Here We Go Again

Wild Child Publishing bumped COLD BLOODED to a November 22ond release date. Actually, I'm not disappointed because if this novel would have been released on time as promised, it would mean the cosmic balance had been disrupted. I'm glad I didn't pump up the release date all over the place. I'm safe here. Only a few friends and some folks I have locked in my closet visit the blog. I guess I better start writing up some entertaining posts until the 22ond. I nearly went full psycho watching Herman Cain's high tech lynching. It must be a real thrill to reach out for your fifteen minutes of fame after a couple decades by making up unsubstantiated libel to destroy a man's reputation simply because he doesn't believe in the same things you do. Anyway, I will announce any other boulders in the path of COLD BLOODED's release as they happen.  :)

I've learned to never talk up any release or potential release. The snags along the way are worse than the Mississippi river.

That's for sure, Charles. The funny part is they send you promotional packets and ploys to hype the event and then send an e-mail the day of the release bumping it to a different date. Luckily, I had a feeling I shouldn't go overboard until it actually happened. It's getting to be like Charlie Brown with Lucy holding the football before she yanks it out from under him at the last second. :)

It sure is a modern day attack tactic, bernard.

Starting with Clarence Thomas and used almost constantly these days, the unsubstantiated claims of impropriety are the smear weapon of choice.

Much because todays media instantly gives it credence and demands to have proof of the slandered persons innocence rather than proof of the allegation.

Now, anyone can make a claim and torpedo someone else's efforts on a whim. And with little to no consequences. Its a heads I win, tails you lose proposition for the accuser.

I agree, whydibuy, and where do the people slandered go to get their reputations back. I think the answer to a lot of these is to stop paying these people off to avoid nuisance lawsuits. When the food industry prosecuted a few of those nutballs claiming they were poisoned, and sent them to prison, the claims about bugs, rats, fingers, etc. in packages disappeared. These firms have lawyers on retainer. They should use them. Not just with the sexual harassment claims, but also when poverty pimps like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton show up to play their race card extortion racket.

Sorry to hear about the delay! But I'm still going to look forward to your release, Bernard--good Lord willing & da creek don't rise, lol.
Hang in there!

What was weird, Raine, was bumping it on the actual release date morning. If I wasn't as suspicious and pessimistic of nature as I am I would have been all over posting the release date on the sites I belong to. Until it is offered on site for sale I won't be mentioning it again. The creek's spilled over the banks on this one long ago. :)
