Sometime later today, hoping the inbox has a few emails from the chosen ones.
Four days ago sent seven copies (only 10 in print) of the book to seven of the most active MLC supporters.
The three others copies? Keeping the original I read (and reread – 10 times so far), one copy voluntarily sent for an audit, and one copy to frame (or something) for posterity.
The spine was printed incorrectly, so ten corrected copies just arrived a few days ago. Ten free copies to review and share are a typical first step in the printing process.
Delayed a month. No fault on the author’s part.
Am grateful it was only a month delay.
Grateful to be able to afford to self-publish.
Grateful for an amazing book designer.
Grateful even, for the publisher and printer who somehow misfired, but made it right (even though i had to initiate the logical service recovery).
These are first world challenges that in the big picture, are trivial.
