Changes to availability of Manifold Press books

Two small snippets of news to bring you about this. The first - and least - is that we're going to decrease the lapse-time between publication and availability via our partner sites. In the first instance this will come down to two months, so that our 1 February books will be available on Rainbow and AllRomance from 1 April this year, but in due course we intend to reduce it to one month. Whether or not we will ever go so far as to have simultaneous publication, however, is something we have yet to decide.

More importantly, we've started the process to make our books available through Amazon. This won't happen overnight, of course; we expect it to be gradual and probably to take about six months altogether. Again, as with our reseller partners, we do not expect to be making new books available via Amazon immediately, but we're working towards a lapse-time of only one month. We know we've probably been over-cautious about this, and that some readers have found it infuriating, but it's been very important to us to make sure we knew what we were doing before we took this major step; we're not the type who rush into things, on the whole, and we can't afford to make expensive mistakes.

In any event, we're sure you'll agree that these are both changes for the better!
