release date confusion

Andrea writes that she checked and Barnes and Noble, the release date on Tied to the Tracks now reads Tuesday, June 13.

Which is odd, because when I just checked Amazon, it still said June 8. So, confusion reigns, as usual. Just be aware: it is coming out. I promise. And if your local bookstore tells you no, it’s not: you have my permission to smite that person about the head with a wet noodle. Or you could just correct them. Choose one of the following:

A) Pardon me, but you are very much mistaken. This novel was indeed published by Putnum Penguin, and if you cannot be bothered to look into your computer machine with the proper degree of attention to detail, I shall take my trade elsewhere. Good day.

B) I don’t want to talk to you no more, you empty headed animal food trough wiper. I fart in your general direction. Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries. I shall go away before I taunt you again.

C) Most likely you aren’t paid very well and you work long hours and people pick on you. I expect life hasn’t been pleasant since the newest Coulter came out, what’s it called? Heartless? Oh yeah, Godless. So I understand, things slip by you. But this book does exist, and in fact, it might be just the thing for you to read too. Cheer you up a little. Go ahead, indulge.

Andrea also mentions that her book group is going to read Into the Wilderness which of course is lovely, and many thanks. Books groups are wondrous things. People talking about books. What could be better?
