Packages on their way!


All of the packages have been packaged up and are being shipped today, tomorrow and Wednesday.  Some of the orders I had to split between two packages/envelopes to get the much cheaper media mail rates, and they may come on different days, so wait a day or two if you don't see all of your rewards. I hope everything is right, but we did package over 700 boxes last week, so let me know if something is missing, etc...  Thank you again!  I'm beyond delighted to see my books finally go out into the world.  

Also, I still have about 700 books that I'd love to sell and move out of my living room so if you like what you see, please spread the word via social media (instagram, facebook, email, twitter) or buy more for friends and family.  Use the hashtag #ashmaebooks and link to  

Thank you! and I hope this isn't the last time that we are in touch.

      Hi Ashley, I was just realizing tonight that I never received my package. I don't know if it is because I didn't fill out the survey info sooner, but I did finally get to it. I can't wait to see the book. Thanks! Zoe

      Received my package today. Thanks so much Ashley Mae! What great books! The drawings are fab and the stories are clever. Not sure I want to give them away now.

      The link to your shop isn't working for me... What's the address to order? I've got a lot of little readers who need Christmas books!!
