For US according to Amazon before taken down after the leak it was November 15th of this year! Other countries vary from November though December.

At SDCC they said it would be out near the release of the game. So if the game gets delayed to next year the book will most likely get a push back as well.

Mind my ignorance, but what is this "Book of Cain" Novel about by chance? Least that's what I'm assuming it is. To more detail to the question. It like Cain's diary, a tale of his life, note and things he has found and researched as of recent D3 to discover what Hell is up to?

I'd imagine I could look this up, but perhaps to see some information of this new book the new Diablo fans (suppose more or less myself as well) will want them to dig further into the story that I'm coming to enjoy.

The Book of Cain is basically a art/source book. It will have a bunch of art work in it as well as a lot of entries from Cain's journal explaining the events of D1 up until right before D3 from his perspective. So it will be summing up D1 and D2 and explain what's been going on in the 20 years in between the ending of D2 and beginning for D3.

Based on the history of 'prelude' books released by Blizzard. It is safe to say it will not be part of the Collector's Edition for Diablo III.

Starcraft II: Heaven's Devils was not in SCII CE
The Shattering was not in World of Warcraft: Cataclysm CE

Just to note all these latest pre-Blizzard promotional novels first released as hardbacks, then the smaller softbacks come about a year latter. Book of Cain could fit in the CE set maybe being 144 pages verses typical novel of 400 pages worth though I don't know what the size figures are.
