Lots of questions about shipping, especially international shipping. Here are the details. It's simple, really:
All prices already include shipping costs.
- If you're in the US, your items will be shipped 2 or 3 day priority mail.
- If you're international, your items will be shipped First Class international through USPS, which has variable delivery times based on the destination.
For our international friends, I'll also be offering an option where you can expedite shipping by paying the cost of the service. In this instance, I'll ship through FedEx. If this is something you're interested in, I'll have a way to let me know when I collect information once the project closes.
Since the support for the project has been overwhelming (THANK YOU!), right now I need to figure out how to ship about a thousand books. (Incredible!) The plan right now is to assign each donor a pledge number, and to announce as things ship by pledge number. (ie, "Books for Pledges 1-100 have shipped.") I'll be working to set up a calendar for order fulfillment once writing and production is finished.
My goal is for my communication to be as open, transparent, and frequent as possible. Hopefully this answers any questions about shipping. But, if you have any more, feel free to ask in the comments and I'll be happy to answer.
