rake release Hangs on New Gem Submission

I'm trying to release my first gem to Ruby Gems. The gem is working great locally.

I'm releasing it using:

$rake release

Which gives me this in the console:

example_gem 0.0.3 built to pkg/example_gem-0.0.1.gem 
Tagged v0.0.1
Pushed git commits and tags

Then the process hangs. I waited 20 mins, then cancelled.

When I tried to release again I got:

rake aborted!
This tag has already been committed to the repo.

So I assumed the gem had been successfully submitted, however 16 hours later, the gem is not under my account on Ruby Gems.

So I bumped the version and tried again using --trace, but the process hangs in the same place with only the following additions to output:

** Invoke release (first_time)
** Execute release
example_gem 0.0.3 built to pkg/example_gem-0.0.3.gem
Tagged v0.0.3
Pushed git commits and tags

What is going wrong?

Gem repo is here

    Can you just gem push ? There's a entire guide on this here:
