Just an FYI for anyone looking for my books. Right now Amazon seems to be showing a delay of five days to print and ship books that they distribute on my behalf. But most of my books also have another version distributed via IngramSpark that will ship sooner. The IngramSpark listing is rarely the primary listing, so you have to go looking for it.
Here’s how. This is the main page for Excel for Beginners. You can see on the right where it says it will normally ship within five days:
Right above where all the prices are listed for the different formats it says “See all formats and editions.”
Click on that and you get another screen. There’s a little > next to the paperback listing. Click on that and it will become a downward pointing arrow instead and you’ll see two listings for the paperback.
The May 2019 version is the version that’s coming from IngramSpark. If you click on “Paperback, May 9, 2019” you will be taken to that version’s listing.
And voila, there are six left in stock and you can get a copy in your hands within as little as two days.
It will also have text on the spine which the Amazon version doesn’t.
Amazon does allow resellers to do weird things on their site so I always approach book listings there with a certain amount of caution. But for any listing of my book that’s coming from IngramSpark you can scroll down to product details and if it’s mine you should see a publisher name of M.L. Humphrey and an ISBN-13 that starts with 978-1950902 and then three numbers that are specific to that particular book, in this case 002.
And, of course, you can also order the books from other fine retailers that carry print books like Barnes & Noble.
