Only a few more days until TEMPTED releases! I know some of you have been waiting forever for this book so I thought I’d update you on the “official” release date because, if you’re like me, you might be a little confused.
I just double-checked with my publisher and the “Street Date” for TEMPTED is Tuesday, September 6th. This means you can walk into any bookstore on that date and TEMPTED should be on the shelf. (I say “should be” because this is often dependent on how fast the actual store unpacks the boxes.) Most publishers release books on Tuesdays (generally the last Tuesday of a month or the first Tuesday of a month), and numbers for bestseller lists like USA Today and New York Times are calculated for the week starting on that day.
Some of you have noticed though that TEMPTED is listed at online retailers as releasing on September 1st (this coming Thursday). Technically retailers aren’t supposed to release before the Street Date (Sept 6) but every retailer does things their own way. So if you’re purchasing at an online retailer (or pre-purchased) the book will be available on the date that particular retailer lists on their site.
I hope that helps clear up confusion. TEMPTED is getting great reviews and reader reaction so far and I can’t wait to hear what you all think. I really hope you enjoy Demetrius & Isadora’s story!
Stay tuned for my release day party info…coming soon!
