Signal Boost: Seanan Is Having A Time

Our dear friend seanan_mcguire is having a small nightmare right now.

Short form, some book sellers, including Amazon and B&N, have released her book early. It's scheduled for March 6, and the e-book versions will not be available till then... but the print books can be bought now, and besides the fact that it'll likely screw up the all-important first week sales, people are blaming Seanan for this mess and calling her the nastiest names. jimhines and janetmiles say everything that needs to be said on their most recent LJ entries.

Except this, which has to be reemphasized: Don't buy Seanan McGuire's Discount Armageddon until the release date of March 6.

And, if you get the chance, go to that thread at the top and give the dear girl a little love and support. She needs it, and FSM knows she deserves it.

For what it's worth, I just came across this on the Amazon page for the physical book:
"While this item is available from other marketplace sellers on this page, it is not currently offered by Amazon.com because customers have told us there may be something wrong with our inventory of the item, the way we are shipping it, or the way it's described here. (Thanks for the tip!)

We're working to fix the problem as quickly as possible."
