Just saw this today (it wasn't there a week ago):

http://www.amazon.com/Brewing-Better-Beer-Advanced-Homeowners/dp/0937381985/

I'm sure AHA's store will carry it, but seeing it as an Amazon pre-order is always a good sign!

It's also in WorldCat: http://www.worldcat.org/oclc/704120279 (this makes it easy for librarians to catalog the book when they buy it)

Congrats!

Thanks kgs. This is one I might add to my stable of brewing books.

I hope there's a Kindle version.  I've been slowly converting my beer book library over to a more mobile and electronic format.  I like the convenience of being able to carry around some terrific brewing resources with me wherever I go.

If you're saying what I think you're saying, that's an Amazon problem.  If you click the ad at the top of this page you can see a picture of the book.

I sent an email to Amazon, hopefully they'll get it fixed quickly.

I know someone who works at Amazon.  Maybe he's punking me.  I did double-check the artwork, which is correct.  Maybe I can double my sales if I cross-list it in the home improvement section.   ::)  I'm wondering if someone submitted it on an iphone, and we're just seeing autocorrect gone wild.

I will be signing copies at the NHC.  I hope to have a book tour of sorts in the midwest and other areas where I might be traveling, if it coincides with a competition or other beer event.  I'll talk to Justin and see if he wants to do something through the BN.

I finished the book late last summer, and have been anxiously waiting for it to come out.  It takes a lot longer than you'd think.  Thanks to everyone for the good wishes.

Randy Mosher wrote some nice quotes for me; he reviewed the book after we were in Australia last fall.  Mufasa wrote a killer foreword for it.  They're going to excerpt part of it in an upcoming Zymurgy and I'll be giving a talk on part of the material at the NHC.
