WE ARE EXPERIENCING TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES…
Sometimes life doesn’t always go as planned…
We planned to release The Key by Jennifer Anne Davis in Kindle Format through Amazon on November 15, 2013. We even tried to plan ahead and we published it as early as the day prior to make sure we didn’t run into any delays with the 12 hour window Amazon gives you. We planned a huge release day book blitz and we planned an amazing release party for Friday evening.
What we didn’t plan on was to run into technical difficulties that are still yet to be unexplained by Amazon. Unfortunately, Friday, November 15th came around and while The Key showed up on Amazon, it was still sitting in review status with no purchase links for the many fans of Jennifer Anne Davis to download it. (In fact, as I write this blog post on Saturday afternoon, the Key is still not available for Kindle purchase.)
So, What do you do when you’ve been planning a huge book release and things don’t go according to plan? Well, we could have done this….
But instead we did this…
We partied! And we are still partying! (Join The Party.) The show must go on! There was no use wasting a perfectly good Book Blitz and Release Party because of Amazon’s technical difficulties. We had an amazing party last night celebrating the scheduled release for The Key even though the book wasn’t available. We even extended the party through next Friday! We are so grateful to all of our readers who showed up to the party and helped to encourage Jennifer Anne Davis on a day that could have been quite frustrating for her because of the delays. We hope that many more will stop by and encourage Jennifer who has been so gracious and understanding under a circumstance that I’m sure was quite disappointing for an excited author.
Free Gift with Purchase of THE KEY!
Within these pages lie kingdoms with castles and princes who fall in love with fair maidens, but make no mistake, this is no fairytale.

There could be many things that affected the delayed release of The Key in digital format through Amazon. Let’s make some educated guesses as to what caused the delay. Post your guess as a comment to this blog post or as a comment on our Release Party Facebook Wall for a chance to win. A random winner will be chosen on Monday, November 18th, to win their choice of 3 Clean Teen Publishing Digital Books of their choice! A $10 Value!
Here are our guesses:
1. Full Moon.
2. Crazed Unicorns Took Over Amazon.
3. A Glitter Explosion Caused a Temporary Shut Down of Publishing Servers.
4. Squirrels playing with light sabers caused drivers to stop in the middle of the road, resulting in a huge traffic jam delaying Amazon employees from making it to work!
5. The team at Amazon was so intrigued when reading The Key that they completely forgot to press the publish button.
What do you think happened?
Feel free to include pictures in your response. 🙂 We could all use a good laugh.
