asdfg wanted to know why the delay on the pub date for Pajama Jones, so here’s the situation as I understand it.
The publisher has a whole stream of books they are getting ready to release, and some complex formula to decide about timing. Mostly the marketing people have the upper hand in this negotiation. I had thought they would release PJ at the same time the trade paperback edition of Tied to the Tracks comes out, but they decided not to go that route, for reasons unclear to me.
I can’t say this with authority, but my guess is that when TTTT is released in paperback, they’ll be watching closely. If it does really well, they might move up the pub date for PJ.
This is all guess work, but it is based on close observation over many years.
So if you want PJ earlier, tell friends about TTTT in paperback.
Ah, publisher’s profits. Of course. Thank you.
..well thats frustrating! What can ya do, when ya live in a shoe.(s’k my kid’s don’t get it either)
Sigh. The waiting continues :( I am sure the situation is much more frustrating for you Rosina as an author than us, your readers though.
