I have some favorite authors that write through MIRA (an imprint of Harlequin). A number of times, I've wishlisted them here and received them before the release date. Where are people getting these so early that they can read them, post them and send them that I receive them before they go on sale at my local stores or Amazon?

Most likely it's from eharlequin.com.  Most of the monthly releases(MIRA as well )are released to their online only site a month early.  Starting on the 1st of June, one could order the July releases.  Haven't done it for awhile, but before I found PBS, I ordered from them alot.

Thanks Jan. I got a book yesterday that looks like it was read at least a half dozen times and I couldn't figure it out since it's not supposed to be released until tomorrow. But that would make sense that eharlequin would sell their own books early.

I just got a Wish List offer for a July book too.  Funny how some new release books you receive look like they've been thru the wringer and others look new.  Guess it's all in how someone cares(or doesn't) for their books.
