Please help with booking French trains in the a.m.

I went on the sncf site, and put in my travel times (Paris to Dijon) for June, and the morning trains are not available for purchase. When will they be available? Will they be more expensive than the later trains (74 euro for 2 tickets in second class).

Do you know if I'll find the same issue with other legs of my journey--Dijon to Lyon and Valence to Avignon? Thanks for any advice you can offer.

I don't think they sell tickets more than three months in advance

Cimbrone: You can't buy tickets online more than 90 days out from your day of travel. Also, the schedules do change, so it's a bit premature to be booking tickets for June. Wait until April.

Thanks for the replies. I was confused because there was a recent thread where someone was booking for May, and the site was telling them very few seats were left.
