Apparently some people who have purchased Corruptor from various online vendors have received emails that shipment will be delayed at least one month, until the end of December. This is a great way to kill a new author, guys. Really.
This is unacceptable.
Has anyone besides Allan received this email? I know a few people haven’t received their books yet out by me, and they pre-ordered them the minute they went on sale at B&N.com. I mean, I don’t think I’ve sold more than 2,000 books this past week. If I did, wouldn’t have have had some inkling? Wouldn’t my publisher be calling me and saying “Guess what, Jason? Your first print run is at 100% sell-through!”?
Slim as it may be, it is entirely possible this happened. Unlikely, but possible…
Update – 2104 EST: Just got word that B&N.com has shipped books out, which means that the delay is in the other vendor or some credit card snafu. Good thing I didn’t, you know, flip out or anything…
