Why pre-order? Frankly, because it helps me. Pre-ordered books count towards first week sales numbers which gives the book the best chance of hitting best seller lists. Plus, strong pre-order numbers can inspire my publisher to print more books, which focuses both the publisher and booksellers on the book’s prospects. So, if you can pre-order, I’d really appreciate it!
Where to pre-order? Your local independent bookstore, Amazon, Waterstones, Penguin Random House.
The fine print: Forward an email receipt or a photo of a paper receipt for the paperback edition only to firstname.lastname@example.org by June 29, 2016. Be sure to include your mailing address.
