I got off the phone with CreateSpace about an hour ago after a lengthy conversation.
I had forgotten that the final submission of a finished manuscript would show up on Amazon for five to ten days. Having promised the world availability today, it was an unpleasant letdown.
So I cleared the files for printing, ordered copies for myself, and went to play on Facebook while I let my subconscious figure out the next move: groveling was not a completely acceptable option.
Having worked my ire out with responding political rants on other people’s postings, I realized it was time to get to work on announcing the “Ooops” here, with a link to the Amazon placeholder page (which I knew would not display the second book for at least a week).
I discovered that, today at least for an hour, I am visibly beloved by Heaven.
Both books are posted! They are available! I just finished tying the link to the Home Page headline!
