At long last, the book is available for sale. It took a few days to get through all the copy edits and then a few last minute tweaks, then I hit the big old publish button. A few hours later, it was live … except in the US, Japan, India and Canada. I’m not sure if there is just some lag in the system for certain countries. I contacted support, they said they’d look into it and I never heard back, but the book soon went live on the US and Canadian stores. As of this writing it’s still listed as unavailable for purchase in India and Japan. It may resolve itself, but I’ll keep pushing on it anyway.
As mentioned previously, the whole process was a great experience and feels like a big accomplishment to have pulled it off from inception to being in the store, all under my own steam.
Anyway, go get it if this is the kind of thing you’re interested in. I hope you enjoy it. If so, it would be really nice to start seeing some good reviews stacking up there.
