But I'm still waiting for the file to clear the Amazon servers to go on sale. It could happen at any moment. Or a few days from now. Like all great acts of God, natural disasters and longevity of Japanese Prime Minister, we just don't know. I hope it makes it to people's Kindles before the end of the world, er, tomorrow or before folk have lost all interest in the election (that happened before it began — ed).
So, I have resigned myself to the fate that Guts Pose is unlikely to be a Christmas No. 1, and at this rate, it'll be lucky to make it on the virtual shelves this year. Ho hum.
But I console myself that had I tried to publish Guts Pose with a legacy publisher, a) they wouldn't have touched it even with a pair of kitchen chopsticks and b) even if they had, I wouldn't hear back form them for at least a month, probably six.
So, the wait continues, but it should be a matter of hours, not days.
Check in here to see if it's landed, if you care. If not, a Merry Christmas to you anyway.
