No advance single tickets

I want to book a train for Monday 4th January, but there aren't any cheap singles. Is this because they haven't been released yet, or because they've sold out? Are returns for those dates released before the advance singles?

Cheers

    As far as I recall fares are released 3 months ahead of the travel date, so they might just be all gone as it's jsut after new years weekend, so it'd be a popular time to travel i'd guess.
