Is this a good way to do an Amazon pre-sale?

My book is complete but I don't want it released to the public until the middle of January (I'm tying-it into a media appearance). The person who formated it tells me that my e-book can be made availalble for pre-sale but my paperbook cannot. Also, apparently for me to get author copies,  the book must be up on Amazon.  Since I want author copies now for advanced release to the media & family, my book is currently listed (I'm just not telling anyone it's there and since I'm a first time author, no one will be trying to find me or the book).    My questions:

 

1.  Is this the best way to have my book available in three months?

 

2.  (Important) Does it negatively effect any Amazon ranking if my book sales are literally zero until a certain date, then they suddenly surge?

 

Many Thanks!
