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.

Jasmine Guillory is becoming my favorite contemporary romance author and this book did not disappoint! I fell in love with Theo & Maddie when I first met them in "The Wedding Date" and I was so happy to finally see their story play out! --Teresa

Horrifying in all the best and worst ways. A somehow epically sprawling novella. I love to scream "MORE! MORE! MORE!" upon finishing a piece of short fiction. Would read a thousand stories set in Mkalis AND Ahri. --Allison

Availability: Coming Soon - Available for Pre-Order Now
Published: Gallery / Saga Press - July 16th, 2019

A 200-page prose poem, an epistolary masterpiece, a masterclass in allusion, a deep dive into character, a perfect manipulation of form and syntax and tone, a bending of the genre to create something that is intrinsically SFF and yet absolutely, gorgeously unique. It's a Shakespearean sonnet, a John Keats love-letter, a Seamus Heaney translation. It's ancient and new, twisted and twined, harsh and jagged and soft all at once, romantic and Romantic. It's art. --Megan

An atmospheric, slightly unsettling, misty, summer afternoon, but bound in a book. It's frenetic and achy, fierce and full of heart, sharp and delicate. It's fae, but done correctly--all sharp edged smiles and sleepy questions and thorny claws. It's a slow fall from the real world into something new, dark and sepia-toned and gorgeous. Itfeels and it hurts and it holds you gently until you heal. --Megan
