Helpful hint from Hannah to all writers: Never, ever “promise” that your new release date will be “really” be the final one.
There’s no professional way to spin this, so I’ll go ahead and give you the simple truth: the proof of Once Upon My Mind did not get the “all clear” from my fellow Colbie Gray staff, and the book will not be ready to go on sale this Tuesday. I’m deeply sorry for this eleventh-hour development, especially after promising no more release date changes. My staff thinks Once is something really special and meaningful and doesn’t want me to rush an inferior product to the shelves.
The good news is that this should only be a short delay; I still hope to have the book out between this Friday (November 17th) and next Sunday (November 19th) in time for your (American) Thanksgiving weekend reading pleasure. I’ve learned my lesson, however, and will not set a new release date in stone until everything gets approved, which I hope will be sometime this mid-week.
