Why I Don’t Do Pre-Orders on Amazon

I have been asked many times by loyal readers why I don’t do Amazon pre-orders. Honestly, I’d love to, but I can’t. Or rather, I won’t.

The long and short of it is, I will NEVER do pre-orders on Amazon until I know for sure these continuing issues have been fixed. Basically, don’t hold your breath.
