I don't know if I ever mentioned why I discuss book treasures in my closet the month before release, rather than in the current month, knowing I'll still have books coming in for review. It's a librarian issue. I've always tried to notify my patrons as soon as the books are available in the computer system for placing reserves. I know patrons have favorite authors, and they would like to know about their forthcoming books as soon as possible. So, I discuss book releases a month before actual release as an aid to library patrons.
I have a dozen books with October release dates in my closet right now, although I'm sure there will be more coming. Mark these down, if you see a favorite.
