More Fun in the Amazon!

So, I've gotten reports from multiple people who ordered through Amazon that your ship dates have been pushed back from reasonable dates like March 20th and such all the way to the end of April or even into May.

1. I am aware of it.

Once is a fluke, three or more times is something serious.  I don't like it any more than you do.

2. I can't do much about it.

Problem is, I can't do anything about it.  My printer/distributor is on their game getting everything out as they are supposed to.  The problem lies with Amazon, whatever their problem is.

3. But I might be able to help a little.

If you are in my area and we can meet, my proposal is that you can

a. Cancel your Amazon order (ensure you get your proper refund) and buy directly from me.
b. Cancel your Amazon order and go through another retailer like Barnes & Noble.
c. Continue with your Amazon order.  I will give you a book to read now.  When your book arrives, you hand that book over to me.  Since you have already paid through Amazon, everything is solid there.

I am sorry that this has happened.  Some may have more luck with Barnes & Noble, and you shouldn't have any problem with e-reader versions.  If something else happens or there is a break, I will let you all know.
