Pre-order

Is it possible to make a book available for pre-order on Kindle, Nook, and/or Smashwords? If so, how would I do this?

Apple just made that possible. Not sure about the others.

I dislike preorders. You never know if you'll end up unable to fill them, like at my old job when we were stuck with a whole folder of preorders for an Invader Zim figure set that we ended up not carrying.

I am the owner of a business which offers the service of formatting eBooks, and I client of mine asked about this. I'm not an author.

I do not know of a direct way, but you could list it for sale on Smashwords and only put like ch1 up. Then if they buy it, you can later put a new file in Smashwords to replace the one they bought with a new (complete) version and Smashwords will make it available to them.

Just make it REALLY REALLY clear and obnoxiously obvious what you are doing.

Okay, I'll suggest that to her. Thank you.
