Fictionwise has made some new improvements in getting new books out for readers in a timely fashion. I love that. However, listing pre-orders with a release date a month in advance with the new books for the week? WTF? Come on now, just list the books that are being released on Super Tuesday. That’s all I ask. I am not concerned with ebooks for December. It’s all about instant gratification, people.
Of course, to be fair, you can put these ebooks in your “wish list” for later or in your cart for later. However, this process just annoys me. Most of the new ebooks released each week are most of the time books that I can’t read for another week or more. Yes, I am impatient. I like to read the books that I purchased. However, this is a minor complaint and an annoyance about their pre-order schedule. My advice would be: make December preorder titles available in December. See? Simple. Rant over. Anyway here are the titles that I have purchased or placed in my cart for later. Each week it gets to be fewer and fewer:
- Garden of Darkness by Anne Frasier (Dec 4, 2007)
- The Looking Glass Wars by Frank Beddor (YA spin on Alice in Wonderland story, purchased)
- Why Mermaid’s Sing by C.S. Harris (A Sebastian St. Cyr mystery, purchased)
- The Blue Sword by Robin Mckinley (Dec 4, 2007)
