I was always told the book was coming out on the 2nd, but apparently the official shipping date is the 17th. I just confirmed this with the publisher. A lot of orders with Amazon apparently were saying that the book was sold out or asking if you wanted to cancel as they were unable to ship! Supposedly all is under control and the book will be shipping soon.
You can still buy the book early on Saturday, September 13th at the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market where I'm doing a short demo and book signing. And of course on Sunday, the 14th, we'll have the book for sale at Jimtown Store for our book signing party from 2-5pm. I'm sure there's going to be a Harry Potter-type reaction to the book so please buy early and often!
