After much deliberation, we decided to take down our store. It helped facilitate pre-sales, but very few sales were being made once our titles made their way to amazon and other retailers. We decided to remove the cost of the store and focus on selling through our partners.
Moreover, the pre-sale program caused as many logistical problems as it solved. From now on, CoffeeTablePress.com will focus on our services to authors and titles will be made available through our retail partners and distributors. Any authors that want to run similar programs on their own in the future are welcome to do so, but we will remove ourselves from all liability in any such case.
Many of you are probably wondering what this means for Next Generation Kings by Clough and Winston. It will be available on Amazon and through local book stores in the coming weeks, and customers who pre-ordered should finally start receiving them very soon. But, the pre-order program has been closed.
