I wanted to let you all know that due to my mistake, ‘Dr. Strange Beard’ went live today with a placeholder file 

The Penny Reid team didn’t double the check the release date when we changed it last month from the 10th to the 30th. This is 100% OUR fault, it is not Nook’s fault! I have let NOOK know about the issue and hope they can help rectify it so we can put Dr. Strange Beard back up for pre-order ASAP.

I’m really sorry about this mistake, there has been a lot going on but that’s no excuse. If you pre-ordered on Nook you should return the book and request a refund. I wanted to apologize again to all my Nook readers for the inconvenience.
