From someone who works at one of the companies involved in publishing our book:

The issue with this book is that the record is locked. What this means is that either Encounter or the publisher has made a sticky change at the accounts to one or more of the data pieces for the book. It is therefore difficult to get other changes to override the sticky change.

What does this mean for the information at online accounts? Unfortunately, the best thing to do in this case is wait. The changes will take place, but it will take some time.

I wonder what the phrase “some time” means. A few days? Weeks? Next year? Meanwhile, it is physically impossible for anyone to order the book.

I have started referring to it as “the book that Amazon does not want you to read.”

Don’t be surprised if my mood is more sour than usual.
