Technical Difficulties

Argh.

It's ready to go, but I've hit the dumbest little wrinkle ever.

I loaded up Natural Consequences on Amazon about an hour ago, but I couldn't make the previewer work to double-check it... and so naturally that led me to uploading it and then discovering a small problem an hour later. It's not a huge issue, just a complete blank under the "About the Author" page, but I'd love to fix it before it goes live... and I don't know if I can. Oh, the glories of our global economy.

I can't really complain about Amazon. They made all this possible for me. But sometimes an "improvement" on their end isn't the most convenient thing in the world for me.

While working on that little wrinkle, I uploaded the book to Smashwords just to test it out, and immediately unpublished it (removing it from the site) within a minute... but some lucky bastard out there bought a copy in that tiny window of time!

At any rate, the book is really for reals coming very soon. Thank you all for your support and your patience!

UPDATE: As of 2:40pm PST, I have corrected and uploaded the book. There may still be a single line not quite centered on the copyright page, but I don't think anyone will care. Amazon says the book will be live within 12 hours. I will send out notices and I will upload it to Smashwords when I see it available.
