Book Release Update - Don't Panic. :)

Tuesday, September 8, 2009

Some of you who have pre-ordered Cake Wrecks are getting e-mails stating that it may not ship for several more weeks, or even as late as early October. Naturally, if you're coming to the book tour you want your copy before that! So we looked into it, and fortunately Andrews McMeel tells us that the book left their warehouses today. Accounting for travel and stocking time, then, it should be on shelves or in the mail to you by next week, just in time for the book tour kick-off. So there shouldn't be any need to cancel your online order - although you may want to call your bookstore for an update if you haven't received your copy by late next week.

Also, if you haven't placed a pre-order, rest assured that each store will have plenty of copies on hand for you to purchase there.

Thanks to those of you who let us know about this, and John and I will see some of you in a few weeks!

Wish I could make it to the tour.

Make sure you have extra fun for those of us that can't make it!

I read the article on The Daily Beast. My boyfriend is a baker...I'm sure he could concoct a kitty litter cake!

Looking forward to the tour!

Anne said...

Don't Panic? Well, there's an idea. Any Douglas Adams-themed cakes out there?

i just ordered your book - i can't wait, Jen. i wish Minneapolis/St Paul was on your tour schedule, as i'd love to meet the woman who brings so many giggles in such tough times. Appreciate what you do! Best wishes with the book!

I still say, "Boo to the book tour if you even come to Southern California!"

So there.

Sorry Valerya,

Not our choice, believe me.

Jen and John - see if your agent will book you in Tampa (east Tampa/Brandon specifically lol) - since you're so close you don't even have to fly! :) Would love to meet you guys but not sure I can make it to WP on the 22nd!

Thanks for the update! Already canceled my online preorder - looked like I'd get it fast from the store.

Cant wait 'til the end of the month!

Thanks for letting us know. I got the email and was a bit concerned. Looking forward to seeing you in Seattle!

Douglas Adams theme please!

Also, so excited to see you in Orlando!

Serena said...

I can't wait to read it! So excited... now if only I could convince my hubby that we have to drive to Chicago. :)

Which stores will be carrying the book, please Say CANADA! home of the original wreck?

MaryAnn said...

Des Moines would really like to see you! Maybe next time?

Laura said...

What about South Carolina. Here in greenwood we have a local book store uptown called MCaslan's and they always have book authors coming by to sign books. Not obscure ppl either! I wish you would come to our lil o town
Id settle if you came to Columbia, the capital of SC

Laura said...

phew! what a relief! i dutifully went into my local barnes & noble on the 4th to buy my copy, when to my dismay i discovered that they didn't have it in yet! so my name got put on one for when they do come in. can't wait to read it!

Melonie said...

I join MN me in stating that a Twin Cities stop would have been great. *sigh*
Maybe next time.

Pam Walter said...

Thanks for the news. I bought 3 on Amazon a month ago. Amazon said October delivery. I have been searching other book sellers with no luck.
If you tour within 2 or 3 maybe even 4 hours of North AL I will come.
Thanks for the laughs.
