The publishing date for The Modest Proposal: An Old Path to a New Future is getting closer, too close for this anxious author because there seems too much to do before it happens. No matter, everything will be done and it will be released.
Everyone else has done their part. And almost all the files are back from the folks formatting the book for e-books and hard copy books and that’s really the final step. The only thing missing is the author needs to put some serious thought into little things like an interesting book description and author bio – that last part is particularly hard to do. To give you an example of why that is hard. Today I tried to do a review for a recent Kindle purchase from Amazon and I got a notice that said some thing like this (I can’t remember the exact words):
“We can’t accept your review. You have violated our Community Guidelines.”
I was quite thrilled by this – never having knowingly offended any Community Guidelines before. Sadly, and fortunately I guess, when I called and asked them about it they said it was a mistake. Something was wrong with their system. It seems I’m not the desperado I thought I’d become. My bio will probably reflect that.
