I’m sorry I’ve been missing in action the last few days (and won’t bore all of you with dog happenings). As you may remember, comments from people who have not commented before have to be approved, and there were a couple I didn’t get to very promptly, and of course I see the when! when! questions.
As it happens, yes, it may be Halloween. I uploaded to Create Space (which produces the paperback version) a couple of days ago. That version has been reviewed and approved there, and my proof copy is on the way to me. If the timing is the same as for the other books, I’ll get the proof in the middle of next week. I’ll do a final read-through on that myself. Even if I find things that need fixing (and I always have on the previous books), I’ll do those corrections and format for Kindle right away and upload ebook versions to Amazon and B&N within a day. Then it’s up to those sites how fast the book appears for sale.
It’s extremely encouraging to have readers waiting so eagerly for a book of mine. I sure hope when all is said and done you think it was worth the wait.
