Re: The publication date of your book

Thank you, Michelle. I understand perfectly now. CS should have a printing/shipping arm in Australia that can compete with local printers ... (though it would be a long shot).  I am going to check whether there are printers cheaper and faster locally here in the States. As long as I use my own ISBN, there wouldn't be a problem printing locally, would it?

LOL, lots of people here would love that in most countries I think. We don't even have our own Amazon, although apparently they're seeking out suitable warehouse space, so this might be a possibility in the near future.

None at all. You own the ISBN, you can print wherever you like. Distribution through multiple channels can create some confusion when using the same ISBN, but that's a separate issue to ARCs.

Re: The publication date of your book

Hello,

how does it actually work with publication date and printed copies?

i've accepted my proof (without order any copy) on june, 20th. So my publication date is set as june, 20th. I than edit something, order a proof, and i got in the final page of the book "printed in the US in 23th, August, 2012".

So my question is:

Which date will be listed on the final page of the book when i will approve my printed proof?

Will the actual date of printing always be printed ?

Is there any way to print the publication date?
Thanks a lot for any help

Re: The publication date of your book

The date printed will always list on the extra leaf that CS adds. Your publication date will remain the same in the ISBN record adn on sites that display it such as Amazon. If you want the publication date to print in the book you need to add it yourself, usually on the copyright page.
