Barnes & Noble Bookseller’s Picks for June



So much is going on right now that I didn't get a chance to post then when the news came in during Phoenix Comic Con. But Age of Myth was selected by Barnes and Noble as one of the Top Picks in Fantasy and Science Fiction releasing in June.  But, of course, it wasn't the only one (and I'm honored with the company I'm keeping), so let's take a minute to shed some light on all the wonderful books that Jim Killen has selected:

  1. Glad to see a confirmed release date. AmazonUK still have no delivery date. :0(

  2. I'm pretty sure they have a delivery date...just don't have the stock yet. It's my understanding that books are leaving the warehouse and moving to the various venues as we speak.

    1. Well the last time I looked it still said they would let me know when it would be delivered, but that's good to know they are on their way. Thanks.

    2. AmazonUK have the book in stock now, but as I still had no delivery date even though I ordered back in September I contacted them. They told me to cancel and reorder, which I have. It's coming Tuesday. I hope others don't have this problem.

  3. Of course, it's on the list. I have my copy ordered from Amazon. It better arrive on the release date.

    1. I know it's on the list, (had mine ordered months ago). but mine still doesn't give a delivery date unlike my other pre-orders. In fact last time I looked, (weekend), AmazonUK still gave the release date as the 3rd June. Just pleased to hear they are on their way from the warehouse.
