The Sweet Water Affliction

It’s book launch day!

But it’s not all great. The almighty powers of Amazon are giving me problems with publishing the paperback. I am positive it’s a misunderstanding, but I have yet to talk to an actual human that doesn’t just copy/paste responses to me. I’m incredibly frustrated. They told me they found part of my content for sale elsewhere, but won’t elaborate further. And I don’t have a way to prove I’m the author in a way that satisfies them. Considering I have self-published everything, I have no contracts with a publisher. I am also the only author, so I don’t have a contract giving me the rights from someone else. I have filed for copyright, but it can take a month or longer to finalize. And I’m not sure if they’ll take down the e-book as well if I can’t get it straightened out.

So. Bittersweet. But the e-book is currently live and ready for everyone. If amazon takes it down, it will still be available on Barnes and Noble, Kobo, and Apple Books. Google books should be live in the next few days as well.

If anyone else has struggled with this and has any advice on what I can do, please let me know. I am so upset that this has stolen the thunder of my day.
