So...Good News/Very Bad News

I woke up and finally filled in all the info for Pit of No Return on Amazon, but while doing so noticed that since my last time publishing in February they've changed their timeline for publishing to not be a 24 hour window (reasonable) but now 72 hours (are you fucking serious!?!?!).

This is...very shitty.

As such I've already pressed the button to publish just moments ago instead of waiting. might have the book in a couple hours.  Or you might not have it until Wednesday.

And there's nothing I can do about it.

Drone deliveries?  Sure.

Walk Out Computerized Grocery Stores?  No problem.

Making KDP a precise process?  Never.


  1. Let the refreshathon commence!

  2. I just got in on amazon so it seems to have been put up nice and quick

  3. Well, I guess it wouldn't be release without turning into a minor clusterfuck...

  4. They did that because they want us to make our books available for pre-order. If you set up your book and give it a release date more than 72 hours in the future the Amazon site will let people pre-order the book, and then it becomes available at the beginning of your go-live date.
