Trying to get the book Phicklephily published in 2017 – Update

Happy Holidays one and all!

I finished the book back around the end of October after working on it for a year all the while working on my blog.  thought once I uploaded it I’d be published. Not so and much to the disappointment of myself and my followers. For that I am sorry.

We’ve had several setbacks and challenges. Apparently it’s not a few keystrokes and downloads and you have a book on Amazon Kindle. There are so many things that can go wrong in the production of a completed book.

I don’t know what went wrong. It’s a large tome and I’m sure there are a miariad of technical glitches that can prevent the production of a usable book on their system. I think of all of the people that have helped me along the way. I think of the guys and girls working at their jobs everyday to feed their families and pay their bills that work at Amazon Kindle. At this moment there are people making their living trying to get my book live on Amazon. For that good work, i am grateful.

I’m a patient man and I know the first is always the hardest. Once we break the seal on this one, I think the next books will be fine. I have so much more to produce.

Here’s where we are right now. I got this email today.
