Pre-order question
« on: January 19, 2020, 08:49:51 PM »
I searched for this an couldn't find anything about it.

I've got my next Cold Shivers Nightmare up for pre-order and I set a long date on it (August 1st). I'm already getting orders so that's good. The question I have is this, can I move the release date closer without screwing up my pre-orders? My intention was to leave myself plenty of time to get the book edited and get a cover for it, but was always planning to release earlier than the current posted date. I'd like to publish by the end of February or mid-March at the latest.

Can I release earlier without any negative repercussions?
I will not forget one line of this, not one day. I will always remember when the Doctor was me.

Yes you can.

I released my last one trying this about 2 weeks earlier. Other than the minimum 3 days ahead, it worked fine.

My current one is for end of Feb, but intend it to be first week instead if at all possible.
Genres: Space Opera/Fantasy/Cyberpunk, with elements of LitRPG and GameLit, with a touch of the Supernatural. Also Spiritual and Games.

What Timothy said.

I've done this with the last few book - put a longer pre-order up, then released the book when it's ready. No complaints, and no issues at all so far. Everyone gets the book early.

I also tell my (very small) newsletter list what I'm doing.

Best of luck with the release.

Genre: Fantasy
