It turns out my book won’t be released in San Jose this weekend.
There is a possibility that another book in my queue might go out in its place but there’s a chance that might never happen. I might only see two copies of it- one for myself and one for the friend who’s driving me to Berkeley- and these will be ultra-limited pre-release copies with no edits done to the text.
I might go all the way to San Jose and not have a book to release. I am livid because this comes down to issues that should have been brought up about the text months ago when I was sending it to friends to read and critique or when I first submitted it to my publisher. Instead, it gets brought up at the last moment. Fucking outrageous.
To add insult to injury, this book is a sequel to the first book I wrote, which has only sold 15 copies in the space of two years.
I feel I have the right, at this stage, to be in a shitty mood for a few days.
