“The new books are here! The new books are here!”
Just arrived via UPS, and still cold to the touch from being outside.
If I’ve got my copies, that means the book should soon be on its way to book sellers. Though it carries an “official” publication date of December 31st, it could start showing up in stores starting as early as next week or so, depending on when store folks get it unboxed and entered into their inventory systems and out to the shelves. Bear with those nice people; it’s a crazy time of year, after all.
Of course, the book is positioned perfectly for holiday shopping, and for using those gift cards you’ll soon be getting, so you know…act accordingly.
