Order Now, Get Books Later!

Pre-orders for books are like opening weekends for movies. 

They show publishers how excited you are, drum up early support so publishers know how many books to print, how many to ship, where to ship them. They're an early indicator of how successful a book might be for a publisher, which tells them that yes, they should get the author under contract for a sequel or shop rights around for a movie adaptation or order more print runs of the author's backlist. They also tell us these same things, and help us know what books to order more of so that we're not sold out on the release date and you have to wait three days for our next shipment to come in. They give us support and tell the publishers that you are willing to support us and this book in our store. Pre-orders are one of the most important metrics of publishing, and we're making pre-ordering easier for you! 

So here's our monthly list of Possible Pre-orders. These are the books that we as a store are most excited about and would love to get to you as quickly as possible. These are books that the publishers are excited about, that they've been touting to us and to you through early reviews and marketing. These are just a select few of the myriad of books coming out in next month, so don't think that these are the only ones available for pre-order. Anything you're excited for and you think should be on this list? Let us know. Pre-order it. And we'll get it to you on its release day.

Availability: Coming Soon - Available for Pre-Order Now
Published: St. Martin's Press - September 3rd, 2019

Without spoilers, here are some of the things you can expect from this book: Old friends from the previous books putting in appearances. New friends, because why not make a few new friends along the way. Pretty much every enemy you can think of also putting in an appearance. Pirates. You heard that right: pirates. Mythology and divinity revealed. True love. Epic battles. Derring do. Snarky footnotes. Sexy times. Cool assassin shit. Creepy blood magic. Watching characters you probably love die (if you think this is a spoiler you haven't read the first two books). Watching characters you probably hate also die (see previous comment). Leveling Up. Worldbuilding (yes, even in the last book). Some meta as hell stuff that made me smile. Plenty of action as well as brooding. And, arguably the most important part, closing the chapter on Mia's story.

Published: Tor.com - September 10th, 2019

Barbed humor, fascinating necromantic theory, and an amazing blend of gothic fantasy and science fiction. AND REAL WARMTH? I CRIED? Huge cast but every single one of them absolutely memorable.
--Allison

If you've been looking for a book filled with shambling skeletons, sword fights, weird magic, space travel, snark, frienemy fireworks, and plenty of murder, this book is sure to charm you. This one is worth the wait, readers. Muir has crafted a true masterpiece.
--Tara

This book is so far beyond what anyone can say about it. "Lesbian necromancers solving puzzles in space" is accurate, but doesn't even begin to describe it. This book is about terrible people being terrible, but it's also about terrible people learning how to be better people and about terrible people being good. It’s about…god, it’s about skeletons? And magic? and swords? And the book is about being a hero, and it’s about the hard parts and the gross parts and the awful parts about being a hero, but it’s about the heroic parts, too.

Availability: Coming Soon - Available for Pre-Order Now
Published: Simon Pulse - September 24th, 2019

 I was held captive by the world that Brittany Morris created..both the real world and the virtual world in this book. 
--Teresa

SLAY digs into some incredibly difficult topics, but does so with poise and care. It's stressful and poignant, full of moments of humor and moments of unbearable sadness. I came out of this book feeling how I felt at the end of Black Panther. That it was decisively amazing, massively important, and not made for me. And that's good. It's really good.
