I voted no, but it wasn't a strongly held opinion.

I prefer to know when something is available, not that it may be coming soon. This is more of a cottage industry than big business, and deadlines come and go. The casting machine breaks, a hurricane hits town, etc. Delays are expected. So rather than be excited about something too early, only to be disappointed, I prefer to be told when something is really available.

That said, if someone has product in hand and the news is that the stuff is available in a few weeks at a con, and then mail order after that, it's close enough to warrant a news release.

But a month or more ahead of time? To soon to advertise if you ask me.
