps on the road right up to release day.

I was too happy when I got up. Now I’m going to wait to celebrate when I actually see the book on Amazon.
