Failure to Launch

In my attempt to schedule a pre-order for my latest book, I missed the up load dead line. As a penalty, I will not be able to sign up for pre-orders for a year with amazon.

Its not the end of the world, it is disappointing and I am able to still launch my book. I hadn’t made any pre order sales so fortunatly I didn’t have to disappoint any fans. So there’s that.

My newest book should be live late tonight or early tomorrow morning, Amazon working its magic over night.

It is just an anti-climatic ending to a greatly anticipated event that fell off the rails at the very last minute.

I got in fights with my husband over the release of this book after working 8 to 12 hours a day for weeks on this book.

I worked so much on this book that I dreamed of the characters and grew sick of going over and over the same plots of this book.

I hope for those that read my book can feel the blood sweat and tears that got poured in to the making of it, over a year of writing and most of febuary this year.

I made my self sick, now I’m dealing with having the flu and trying to catch up on housework and child care, all put aside in my efforts on this book.

Its been relaunched, in fact it will have an earlier release date than originally anticipated, which I find kinda funny.

Any other writers out there who have experienced a failure to launch, how did you deal with it?

I enjoy creating and writing fantasys, turning them into full fledged novels inbetween helping my kids with home work and chasing after my three year old, almost four now. I love the rain, the sound and smell as it patters against the roof of my house. I love helping animals although I'm not a foster dog or cat mom as I would never have the heart to rehome them. I have an Emotional Support Dog, a queensland heeler who resembles a potato more than a dog and two cats, one for my oldest and one for the rest of them. I am the slave of two green cheek conures who keep me distracted and make it difficult to get anything done. I manage in my own little way to keep chugging along. There always seems to be more madness than method to go around.
