Wow, so I had a Christmas miracle. I drove out there this morning, figuring I'd just get a cup of coffee before people started coming over. This bookstore never has anything on time. And it had a copy! I'm thinking its possibly because the author is also a Floridian, and booksamillion tends to showcase local authors. Thanks for the heads up about the contest!
You can usually order stuff online, but unfortunately, local stores are almost impossible to find here. The only self run book shops tend to be used stores, as all the others are driven out by Barnes and Noble and Books-a-million. I do occasionally drive up to Tampa or Orlando though to make large purchases of backlogged comics and books I want in hard copy.
