Why should you pre-order HOW TO MAKE A FRENCH FAMILY?
Pre-orders are very important for an author like me. Brian McClellan explained it best; here are the key points as illustrated in his article:
"Why are pre-orders important? The most obvious reason would be bestseller lists. Pre-orders count toward first week sales that often determine whether a book winds up on a bestselling list, a possibility that can be huge for any author.
A large number of pre-orders can cause a vendor (Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Books-a-Million) to go back to the publisher and ask for another order of books.
It's a snowball effect. The book hasn't hit shelves yet and it's already gotten both booksellers and publishers excited for it. All of these facets spin together to make pre-orders a huge part of the business. They're good for bookstores, publishers, and most especially for the authors whose living depends on their books selling well.
If you have an author whose book you're planning on buying and you can afford to put the money down ahead of time, please pre-order their book."
