Plans, ideas, disruptions

And now I lay me down this oath to keep
A prayer, a wish, I need that’s steep

To one above, I swear this now
I will not forsake the pre-order vow

By end of month, this work to you
I will up load for other’s view

And if I fail, my promise keep
Then ever more the depths I reep

So with this prayer I solemnly give
I pray for all to know I live.

Amen

 

This has been running through my head since Wednesday, January 13,2016 when I got word back on the latest manuscript going out for publication.  There were a few big-ish problems, and it was recommended I delay the release.  I double checked with Amazon, and discovered I was caught in a double bind – if I delayed, I would not be able to set up another pre-order for twelve months, and if I didn’t get the final copy uploaded by the 21st, I would find myself in the same place.

I have worked feverishly on correcting the problems pointed out in the early chapters, and have gone through to verify there were no other major upsets lurking in any of the later pages.  If all goes well, I should have the final notes in from all the readers by Monday, which means with a little luck, a LOT of late nights, and no major new issues cropping up, my prayer will be answered.

Beslynx Spiritwalker’s novella WILL go out on time!  Now, if you will excuse me, I still have 30 or so pages to finish self-proofing before I enlist the aid of the next round of read/critique partners.  Blessed be!
