Gabriela: Tales From A Demon Cat Is Available!!!

If I were to say this hasn't been a battle I'd be lying. 

There are many things that led to the delay of this publication:

  1. Major factor was publishing program glitches. For several days, the files were approved by the publisher, but because of a glitch in their program, errors continually showed up in the final proofs. Things like a blank line suddenly appeared under a paragraph, that wasn't there on the file. That fixed, the next review showed a paragraph was no longer indented. I was pulling out my hair (don't worry, I have plenty) trying to get things that weren't my fault fixed. Then, when they discovered it was their program, I had to wait on the programmers to get their end fixed. 
  2. Procrastination, both on my part and that of others. I was so busy finalizing and editing that I delayed writing a "blurb" for the back cover of the book. Then, since the bio I had written was too long, I found it replaced with the one used on my first book, which had to be corrected. Between my own downfalls, as well as others being busy with personal responsibilities, I was fighting a deadline that could have been met if the first reason hadn't have come into play.
  3. Gabriela hexed this project. She thought it funny to see me going ballistic and soaking T-shirt after T-shirt in sweat worrying about getting it out. She's a true demon, and doesn't try to hide that fact in the least.
But, at this writing, the paperback is available for purchase, and the review is almost finalized for the Kindle version. I'll post both links below as soon as each becomes available.

So, there you have it. And, everyone thinks a writer has it easy. The pressure of trying to get a quality piece of writing out to the public is tremendous. I know, at least I'm not dealing with the heat outdoors. But, then again, you've never dealt with the heat around a demon cat!

I do thank all of you for your patience and support. It means more than you realize.

Many Thanks!
