Here we go again!

We knew it might happen. Having pre-ordered the print edition of Kimiko and the Accidental Proposal from Amazon myself, I know many of you just received a helpful update, letting you know that the book now has an anticipated delivery date of mid-December. This is out of my control.

Several Possible Options:

  • Hang tight, because you’re committed to “certified buyer” status!
  • Order the digital edition, so you can indulge in release day reading!
  • Bravely request a twinkly signed copy from the author!
  • Ask your local library to order a copy, because it’ll get it faster.
  • Any combination of the above.

Ordering books from me just became really real, because THIS was in my inbox this morning:

UPS Notification

Book Boxes. My authorial order from the printer (who is apparently quite busy at this time of year) is on its way and will arrive TOMORROW. My assembly line is ready to roll, and signed books will be bundled off to the post office Thursday morning.  Shipments in the US have been taking about a week, so expect your books by Thursday, October 25.

Having anticipated a recurrence of last spring’s debacle, I ordered plenty of books. Come one, come all. ::twinkle:: Details on how to request signed copies from me can be found under the SIGNED BOOKS tab >>

Book pictures tomorrow!

 

Now accepting PayPal

Payment Options

Those wanting signed books now have TWO payment options. You can continue to send me funds with an Amazon Gift Card (which I solemnly swear to immediately squander on books/manga) or you can send money to my new Twinkle Press account on PayPal. Either way, use the always dot forthright at gmail dot com email address. Options—you have them!

Signed Copies

A (Nice Big) Box from the Printer! Once again, a handful of these books are already spoken for, but I have restocked. Author-signed copies of Tsumiko and the Enslaved Fox are available. If you’re interested…

Tsumiko, jumbled

I’ll let you know when we’re close to the bottom of the stack, but it’s first come, first served. And as always, I have signed and numbered bookplates available for those who’ve already purchased the book elsewhere. ::twinkle::

Books & Bookplates

A Box from the Printer! Once again, a small stack of books in this new batch are already spoken for, but I do have several copies of Tsumiko and the Enslaved Fox available. If you’re interested…

Books & Bookplates

Prepping Another Batch. I can hardly believe that nearly all the books I ordered from the printer (with my super-seekurt author powers) are already spoken for, but… they are. SO! If you’ve been considering purchasing a signed book from me, I have 3 copies 2 copies 1 copy still up for grabs. First come, first served you juuust missed this round, but you can hop onto a waiting list for the next batch. And you can of course still purchase personalized, numbered book plates for books ordered elsewhere. (Or for your scrapbook, as some have done!) ::twinkle::

Since they keep flying out of here, I do have more books on order. But I think (really, really hope) Amazon will fill outstanding orders before those arrive. (My poor, poor sales stats.) I will keep you posted.
