I'm very happy with the quality of the work being done on my cover and layout. However, they are taking much longer than expected. I submitted my work back on Jan 3rd, and I feel like it could be another two weeks at least before I see a finished product. Maybe longer.
As a result, there is no way I will be able to launch my book on February 14th like I had hoped. I won't lie. This disappoints me a great deal. I targeted that date three years ago when I set out on this project, and made every attempt to hit that goal. Alas, I won't.
Instead, I hope to put my book up for pre-order on that date. If I can manage that, I will still be happy. Wish me the best of luck. I think I'll need it :)
