Well, you could do a pre-order.

But, you can't advertise pre-orders using the AMS system--you still have to do all your promoting yourself, and do it off-Amazon.

And, especially for newcomers to KDP publishing, doing a pre-order is like juggling razor blades--too many wind up cutting themselves over the effort.

You can't unless you set up a pre-order. If you don't know what you're doing, it's not a good idea. You'd be better off juggling Joseph's razor blades -- less chance of hurting yourself.
