Regarding pre-orders, for those who asked: They've become increasingly important in the current publishing environment, as they help to build momentum both in-house and with retailers. They also count toward that crucial first week of sales, which affects store placement, print run, media coverage, etc., and helps bookstore owners with their stock planning.

Whether on-line or via a physical bookstore, preorders really do make a difference. And, of course, they make Bela happy ... .
