Um... what if it was already on fire? *looks sheepish*

I know you're away right now, but I'm confused by Amazon and wanted to go ahead and ask. Is Walking Dead being released early? As in, next week? I have it preordered, and Amazon just sent me an email saying they have updated release information for it and will be shipping it out on Monday.

Hope you're enjoying Belfast!

Monday is earlier than I would expect it to be shipped, but it's not impossible.

See, the Official Release Date, also known as the street date, is September 1. However, Luna (my publisher for the Walker Papers) actually releases books the Tuesday previous to the first of the month, so if the official date is Sept 1, even though Sept 1 is in this case a Tuesday, it means the book is very likely to be available by August 25th.

Furthermore, Barnes & Noble, for example, *frequently* puts the books out the, say, Saturday previous to its Tuesday release. So people are likely to start seeing it around the 22nd of August.

And Amazon is *utterly bizarre* and will sometimes ship books well in advance of the street date...and will sometimes not ship books that have been pre-ordered for weeks after everybody else has gotten them at the store.

Confused yet? :)

Ah. That all makes perfect sense. In any case, I'll be glad to have it! :)
