I’m at the airport right now heading off to the second part of my 2-week vacation. However, I’ve gotten a bunch of panicked e-mails from people who have ordered their books through Amazon and received an e-mail that the book is not available and that their order has been cancelled. I just wanted to say that I’m sorry for the inconvenience. I’d asked the folks at Information Today Books to let Amazon know about the delay, but they assured me that it wasn’t necessary and wouldn’t be a problem. Well, clearly that was not the case and I have to admit that I’m more than just a little annoyed about this since it certainly could hurt my sales. Please be assured that it WILL be available through Amazon.com in the very near future (probably a week or two) though you will be able to get it more quickly through Information Today as they will be receiving the book from the printers directly. Again, I’m sorry for any inconvenience this caused for anyone out there.
Now back to my vacation. New Mexico is fabulous, btw.
You may want to check with the folks at Information Today. I too got the Amazon notice. So I tried (two separate days) to order direct from Information Today, but their shopping cart system is timing out. I’ll try as often as I need to, but others may not be as persistent.
Good luck with the book. I’m anxious to read it!
