All of the above! I found out today, it will be another month before I get my print book. I'm still 7-10 days out for the proof and then I can order! Supposedly if WRP had stayed with the original press I'd have my books, but they moved to one who gives the bookstores a better cut. Which is good too, but I'd wished I known this before I forked out money to go to a conference, believing I'd be able to participate in the booksigning! That's money I could have saved and used somewhere else! Now I'm headed to a conference that I was all pumped about and all I can see is money going down the drain!
And with this info, it means my second book won't be in print till probably the end of November! Or even December!
I know I need to get over it and get to editing and writing, but it's like a special event - you are so hyped up to the day and the event then when it's over it's total let down, only I DIDN'T GET THE EVENT! I GOT THE LET DOWN!
Sorry- I'm not generally this pissy. Must be all that darn caffiene I drank on the way home from the chapter meeting to stay awake and then couldn't sleep when I got home!
