You’d think by this point I’d understand a bit more about pub dates, but I don’t. (That’s publishing dates, as in when a book comes out…not dates to local bars. That, I understand. Or understood before I got Old and Married.)

I have my first signing this coming Sunday, at Quail Ridge Books in Raleigh. The official pub date for This Lullaby is May 27th (that’s according the my publisher) while the Barnes and Noble site says June 1. Meanwhile Amazon says it will be published in May 2002. And how vague is that?

I just hope they have books by Sunday. (Fingers crossed! Fingers crossed!) I’ll just chalk this up to the enduring mystery of the publishing industry. To be honest, I think they don’t want you to understand. No, oh, no. Much better to leave you guessing…
