Unfortunately someone emailed me that their book store didn’t have it yet, which made me call my local book store and they told me that although they had the book on order it hadn’t come in.
I emailed the bow-tied one to see if there was a distribution problem–I also haven’t gotten my author copies–and he told me not to sweat it because we hadn’t reached the release date yet.
Which proves what I’ve said all along, that editors have no concept of time.
So anyway, I’m not sure if your store has copies yet, but it should, and if it doesn’t, then you should demand in a loud voice that they get it in soon because obviously there is going to be a rush on the limited first edition copies and things could turn ugly like they did years ago when shoppers were trampling each other to get Tickle Me Elmos.
Maybe we can create a frenzied shopping demand for the book. I’d be happy with that.
