The Books Are In!

The books have arrived, and will begin shipping immediately. It will take us about three days to get all of them out the door; we have 2000 pounds of them, an actual TON, to move, pack, and take to FedEx, UPS, and the Post Office. We are overjoyed to be doing it. Books Are In!

Please give your books time to arrive before emailing Kate ( to check on your order- all US domestic orders should be at your door by March 18th, and all foreign orders should have cleared Customs by March 31st. If yours hasn’t arrived by then, let us know.

Of course, many of you will receive them in the next few days- and we would love to hear from you! Leave a comment, or come to our Facebook page!

      Thanks, Debbie! I just taped up your box, actually, it’s going out today. Very excited for you to see them! I put in extra Smarties for the shop. It is frustrating to have to hand-wrap, but it’s really quite in spirit with the project, which has at every point demanded (and deserved, I must admit) more skin in the game.

      We do always advise against event-specific hopes for work in progress… ; ) It will be a lovely birthday present. I only wish I could find your envelope in the sea of finished and already sent shipments to draw a big birthday heart on it for you.

      Mentally, I am doing this. If you spirit-guide the red pen when it arrives, you will draw exactly the heart around your name and address I just imagined.
