Sometimes Waiting is the Hardest Part

So, as of now, the Kindle version of Servants & Thieves is available for purchase at Amazon. The print version is also ready and on its way, but Amazon hasn’t posted that version yet nor linked it with the e-book. Once all that happens, I’ll be posting that we’re ready to sell books, the Lord willing.

That being said, it will likely be another week until the dust settles. Meanwhile, I have my marching orders for this month and next. I’ll be working on research, preparing a new promo video for the completed book, and starting November 1 I’ll be writing like crazy with NaNoWriMo. That should get me started on book three. After all that, it’s back to book two for the final thorough edit, and then massive proofreading before I can release that one. Think spring, probably.

But wouldn’t it be nice to just have it all done? I’m reminded of Paul, who said, “For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain. If I am to go on living in the body, this will mean fruitful labor for me. Yet what shall I choose? I do not know! I am torn between the two: I desire to depart and be with Christ, which is better by far; but it is more necessary for you that I remain in the body.” (Phil. 1:21-24) I think that goes for anything we wish to be done with: it is better live in the moment we have.

Hopefully, next time, everything will be ready and the season of marketing can begin.
