On 11/08/11, Simon and Schuster opened up their website at 9:00 am EST to take orders (U.S. orders only) for the signed limited edition of 11/22/63. Unfortunately, heavy traffic made it nearly impossible to get an order placed. After nearly three hours of receiving complaints from frustrated customers, S&S shut down the site, claiming they would reopen it on 11/10/11, and that any orders that had actually gone through would be honored. However, the next day, S&S posted that instead of taking orders for the book on 11/10/11, they would be taking lottery submissions for the chance to buy the book. The lottery would be open for 30 hours, and the winners would be notified by 11/15/11. Simon and Schuster's inability to manage their website properly, coupled with a last minute process change, became a great source of frustration for collectors. Many questioned the professionalism of the publisher, recalling the 2004 fiasco involving The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon limited edition.
