    Finally cracked this one open a few days ago and it's classic Little. Diggin' the hell out of it so far . . . .

    Well, I certainly feel something! Honored is a strange way to describe that feeling though. But if tormenting me brings joy to Little's fans sooner, then I am all for it! We could use a contagion of joy right about now.

    Traditionally speaking, trade editions have to be in the warehouse at least a month before the pub date because of the time it takes to get them out to distributors and bookstores to be ready for the pub date. We went ahead and started getting ready to ship preorders early because of the audiobook situation. And for Jeff.
    Well, on behalf of Jeff and everyone else, thank you!

    Either way, it's a good time for Jeff to get an order in!

    Yes, it’s extremely odd, and we’ve emailed Bentley’s agent about why it happened...

    So this got pointed out on the Bentley Little Facebook group (come and join, Jeff), but apparently the audiobook for The Bank came out this week. I know that the audio rights are completely separate from the print rights, but isn't it odd for the audiobook to come out nearly a month before the printed novel?

    They said the publisher is shipping to distributors early to allow them time to ship by the 4/28 release date. I assume that several distributors are getting theirs early. Would not be surprised to see some for sale early.

    Not sure if this is related but some publishers are moving release dates on things. Stephen Kings If It Bleeds has been moved from 5/5 to 4/28. The Bank may have been moved up but not everyone was in a position to react to the change. Just guessing.

    Thankfully, with the exception of the Bentley Little limited editions, we're only announcing the Graveyard Editions as we send them to the printer. This saves the wait for people, which is really the problem with a backlog.
    Great way to approach it IMO.

    Nice to hear that these will be getting the limited edition treatment. I know the battle with printers and production has been challenging, but I'm looking forward to you guys getting caught up and seeing this come out on a regular basis. The Graveyard Editions are great!
