The administrator in charge of the MA program, who sends out tons of info to the participants made an astounding comment. "I keep forgetting you are writers, not readers." :) It seems people don't really read the info and then ask questions which were already answered.
I admit, I do tend to be a writer, not a reader of info. I know that my publisher has sent out the information on when paper copies of the book come out versus e-books, but I still have yet to dig through the information available and figure it out. (I put the information aside with the thought, I've got months before I need this...LOL) A friend who writes a different kind of book for this publisher said she thought it was six months after the e-book... I thought it was six weeks at first then over the last year changed to releases at the same time... but it is a vague memory. So, I really need to do more research. So, that I can have the answer for you... LOL
Each publisher is different, making the journey interesting indeed. Now, off to be a reader...not just a writer. Cheers!
