So it actually happened!! Thanks to Greg's (my editor) fantastic and fast work, I was able to actually get this book finished and on sale for the fourth of July weekend. It has been a VERY stressful few days, to say the least.
For the first 90 days, the Into the West: To Save Them All eBook will only be available on Amazon.com as part of the Kindle Unlimited program. I will open it up to Barnes and Noble's Nook after the first 90 days. I forgot to change that on Into the West: Most Wanted after the first 90 days. I have since cancelled the Kindle Unlimited program for it, but I cannot open it up to B&N until September 13th, when the current Kindle Unlimited agreement runs out.
I made a mistake yesterday while I was loading everything up on Barnes and Noble Booksellers website. I hit publish on the eBook by mistake. Since I have it set to be exclusive with Amazon for 90 days, I cannot sell it on B&N yet. When you hit publish on these sites, things are not automatic, the files have to go through a review process that can take hours to days. I was up until about 4 AM waiting for the book to go live on the site so I could immediately take it off sale. Usually, I do not even load the files up until I am ready to publish them just so these kinds of things do not happen. I think I will be going back to that practice!
I have been up until about 4 or 5 AM the last 3 or 4 days trying to get everything set and ready for this new release and the free download for July 2nd -4th of the Into the West: A New Home - Special Edition which contains part one, Into the West: The Orphan Train, and part two, Into the West: A New Home, in one download. I am so glad things actually came together. I need a break!
I am going to take some time off and just relax and read a bit before I get back to finishing part six, Into the West: Last Showdown. It is almost finish and should not take long to wrap it up but, like I just wrote, I need a break. I really think I can get this finished and to Greg to edit by the end of the month. With any luck I can set a presale date for this next one so I will not be rushing to get it out next time.
But now I think it is definitely time for some laughs!
Have a great weekend, Posse!
