Tim Karas asked:

How come Amazon has not allowed the readers to purchase this book, as it has passed the published date? Also why don't they allow one to pre-order this book? Is it because the writer is an independent author?

John Its not released yet. His website April 30th has a tentative release date in June, 2015. http://richardellisprestonjr.com/?p=1758
Tim Karas According to another superb author, Trevor Cooley, most writers do not
like to take a pre-order on their upcoming book, because it locks the
writer to a certain release date. Trevor says he often wants to get his
books out to the readers as soon as possible and not hold off until the
scheduled release date. It seems that Richard shouldn't have given out
a release date in case he wanted to make changes before the book actually got published.
