So apparently I was a bad, bad writer. I guess. At least this is the case according to Amazon. When I went to get the preorder for Spiritkind together the other day, I was unceremoniously informed that I am ineligible for creating preorders. The reason? ‘Past preorder activity.’ I have no idea what that actually means, though, so…
What this means is that I can’t, at the moment, put any of my upcoming books up for preorder, which sucks, since that’s easily my favorite way to handle launches and it makes my life rather more tricky. It also means that I am letting you guys know now— if you didn’t already know— that Spiritkind launches on Thursday, and I’m going to mention that again next week, so fair warning.
I’m not sure how I’m going to handle my next few books. It’s a pretty major inconvenience, to be honest, and it seems pretty random. I’ve read reports that some people managed to find out why (mostly due to canceled preorder processes and failure to post the final manuscript before the launch date,) and I’ve heard that a very small number of people have gotten through to an actual human at Amazon who is sometimes able to get the prison sentence reversed.
I doubt I’ll be that lucky, so I’m more than likely looking at a year of this nonsense. I’m not sure what to tell you other than keep your eyes out on Thursday. I would, however, suggest that you join my newsletter since that’s where announcements go out first and I might just have a few sneaky presents and things planned out for the next few months for newsletter readers. Just saying.
