Is marylou on this board? I contacted her via e-mail and she told me that it works via paypal. I wanted to answer her, but somethings wrong with my e-mail account. Does anybody know if amazon will put it on pre order again? Because last time I checked I read something like out of print?

Because I have a problem. I live in germany, and I don't have paypal. so I'm not able to order it from the website. My only chance to recieve the book is via amazon, germany. sad

Sorry that you're having an issue. FIRST OF ALL, Amazon has it listed INCORRECTLY! It's actually a pre-order at the moment with a release date of December 14. Obviously "out of stock" as it isn't available yet!!! Duane Tudahl has had the same issue. It may have to do with the fact that Amazon is not the one publishing it ... they have their own program for self-publishers and it's more expensive (I would have had to sell the paperback for $24.99 instead of $19.99 if I had gone directly through Amazon). Perhaps it's a way to "punish" self-publishers???? I'm going through a worldwide distributor which ALSO makes their books available through Amazon. They are in the process now of marketing/selling to other online. as well as brick and mortar stores. But, You definitely can pre-order through Amazon (or Barnes and Noble online).

You may not WANT a paypal account, but it is VERY handy for MANY purchases as they are an extra safeguard in online purchases. You can use either a bank account OR credit card.

PLEASE let me know if I can help in any way and THANKS!!!!

It's not that I don't want a PayPal biggrin I'm not able to get one. Because I'm recieving money from our social system (I hope I got this right biggrin) in germany.And if you get money from them you don't get a PayPal account :/ only people with a constant income get one

My understanding is that anyone can get a PayPal acct ... doesn’t have to do with income at all - merely a way to send and receive money. Check the link I’ve pasted here.

.

My understanding is that paypal is a weaponized bankster-like entity that uses its services as a policitcal tool to wow Uncle Sam.

Furthermore their services are not actually cheap.

So the situation that an actual bank transfer cannot be cheap and swift (no pun) enough to compete is at least weird when we know it is 2017 and IT has progressed since the past few decades.

Certain countries still wait for `checks` to `clear`....

The FRUSTRATIONS of self-publishing...Amazon has done it again! This time, they have dropped OFF the hardcover and said the paperback is "out of print" ... HUH? It hasn't even been released yet! Release date is December 14th and it is in pre-orders now. Barnes and Noble have it RIGHT so consider them as the right place to go to pre-order. I am very sorry for this and am working with my distributor to fix the issue. What's with Amazon? If you don't publish directly with them, are you punished?????? I will keep you all updated. Meanwhile, ANY and ALL notes that you, the fans, send directly to Amazon to put pressure on them is DEEPLY APPRECIATED!!!!!!!

That is the corporate machine for you. All these huge corporations try to bully out any of their smaller competitors by doing shit like this. Just boycot Amazon completely and buy your stuff somewhere else.

RIP Prince: thank U 4 a funky Time!

Yes, Duane's book is finally starting to reach people. I'm sure my issues will be sorted eventually also. Definitely a challenge! I haven't started Duane's book yet but from everything I've heard, it's a ripper!

ANOTHER Book update for MOMENTS - REMEMBERING PRINCE (you tired of all this yet?????)

What I've discovered is that a VERY small revision I made on the back cover and turned into the printer put the book ON HOLD!!!!! The revision goes through an approval process which is taking longer than normal because of the Christmas rush. The distributor is trying to rush it. Because the book is on hold (not even out yet - go figure), retailers are picking it up as an "out of print" title. So, people who have already pre-ordered through Amazon, etc., have found their orders cancelled.

Fear not --- this WILL be fixed in the next few days and new orders can be placed. Stay tuned here as I will continue to update everyone. Once it's fixed, anyone can go in and order the book.

I REALLY appreciate everyone's patience.
Meanwhile, I do hope everyone has a lovely holiday season.

Agree with Lovejunky, Marylou - very appreciative that you are keeping us updated. I was in the group that Amazon cancelled; I'll be reordering your book when it is available. I'm certain that I will enjoy reading it as it sounds wonderful!

May you have a joyous holiday season, as well xmas

I REALLY appreciate the support! I have now been able to approve the new version of the hardcover (still waiting for the notification on the paperback). So, with a bit of luck (and not knowing what kind of delay the Christmas shopping craziness could delay things), Amazon should have it re-listed at some point next week.

Of course, I will let everyone know. I would be curious ... IF anyone who ordered and then was cancelled on the book ... I wonder if Amazon re-alerts people who pre-order a book and it comes back on line?????? Probably not
