My book may well be out in Australia/NZ even before it comes out in North America. NewSouth Books, the book's Australia/NZ distributor, plans to print books in Sydney instead of waiting for them to make the long flight. This saves carbon emissions while getting the books out faster, probably by mid-December at the latest. They'll also be offering a 20% discount for Aus/NZ customers who order off their site. You can pre-order now. (It encourages them to print more!)
Here's New South's flyer promoting the book, which you're welcome to print, share with friends, and leave modestly lying about: Download Human Transit flyer(2).
Back to usual programming soon! (Finger is better, thanks.)
D’oh. Wish I hadn’t pre-ordered it from Book Depository now!
Same boat – might have to order a local copy, then convince the boss to pay for the overseas version for a copy to live in the office.
Thanks for the tip. Placed my order! 🙂
