Reader note – this book has now been published! Full details, including links to order, can be found here.
Hi all, this is the briefest of posts to keep you up to speed on the publication dates of my upcoming book, The Columbo Companion (if you missed the announcement, there’s more info here).
For reasons known only to them, Amazon have informed the publisher that they will not take pre-orders on the book, instead only accepting orders when they can sell and ship at the same time. Rest assured, this won’t affect readers’ ability to get hold of a copy of the book, it just means having to wait until the official launch to place your order.
The likeliest date for this is now set to be Tuesday 20 September. In some Amazon jurisdictions, it could be available on the Monday 19 or even Sunday 18 September. I will keep you all in the loop via blog and social media announcements. If you’re active in social circles, you can follow my updates on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. Sorry to move the goalposts, but what can you do when Jeff Bezos and co. are calling the shots?
That’s all for today, folks, although there ought to be some sweet, fresh content for the blog posted tomorrow on subjects entirely unrelated to the book. Keep ’em peeled and enjoy your weekends!
I messaged my local bookstore (buy local, y’all) friend immediately and she said their distributor doesn’t even carry it yet, but she’ll keep an eye on it. Can’t wait to get it! 🙂
No interest to read a book – but should include why The Last Salute of the Commodore was such a stupidity, obnoxious episode – worse in any series of any detective story as was actually like pain to watch that show
I should have never told my mom about this announcement, since she ask everyday. She was one of the first to get the Columbo portrait from Paramount ….a reasonable person would think you could preorder and be done.
I’ll get it because I tend to agree with your reviews, with only a few minor exceptions. I’ve enjoyed reading the Columbophile casebook.
