THE BAD NEWS
I haven't got the Twelvemos yet.
I have been given more excuses and more excuses....
THE GOOD NEWS
I haven't given up!
Through the powers of social media , via an online friend I have never met (who had a dream of Twelvemo and told me about it) I have now been put in touch with someone over the other side of the world who has experience of this sort of thing. They have kindly offered to contact the factory on my behalf and see if they can find out what is happening for me.
THE MIDDLING NEWS
I may have to chalk this one down to experience and start again with a new factory.
RATS! (This is an expletive understatement of massive proportions).
However next time it will be a factory that has been recommended to me. And I have learned that there are people out there who can help with this (called 'sourcing agents' and 'quality controllers') and loads of forums where you can get advice. I didn't know any of this when I started this whole thing a year ago.
Still.... Just because I may have made an expensive mistake it doesn't mean the whole Twelvemo concept is not worth bothering with any more.
So sorry for the delay but Twelvemo will go out into the world eventually, I am am determined, and I have a much better prototype to work from now (because the factory did do the prototyping work for me very well.
So... Be patient.... I am.
SO WATCH THIS SPACE!
Just don't put the rest of your life on hold while you do so. (I'm not!)
