You ask: How many shipments of books have been lost or delayed in the past two months?
I answer: Four.
We agree: How is that even possible?
So... My book, Unimaginable: Volunteering for Ukrainian Refugees is published.
So excited. Yayyyyy! BUT...
It hasn’t arrived. I don't have any copies. Grrrr. I ordered copies from two different printers. BOTH have lost shipments.
How is that possible, to have two different companies lose books? Yup. Okay. Fine. I reordered from both of them. And now both shipments are delayed. BOTH!!! Sigh. One of the orders went from Connecticut to New Jersey to Massachusetts to North Carolina. Um. Hello? The other order has been sitting in a warehouse in Newburg for days. And days. Just sitting there. An hour away from me. Sorry to all of the people who ordered preorders. I expected to have books to send-- on October 15th. Now I'm hoping -- really hoping -- they will be here by November 15th. Did I mention that all orders come with a bookmark? I know. Classy. Maybe those who waited so long will get … two bookmarks?
Let’s not hold our breath. Breathe in. Breathe out.
Hey, did someone forget to pay the Mail Gods? Just a thought.
Please join me in a communal crossing-of-the-fingers that the books make it before the New Year.
Thanks. For. Waiting. This. Out. With. Me.
