In November of 2009, I sent out a press release to announce a new book.

Goofs like this seldom happened back in the 20th century, when news reporting was done by human beings, not by robots.

A lot has happened in publishing since 2009. The 2009 book mentioned in the release is now officially obsolete, replaced by this one:
It should be on sale in about a week. You can order here. It's bigger and better than the 2009 book, but the price is the same.
