The thing about patience is …
The thing about patience is, it is NOT my virtue. Never has been, never will be.
I applied early decision to Cornell University because it’s the only place I wanted to go and I didn’t want to wait with the “rest” of the applicants to find out an answer. Turns out I *did* have to wait and I eventually got there, two years later … but that’s a whole other blog post.
Those of you who follow my weight loss journey know that it’s going slow and steady. I’m growing more patient about it by the day, but it’s not always easy. In fact, it’s almost never easy. I want the hard work I’m putting in today to show up tomorrow or, at the very least, the next week on the scale. But, it doesn’t always work like that. I’ve been stuck at the same weight for two weeks, currently.
So, it should come as no surprise to ME that my first book tackling spiritual/religious issues in a fictional way would be inexplicably held up somewhere in cyberspace. Even after I PATIENTLY waited two years to write this, until I felt it was the right time (hm, maybe two is a thing with me?). And, because God’s sense of humor is particularly dry with me, Jesus Freaks: Sins of the Father is live almost EVERYWHERE else on the planet EXCEPT the Amazon US store.

So *long sigh* I ask that you join me in trying to muster up some patience. I know most of you aren’t as impatient about this release as I am, but some of you are. I’ve received messages and seen funny posts in Randall’s readers about the waiting.
KDP assures me they’re “researching” the issue. Basically, they’ll get back to me eventually. I know this has happened/ is happening to some other self-pubbed authors as well. To you I say, *deep cleansing breath*. It’ll go on sale eventually. I hope in the next DAY because, HONESTLY?!?!?! This is the DAMN INTERNET! FIX IT!!! This is America!!!
*deep breath* Small tantrum over.
All I can do is hope and pray that when it does FINALLY go live, you all discover it’s been worth the wait.
