Theories of Falling: New Release Date

Theories of Falling by Sandra Beasley has a new release date due to mistakes at the printer. In order to reprint the book without errors, we are pushing back the release date to April 15th. Everyone who has placed a preorder with New Issues will receive their copy as soon as we get the boxes from the printer. Those who have requested a review copy will also receive their book at that time.

Thank you for all the inquiries into Theories of Falling. We are also very excited about Sandra's new book and can't wait to share with you the completed product.
