The system for getting the book about the Panasonic Lumix LX5 camera back in production seems to be working well. The revised proof of the book’s text was just approved two days ago, on Friday, and this morning the book’s listing on Amazon.com shows that the book ships within 1 to 3 weeks. That doesn’t sound so great, but it’s a lot better than “Temporarily Unavailable,” which is what the listing said for the past week or more. Now the availability should improve gradually over the next several days; fairly soon it should say “In Stock” and eventually, I hope, Amazon.com will make the book available for overnight shipping.
Things don’t look so good yet at Amazon.co.uk, the United Kingdom site, where the book is still listed as “Unavailable,” with no one selling it. I will list some copies for sale myself as soon as I receive them from the printer, but that won’t be until later in the coming week. Eventually, the print-on-demand system will get the books automatically available in the UK, but it seems to take quite a long time for that to happen, possibly a few more weeks. I’ll be monitoring the situation there, because there are usually a good number of people in the UK who are interested in photography books, and I will try to make the book available there as much as I possibly can.
