Just got yer book right here, Amos, and I am shocked to see that it's openly admitted to be a work of fiction! That means it's just a buncha lies! I expected better from you, mister.

Still, I paid for it, so I guess I'll read it. Lies, after all, can sometimes be worth readin' just for the entertainment value, right?

Hmm. The dedications... Who are these people? And how come I am not on the list of them you are profusely thankin' for providin' support and inspiration?

Oh, I get it. You left me off coz of it bein' a buncha lies, right? Didn't want to embarrass me by association, right? Okay, then.

Hmmm. Well, here we go...Chapter 1.

Well, I looked. I wanted to read that delightful novel beyond the Cascade. I took all of it off the shelf, the powder type and the tablets and all, and piled it on the floor.

No novel, delightful or otherwise.

So I emptied all the boxes, in case it was beyond that. No novel, but I don't think they'll ever let me back into Walmart.

I shall delay until such time as I am able to insert it into my bedtime reading lying in bed with a book I can FEEL. I have not done so in four months as I am distracted with other things, especially with an environmental and social cause. Alas, I have just taken on another. This one shall be even far more challenging as the people up in arms over it are more concerned with their arms than addressing the big picture in a logical and thoughtful approach while the corporations and politicians push their buttons and smoke and mirror them. Sigh. So sad when ya gotta fight ignorance on YER OWN SIDE ta get anywhere against the other side. Nobody ever said being a social reformist and environmental hero would be easy but this shit is gettin me down.

Fell ill with no chance of recovery.

Which they did, when they died, with some shrubbery.

It's just the beginning, Amos. Soon your name will be a household word, and you won't be able to venture out on the street without being hounded by autograph hunters and weird, skinny, freckled girls in Birkenstocks who gush, "I'm your biggest fan!" I'll hear other people talking about your book at coffee shops, and I'll casually say, "I know him. He's an old friend of mine. we chat on a daily basis." Yup, this oughta be good. I can't wait for it to start happening.

Well, I tweaked the e-book and it is undergoing delivery to umpty-ump distributors. They lag as follows:

iBookstore        Delivered 06/12/2013        Your eBook should be up for sale in approximately 3-6 weeks from when we deliver to them.
Sony        Delivered 06/13/2013        Your eBook should be up for sale in approximately 3-4 weeks from when we deliver to them.
Amazon Kindle        Delivery in Process 06/12/2013        
Barnes & Noble        Delivered 06/13/2013        Your eBook should be up for sale in approximately 2-4 weeks from when we deliver to them.

Kobo        Delivered 06/12/2013        Your eBook should be up for sale in approximately 2-3 weeks from when we deliver to them.

Baker & Taylor        Delivered 06/12/2013        Your eBook should be up for sale in approximately 2-3 weeks from when we deliver to them.

Copia        Delivered 06/12/2013        We do not currently have an estimate for eBooks going live at Copia. We are delivering eBooks to them but there is a delay in their process for making a delivered ebook available for purchase on their site.

Gardner's        Delivered 06/12/2013        Your eBook should be up for sale in approximately 3-4 weeks from when we deliver to them.

eSentral        Delivered 06/12/2013        Your eBook should be up for sale in approximately 2-3 weeks from when we deliver to them.

Scribd        Delivered 06/12/2013        Your eBook should be up for sale in approximately 2-3 weeks from when we deliver to them.

Even though Amazon is listed as "delivery in process", whatever that means, they will probably be the first up for public access.

It's been an interesting process, and a long long journey, I must say,

The hard copy had some tweaks to be done but I have now uploaded the final improved version. It will end up costing about $10 more than the e-book, worth it for those who love the feel of real bookstuff in their hands. I hope you get it, one way or the other, and enjoying the many threads and colors in it.

The hard copy version has been processed and a galley proof is on its way for blessing, We shall see. The e-book should be blessed next week sometime or after I get back from Alaska. I will be cavorting around Juneau with La Belle Chanteuse K.T. !! Whoa!

So shortly after the 13th all the distributions will begin showing up. Yay us!

The great thing about this, after all this time, is my plate is suddenly about to be clear to start on a long-deferred CD and a second book. Whoof, whoof, whoof!

All righty, then! The final-final file is safely ensconced in the dank interior of BookBaby's gigantic server. As soon as they can process it, we will get it blessed and delivered-- to Amazon firat, others following according to their lag.

I owe a great deal of thanks to many Mudcatters for their encouragement in getting this very large project through to completion, in particular to the benevolence of WYSIWIG and the fiery insight of Jen Oaks, whose presence int hese halls is sorely missed. Some of you may vaguely recall when I swore I was dropping out of Mudcat to concentrate on this book, a vow I could not bear to keep. That was many years back, and the book is scarcely recognizable after all the improving it has undergone since then.

But now it is done and on its way to the world, and we shall see how fertile the ground on which it doth fall. :D

Well, the folks at Book Baby sent me the review of the epub file and I found some flaws, so I rejected it. I will be sending int he revised file today. I have to say Book Baby's phone support is excellent, but they have a neurotic robomailer who keeps sending me emails about the epub file. The human support gal kindly suggested I ignore them. :D

So the new file goes in by end of today, new and improved!

Sorry for the delay. I'll announce the new release date as soon as I know it.
