on May 13th. I replied and got a return email from JavaRanch.
But I haven't heard a thing from the publisher and don't have the book yet.
The email you received should have included this text:
We've received your contact information. Here are the next steps:
within 2-3 weeks - we send your information to the publisher.
possibly sooner if everyone replies right away.
0-3 months - the publisher needs to order and ship your books. The
timeline varies based on the publisher, book availability and where
you live. (For software, it is an e-mail key and should happen right
6 months - statute of limitations . If you don't get the book, we
can follow up within 3-6 months. It might have been lost in the mail
or it the publisher might have forgotten. If others received the
book, it likely got lost in the mail.
We are still within the window of 0-3 months. I followed up with the publisher regardless. If you have any other questions about the book (or still don't hear back in a month), please email email@example.com
And to anyone else reading this, it is easier for us if you email questions about book promo winnings to firstname.lastname@example.org. That's where we track everything so it helps to have queries in the same place.
