We’ve heard from several customers that they have not yet received their copy of Calvin Cobb, especially customers on the West coast. Here’s the straight dope: We printed the labels on Nov. 13. All of the books were packed and put into the mail stream on Nov. 14.
They were sent Media Mail, which can be slow this time of year. And it is probably especially slow this year because of reports we are hearing from other shippers. Media Mail can take up to 14 business days to reach you.
So I wouldn’t be concerned until after Dec. 1. We apologize that we cannot speed this up.
The Book of Plates
Our shipping company has boxed all of the pre-publication orders and delivered them to the postal service as of today. These also are being sent Media Mail, so it could take a couple weeks for you to receive your book, especially if you live out West.
Thanks for your patience. We’re happy that you really want your books, and we’re doing everything we can to get them to you.
