I think its the English publisher. I had the same problem with Acheron. I also purchase Christine Feehan and there has been delays with her books from the same publisher. It seems like the american publishers release their titles as advertised. I hope the authors that use this publisher will change them to a publisher that can deliver on time. CC
Your not the only one :( I have had the same issues as well with Piatkus and amazon but apparently I have heard that your better off ordering at the bookstores than with amazon. There are no problems there its just with amazon. I have noticed the same thing with other books as well like Berkely- I am still waiting for my order for Sarah McCarty's Promises Reveal and Mercury's War. Amazon states they are not released yet but already from amazon US.
I've been dealing with amazon.co.uk's Exec Cust rels office re this since Nov 2007 - I've suggested time and time again to them that they need buyers who are book fanatics and who know their business to get the right quantities ordered in, and then to keep on top of their suppliers. I've pointed out to them that authors such as S Kenyon, C Feehan, Lora Leigh have kind of a cultish following, but I've been told that my comments will fed back...no improvement as yet! Also, the way in which they allocate books is that first ordered, first in line for when copies do come in, and their recommendation is that once an order has been placed, do not go back in and 'tweak' it in any way, as this loses you your place in the queue. All one can do is feed this back and opefully they'll get their act together. Re US copies - try ordering from Borders, as they will post them, or if you choose to collect at one of their branches, there are no additional costs. They get the books direct from their US stores, so tend to get them in early. Hope this helps, Rita
