One of my favorite Christian writers have a book to be released in March of 2012.  I found out by going to her site but there is no isbn yet.  It's not listed as a forthcoming book on Amazon yet.  Everytime I put a wish for a new book that is going to be released there are always at least a dozen people or more who have beat me to the punch.  I'd like to be the first one in the queue.  How do I get my request in when it's not on the site here or on Amazon?

Ok, I found the ISBN on Zondervan site and I input it here but PBS still does not bring it up.  I want to be No. 1!

Kay, It's there now. Go wish for it!

PBS gets its database from Amazon and other sources.  When put in an ISBN that it doesn't recognize, it kinda triggers the system to go looking for it. If you try again a little while after that (sometime minutes, sometimes hours, depending on the update timing) it usually shows up.
