If you want to preorder a copy of Robert Galbraith aka J.K. Rowling‘s new novel The Silkworm (Cormoran Strike Series #2), you can’t do so on Amazon. The book, which comes out on June 19th, is currently listed as unavailable on Amazon. Barnes & Noble, among other book retailers, has the book available for presale.
Earlier this month, Amazon was slow to ship Hachette titles. Now things are escalating.
“We are doing everything in our power to find a solution to this difficult situation, one that best serves our authors and their work, and that preserves our ability to survive and thrive as a strong and author-centric publishing company,” explained Hachette in a statement.
