I finally heard from my publisher. It seems he has been tied up with business and private issues.
That’s the good news.
The bad is that Coming of Age will not be published for “…At least several weeks,” which means I will miss the Christmas market and about 25% of my sales.
Needless to say I’m not happy, but there is precious little I can do about it.
It is just another example of people not doing the job expected of them. Everything … Everything, I have undertaken since September, and paid good money to get done, has had to be done twice to get it right: My flight arrangements, my credit card, my medicines, have all been screwed up.
About the only thing they have done right is to collect the money.
