Troubles In Author Land

I expected to have copies of An Axe to Grind in my hand by this time so I could plan my two book launches. Instead, there's been a problem.

The problem lies not with the publisher but the printer. I don't know the details, but there is a problem with the cover.

I've already ordered 50 copies. My blog tour begins next month--and next month is almost here--reviewers are waiting for their copies and I don't have any to send.

Of course this is the reason I didn't set up my book launches ahead of time--sweating it out while waiting for books is no fun. Been through that before and I know better.

Of course I'm eager--and anxious maybe, but eventually the problems will be ironed out and the books will come, maybe not in time for what I want them for, but they'll be here for other events down the line. I have two biggies coming up at the end of March, a booth at Celebration of the Whales in Channel Islands Harbor, Oxnard, and a group author signing at a bookstore in Morro Bay. Hopefully the books will arrive by then, because since the Axe to Grind and others in the series are set in a beach community, I always have people interested in buying them.

So that's my latest dilemma.

It's a good thing you're not sweating it, because I would be. I guess it's just one of those uncontrollable things you have to deal with as an author.

Can't wait to see the finished product!
