I promise not to go on a tyrant about this Covid-19 stuff but I am so sick of all the lies and deceit that is being spouted. “Masks are dangerous, – wear a mask constantly, – millions are dead from this virus, – it’s air born now, – no it isn’t air born, – shut down the churches because its caused from singing,” etc, etc, etc.
The CDC, WHO, The little “professional weasel” (Fauci) and others have finally admitted they have deliberately misrepresented, (to put it mildly,) the numbers of cases, deaths, causes, etc. These so-called “experts” have thrown the American people (especially the “sheep”) into an abyss so dark only God can dig deep enough to pull us out, for the sole purpose to fulfill an evil political agenda. (my blog, my opinion)
It has infected, not the virus, but the lies, everything we have ever stood for and everything, seemingly, in our lives, including the publishing industry. I have been sitting on pins and needles for the past few weeks waiting to receive my copies of my new novel, Amy’s Quest.
I’ve been telling some of my reading fans, “I’m expecting it any time now. Hang in there.” Yesterday I received an e-mail from my publisher… talk about disappointed, and yes I was also angry.
It hasn’t even gone to print yet!
I thought it was going to print almost five weeks ago! When I submitted my approval for the cover design I neglected to notice the subtitle was left off and I approved the cover. My bad but no big deal because the subtitle was merely “A novel.”
Because of the totally blown out of proportion and exaggerated threat of a virus (I know people have died and some have underlying conditions so don’t go there) the production people at the publishers is still working from home, and (God forbid they aren’t wearing a mask) so things are going slower than normal.
The e-mail informed me that the “A novel” subtitle was left off of the cover and if I want it added then it will be even longer to print the books. Guess what my reply was? “Don’t bother adding it at this point! I do not want more delays.”
So for all those who have sat on those same pins and needles in anticipation of having my latest suspense novel in your hot little hands, hold on. Eventually we will have the finished product and can sit back (hopefully not by a fireplace in the middle of winter) reading and enjoying a good story.
And you don’t need to wear a
while you read. (unless you’re in a hospital)
Thanks for putting up with me.
