Warning: self-promoting post follows...

Well, you've seen me blabbing on here endlessly about it - and many of you on BTIII have helped considerably in its foundation.

Perhaps you'll enjoy seeing this, then...

http://www.amazon.com/Rapid-Transit-Buses-Enthusiasts-Reference/dp/158388209X/ref=sr_11_1/104-8654250-2462307?ie=UTF8&qid=1192307227&sr=11-1

Amazon puts the estimated print date around March; I'm waiting to see if that's what Iconografix actually's looking at.

Should have the test print soon - at least I hope so!

I preordered a copy (which qualifies for a 5% discount).
Hopefully, come next St. Patrick's Day or therebout, a copy will be headed my way.
It's nice to say that you actually know the author of a book that you ae reading...

According to Amazon.com, it looks as if we'll have to wait a bit longer for this book: it will ship sometime at the end of May 2008.
I think this should be an excellent book on an important subject!

Have a call into my publisher to see what's up.

I better have at least a few copies before the MBS convention in Denver...

Strange. Amazon.ca is still giving me a shipping estimate date of March 31. Shocked

You lucky Canadians Razz

Amazon says it will ship May 19, and I got an e-mail saying it would arrive between May 27 and June 6. Not good news for the MBS convention.

OK, here's the (somewhat) skinny from my editor...

"Amazon got all our dates wrong, our book trade partner says they are trying to fix it. I think what happened is someone thought to start putting the dates when Amazon will probably actually receive the books (BUT they were supposed to put in pub dates) - the publisher had a talk with them and I don't know when it will be changed (we can't go in there and do it ourselves)..."

What I do know is the books are in the country, and will begin to be shipped/distributed to sellers within the next week or two. I'm supposed to get my copies from Iconografix in the next week, in time to bring at least a few to MBS to autograph and sell (woohoo!). I'll be taking orders once I run out of supply...

Hope anyone who gets a copy isn't too disappointed in it - thanks for all the support!

-Evan

They *just* arrived!

Outside of a few small errors (some not my fault), it looks pretty good!
