I know that all the distributors got their books, in the numbers they ordered. I also know I have no restock order from them on these products. I finally know they don't stock our products, but prefer to order the amounts they got in preorder.
We'd like to be able to give you a better answer, but sadly, the distribution system in the US doesn't give us any control on what the distributors want to order. I have heard many times of one or two of them who voluntarily order lesser quantities than they need on our products, because they don't want to spend too much money at the same time. Then, they split the quantities they have between the customers, and blame it all on us. Sadly, we cannot do anything against that.
Distribution has some choice words for Rackham, but lets say they feel Rackham is being less than truthful.
