    If you have John’s new book on order at Amazon, it may pay for you to see what price they have it ordered it.

    They’ve reduced the price to $16.76. I checked my existing order, and they did NOT reduce my original order price from $19.00 something.

    I cancelled the order, and re-ordered to get the lower price.

    You may want to do the same!

    “Crossing Over” at Amazon

    And, you can go into Your Account page and sign up for a program called Share The Love.

    Here’s the description from amazon.com:

    Each time you place an order for books, music, DVDs, or videos with us, we’ll offer you the chance to e-mail your friends and give them an additional 10% off the items you bought. (You select which items, of course.)

    If any of those people purchases one of those items within a week, you’ll receive a credit to use the next time you shop with us! Your credit will equal the dollar amount of your friend’s 10% discount.

    Let’s say you bought a CD for $15 and decided to Share the Love with a friend on that purchase. Your friend would be able to buy the same CD for $13.50. You would receive a credit for $1.50 (the difference) to use any time in the next 30 days. You are eligible to receive one credit per item shared.

    So place those pre-orders and send a friend a 10% discount to purchase “Crossing Over!” :thumbsup:

    Thanks Pam! I just went to Amazon and changed my order too! Am I the only one who hasn’t had a confirmation of the book being shipped? I am beginning to worry! :(

    :confused:

    I just went to check the status of my order at Amazon and it said something like Not available yet, not published yet. what’s up with that? Is it some generic message? Cuz we know it IS available (for a select few) and obviously it has been published. are they toying with my emotions?

    I was wondering the same thing. I e-mailed them asking why it hasn’t been shipped if they say it is available and can be shipped within 2 – 3 business days. I haven’t gotten a response yet. If there is no benefit to me to pre-order a book, I will probably just go to the local bookstore next time. Isn’t it already available at bookstores?

    An update on my pre-ordered book.
    Placed my order on 8-01 and just received confirmation on 8-16 of shipment via USPS (3-7 business days). Keeping fingers crossed to receive in time to read on vacation 8-24.

    OK guys, I’m getting upset! I just checked at Amazon and it says it takes 2-3 days to ship and the estimated delivery is 8/22-8/29. I can pick it up at the book store before that!! BAD Amazon!!:mad:

    Don’t feel too bad Kena, you would pay full price (or with a 10 – 15% discount) if you bought it at the bookstore. Like a doofus I just ordered mine from Amazon on Mondayish. So I probably won’t get mine until September! However, I am meeting my friend to celebrate her birthday on Tuesday (oh can I say I haven’t bought a gift yet and her birthday was July 20?) so I may stop into Waldenbooks and take a looksee if they have it. Tuesday is the date it is supposed to be out. If so, I will be a good friend, pay full price, and give her the book and wait for my copy to come from Amazon! :o *shrugs* sometimes I do things half *** backwards! LOL

    Keep the faith Kena . . . it will arrive sooner or later!

    Ann Marie,

    Thank you. I guess I am just a bit too impatient! I just cancelled my previous order the other day and re-ordered it myself. Like Pam said previously, they lowered the price and I didn’t want to pay the higher price that was quoted to me. I am sure they will ship it when it is available to them, it’s just that you think, OK I pre-ordered so I should be one of those that receives it on or before the release date. No such luck. Oh well.

    That is a very thoughtful thing you are going to do for your friend. I hope she enjoys it and will CAV you in return (I am sure she will!). :)

    Keeping the faith…

    Tee hee! Don’t think I didn’t think about it, but unfortunately it doesn’t come out till Tuesday and we are meeting Tuesday evening. I have to work (ugh, gasp, gag) on Tuesday morning. So I will quickly run in and buy it shove it a present bag and off I go! I read fast, but not that fast! LOL However . . . she is in Milwaukee for the Irish Festival right now and they are coming home Monday. Usually she gets sick after a big gig (sore throat etc) and we may not meet till Wednesday . . . hmmm, *hoping that happens* that would give me a whole night to read it! LOL

    On the upside I see Crossing Over is already at #46 on the Amazon Sales rank and that is, of course, all off pre-orders.

    Looks like John is on his way to another bestseller … :thumbsup:
