That's some schedule. Now if you can just get it again next year when the book's out.

I expect I won't. The Bubonicon folks are always really great to us locals, but who knows what will happen with Worldcon next year...

When do the online retailers start taking pre-orders? Maybe there's some sort of a form you could throw up on your site in the 'words' section to let people put in their email address so you can notify them when it's available. You should ask your web designer about that.
