Usually, books arrive from the printer ahead of the formal “publishing date” which is set well in advance. For example, our newest title, Outgrowing Addiction, has a formal pub date of May 15, but copies are available from us a month ahead of that date. They are are being shipped to bookstores by our trade distributor, IPG/Midpoint, and by book wholesalers such as Ingram and Baker & Taylor. If your favorite bookstore doesn’t yet have it in stock, let them know that it is available, and they don’t have to wait until May 15. We love bookstores, and always urge people to buy our books from them whenever they can. But if a book we publish is not available in your favorite store, for whatever reason, you can always order it directly from us.
