Amazon and The New School

Several of you have mailed or commented about the New School being “delayed” from Amazon. I apologize, this was a surprise to me. What our publisher says:

Because of their set-up, Amazon has been taking longer to get a book
available for shipping. As you can see this causes problems when they
list the pub date as being the same date books are available from the
publisher. They have just very recently changed their practices and now
post pub dates on their sites that better reflect when THEY will be
set-up to ship the book to customer. However, they had not put this into
practice when originally setting your book up in their systems hence the
“change in availability” date.

So the pipeline is working, although it didn’t set expectations properly here. Next time, I’ll link to the publisher site, not Amazon.
