There are lots of options at this point, even though Amazon.com won’t ship books until the official publication date.
This weekend, while in the Press 53 office, I signed all the copies that were pre-ordered, and those were shipped out this morning. Your copy should be arriving soon! (I also signed a lot of other copies, so you can still order a signed copy from the Press.)
Several bookstores in the area where I live have copies for sale, including The Sacred Circle, BookWorks, and Over The Moon. Other area stores will be getting copies soon.
A friend of mine in New Hampshire ordered a copy through his local independent store and he’s received it already. You could try that, too–support me and your Indie Store at the same time!
Or you could come to my book launch party this Wednesday night at the Darjeeling Cafe. Copies will be available for purchase!
Or, you could go to the book’s page on this website and order a signed/personalized copy directly from me: What the Zhang Boys Know. (My first book also has a page and you can also order a copy of that book from me: In an Uncharted Country.)
Or, if you have great patience, you could wait until October 1 and order from Amazon.com or Barnes & Noble. I’ll remind you.
