Henry Holt and Co., the publisher behind Michael Wolff’s “Fire and Fury,” has moved up the publication date of the controversial book, according to a tweet by the author.


"Due to unprecedented demand, we are moving the on-sale date for all formats of 'Fire and Fury,' by Michael Wolff, to Friday, January 5, at 9 a.m. ET, from the current on-sale date of Tuesday, January 9," a Henry Holt spokeswoman told CNN Thursday afternoon.

The book was originally slated to be released on January 9. The move comes after Donald Trump’s lawyer Charles Harder on Thursday sent a cease and desist letter to Henry Holt and Co., insisting publication of the book would be "defamation by libel.”

Even before its release, “Fire and Fury” has made headlines for revealing provocative and damning conversations about Trump, his family and his administration.
