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. Here is why: The system is fatally flawed and Amazon has yet to fix it in the many months the option has been available. It has caused many authors loss of readers, time, money, and their good name.
If you want more details on what’s been going on, read this excellent article by Passive Guy.
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.
