Pre-orders for books that have not yet been released will show a tentative release date, typically 3-4 weeks in the future. We offer a discount on the sales price of the book for all pre-orders. Once the book has been released, the discounted price will change to a higher price. If you have pre-ordered a book and it has not arrived within 14 business days AFTER the tentative release date, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org asking for an update on the status of your order. We will respond immediately and let you know when you might expect your order to arrive.
We do pre-orders to provide our authors with an early promotional opportunity and a higher royalty than they would receive from books sold directly on Amazon or elsewhere. We appreciate those of you who have pre-ordered a book and will do our best to get the book released and shipped as soon as possible.
