Officially, “Step It Up and Go” won’t be published until Oct. 19, which is more than a month away. But it should start turning up in bookstores well before that, within a few weeks. The book business is weird that way, with “publication date” specifying the date by which it should be in every store where it’s going to wind up.
Anyway, it’s already listed on that South American river that controls everything, of course, with “sales rankings” for various categories including “Ethnomusicology” — which is a new one for me. I have no idea how they determined the order here or if it means anything; probably not, given that my book’s overall sales ranking is #237,017. But it’s always nice to see one’s book at #1, no matter how obscure the category.
