Yesterday morning, I called my contact person at the publisher to find out why they hadn't arrived already, since he'd said he was going to expedite my order over a week ago. He said he'd send a 'scathing email' to find out what happened. A few hours later, the mail carrier (not my regular guy, or he'd have rung the bell and carried them inside for me) dropped 3 cartons and 2 smaller packages of books on my front porch.
That must have been some email! Of course, now I have to deal with the 10 books I didn't order showing up with an invoice. Someday, somehow, we'll get it straight, I'm sure. But I have books! Beautiful books!
And, in due course, they'll hit the computer systems at Barnes & Noble and Amazon.
For some reason, B&N's system doesn't have the 'order it and we'll send it when it's available' feature the way Amazon does. But my contact told me the books have been shipped, so it's just a matter of waiting out the endless red tape of updating databases.
Now, I'm juggling three editing projects. A new book is on the back burner until I can get through those.
I hope you checked the recipes I added to my website yesterday. My daughter reminded me of another really quick and easy recipe I used to make all the time –
5 minute fudge.
