- By pre-ordering books at your local bookstore, you don't have to try and remember when it comes out. The book will be on hold for you when it comes out and they will notify you as soon as it's available.
- You are guaranteed a copy. When my debut novel, Highland Blessings, first released, some stores only ordered one or two copies and they sold out within the first few weeks. This even occurred on Amazon.com and Amazon Canada and they typically have several copies at their distribution center. This caused several people to wait and people were driving all over my hometown looking for copies.
- Often, you get a DISCOUNT when you pre-order a book. Saving money is always a plus
- If you pre-order on Amazon and the price drops on sale by the release date, Amazon will only charge you for the sale price, not the price it was when you actually placed your pre-order. This is true for both print and Kindle e-books.
Do you ever pre-order books? Why or why not?
