For clarity, a small review of terms:

Delivery date means the date on which a particular manuscript is due to arrive on the editor’s desk.

Publication date is the date on which a book is scheduled to be published.

These two things are not the same.  Publishers (wisely) tend not to set publication dates in stone until the manuscript has been delivered.  A good rule of thumb is to figure that a particular title will be published nine months to a year after delivery.

 

One thought on “Deadlines, we have deadlines”

  1. So excited to see “Trade Secrets” next in the queue to be published, hopefully sooner rather than later 🙂 “Balance of Trade” is one of the few physical books I brought with me for my 10 months of field research in Mongolia…the story of Jethri’s determination and willingness to learn inspires me when I’m feeling culture-fatigued, and I look forward to reading more of his adventures.
