As I’ve said elsewhere on social media, shipment of The Sword of Shannara Limited Edition has commenced.
It is going well. We found a great way to double bubble-wrap the book and put foam on either side of it to stop the book from being near any corner of the box to prevent damage in transit. If a book does get damaged, it will have to be something hugely significant for it to happen!
As of right now, my assistant Hunter and I have shipped out up through #400 of the US domestic orders and international orders with only The Sword of Shannara on the receipt. That’s pretty good for three days of work. I know I said on the website that if all three books were ordered on the same receipt, they would not ship until The Wishsong of Shannara was printed. My shipping software allows me to split orders now, and while splitting an order and shipping the books individually costs me a bit more in shipping, you guys have been patient and I can absorb those costs a bit.
This is not true of international multiple-book orders, of course, because I literally can’t be hit with an extra $50 of shipping for every international order. When we are done with shipping out the US domestic orders and individual-book international orders, I will make a post here for those of you international customers who want to send Grim Oak Press more shipping funds to split your orders.
I hope all of that makes sense!
We will commence shipping on Tuesday. Hunter has PAX Seattle this holiday weekend so my boxing machine is gone for the weekend. But when he returns to Grim Oak Press, we won’t stop until all books are shipped.
There’s your update! Happy weekend!
