How soon after publication will pre-ordered titles be shipped?

Pre-ordered titles are shipped as soon as they become available. Most pre-ordered copies are signed by the author, so this takes some extra time to get the books to the author to sign, and then ship to you. The date your shipment will arrive depends on which shipping method you requested: media rate, first class/priority, or overnight.
