Chapbook Shipping Status Update

A hot pink graphic with black hatchmarks and yellow text saying “handmade poetry is worth the wait.”

Here is the scoop for this week. We are in the home stretch for both of these now. Please remember that orders are filled in the order they were received.

This week, November 28–December 2, we are working to fill orders that came in on the following dates:

  • Take Me to the Water by Irene Vázquez, from Oct 24 on
  • I Prefer the Forests Making Blankets from Themselves by CAConrad, from Oct 10 on

We appreciate your patience! I will email you with your tracking number when your package has gone out. I will update the email autoreply each week as necessary, so feel free to check back.

Thank you!

Important Chapbook Shipping Update

An announcement graphic in yellow with multicolored abstract shapes around the edges. The text says: Chapbook Shipping Status. This week, November 7–11, we are working to fill orders that came in on the following dates: Take Me to the Water preorders placed Oct 10–15. I Prefer the Forests Making Blankets from Themselves preorders placed Oct 3–10.

Because y’all have been so enthusiastic, I have a lot of chapbooks to make! I’ve set up an email autoresponder to answer status questions and will update it each week until I’ve caught up. OK? Thank you for your patience!

This week, Nov 7–11, I’ll be working on TAKE ME TO THE WATER preorders that came in between Oct 10–15 and I PREFER THE FORESTS preorders that came in between Oct 3–10.

It’s a bit hard to explain, but well before we “go live” with preorders, we actually already have a backlog. Our subscribers mostly signed on in the spring, for instance, and our authors also sometimes need the first batch for a launch event, etc. So even if you smashed that button on the first day, so sorry, you are not actually first. 😂

I’ve sent out…let’s see…about 150 copies of these two, all told. And yours is coming, I promise.
