I ordered books from a printer about two weeks ago so I could have them available as soon as possible. The book order got delayed by a little over a week, so unfortunately the books are not here. However, when I noticed my book was already up on Amazon earlier this week, I ordered myself a copy. Hey, I wanted to make sure I was the first one to get my hands on it! It said it would arrive tomorrow, but thankfully it sat waiting in my mailbox for me by the time I got home today. I am keeping this copy for myself, but the next one I get my hands on is going straight to Julian.
They sure do make a good pair. :)
I'd like to say that everything launched smoothly today, but alas, it did not all go as planned. Should I have expected differently, considering the nature of the story held within those books? The one main glitch we ran into had to do with a technological issue that prevented my book from being added to the link I attached to absolutely everything I used to launch the book: all my Pinterest and Canva quotes, all the guest blog posts scheduled far in advance, even my own blog post today with all the quotes on it.
ABH suggested I change the link to the Amazon link on all the quotes, blogs, etc., for the time being. When I realized how much work that might entail to change it all now and then change it back once it's on the website, I decided to just accept it as another way Satan is trying to work against me. The damage is done, I can't change it, it is what it is.
First thing this morning, I gave the day over to God. This little glitch didn't surprise Him, and He allowed it. I will just hope that anyone truly interested in the book would have known enough to search on Amazon when they didn't find it attached to the ABH link I provided.
I am so grateful for the beautiful reviews that are already posted. I believe they speak for themselves. I will post them on another blog post soon.
(By the way, we touched base with Julian this morning and again this evening for his birthday, and he had a really great day in the company of good friends.)
