    I cannot wait! My inbox gave me a message from Amazon today...

    Dan Haga "Urban Atrophy"
    Estimated arrival date: April 28 2011 - May 09 2011

    I have no idea what the delay is for. Maybe they are getting more interest in the book than originally expected.

    Barnes & Noble has been showing April 28 too.

    I contacted the publisher to see whats up and got this:

    "Unfortunately it's all based on the arrival of the book in "their" distribution center. If they don't get the book when they are expected they will move the date or say unavailable or cancel orders until their stock is received. The unfortunate part is we can't change anything they do and how they do it...we just have to wait till they work it all out. I always tell authors to please direct people to our site for accuracy."

    Ok here is an update on book availability.

    The problem with Amazon is that they are sold out. They were sold out before they even got their first shipment of books to distribute. It sucks but I guess its not the worst problem to have... I have no idea when they will be getting more.

    Barnes & Noble and Borders are doing pre-orders still and will start shipping on the 28th.

    The publisher has them in stock and is shipping now.

    Hey being sold out before they got their first shipment is a damn good thing to say! Congrats on the success thus far.

    That is not Amazon's prices. They simply link to outside sources when they are out of stock.
