Well, that’s what writers think, anyway. In the world of publishing, pre-orders are everything. I always pre-order from my favorite writers. It’s a nice little surprise to open my mailbox e-reader and find the new book waiting for me on its day of publication. Or when I get that “your book is in” call from the local bookshop. Or when the dogs herald the Most Holy Arrival via UPS. Here are a few more reasons I love pre-orders.
My publisher’s web site (and my own, come to think of it) features links to pre-order from many of your favorite retailers. And for those who prefer to get their books from the library, you can file a request at your local branch. Most libraries have a way to do this on their web sites, but you can always go old school and turn in a paper form. Here’s a sample:
