Not very glamorous, but…
How about we start the week off with an unlovely photo of a rather lovely thing?
That’s the first batch of books all set out for the post office to pick up today. A few more will go out tomorrow (at which point I will go sit somewhere quiet and pretty and do nothing at all productive or industrious for several consecutive hours).
Now, let me see if I can’t preemptively answer a few likely questions:
But what about my e book? If you ordered just the electronic version (and not the paper version), you’ll get a message from me via ravelry tomorrow when the full electronic version goes live on ravelry. There will be links in that message to let you download the electronic version.
If you ordered the paper version, there’s a code to download the electronic version inside the back cover of the book. When your book arrives, look inside the back cover and follow the instructions there.
When will my book arrive? Books usually take somewhere between 3-6 business days to arrive in the US, more like 7-10 business days to arrive in Canada. Remember that Thursday is a mail holiday in the US, so mail won’t travel that day. But I expect packages will start arriving tomorrow (for folks nearby) and most of them should be delivered by the end of next week.
If it gets to be towards the middle of the second week in December and you still don’t see yours, let me know (the best way to do that is to hit reply on your paypal receipt and send me a message, but if you don’t have that, send me an email and be sure to let me know the email address you use for paypal) and I can investigate. But until then, don’t worry, it’s almost certainly just making its way through the post office to you!
What if I missed the preorder, how can I get the book now? The electronic version will go live on ravelry tomorrow, you’ll be able to buy it there then.
The paper version is already on its way to yarn shops (if yours doesn’t have it, you can totally ask them to get it and I’ll be happy to hook them up). And it will be on amazon some time in the next few weeks.
Now…go stalk your mailbox…there are good things on the way!
