    I'm guessing here (haven't really been involved with that project), but the trade got pushed back until March 2021 and I think the plan had been to publish them at the same time. So I'm under the assumption that we have to wait for our editions until the trade. Just guessing though, Brian might know better.

    Everything is now ready for the printer, so it's just a matter of Richard getting this one into the printing queue. We still have a printing backlog, unfortunately, from having our two major printers go out of business without warning while we were trying to print Sleeping Beauties, but we're making progress on the list. Thank you for asking!

    Looked at my outstanding orders and thank you for the updates on Graveside Manner 1 & 2, but want to get updates on the following that I show are still open:

    X_CDCC6 - not sure what book this is to be
    Four Halloween's 2
    Shivers VIII
    Wow, Jamie! It has been a minute. Sorry to hear about your wife's employment. Like so many of us, I'm sure you're ready to put this year behind you.

    Hi TJ,

    Looks like the productions update page for those needs to be updated. Shivers VIII just needs a slot at the printer (along with soo many other things). I don't think we're still waiting on a sig for Four Halloween anymore Brian should hopefully be able to confirm.

    As far as the CDCC 6 goes, you got the book for CDCC 6. My records show that was Better Weird, and it was shipped several years ago. Interestingly enough the produce X_CDCC6 is actually still showing as backordered, looks like we didn't put enough inventory in the system back when we sold that originally so about 30 of the service items are still on back order, when they should have just filled immediately. So X_CDCC6 isn't actually a real product, it's a fake product that automatically adds all the other things that came with the CDCC to that order.

Since the books are in hand the lettered is just now in the "Needs Traycases" queue. Which is actually emptying out and we'll be caught up there before we know it.
    Awesome! That's what I thought. If the signed limited is any indication, the Lettered Edition is going to be fantastic!

    I think my copy is scheduled to be delivered today but USPS tracking doesn't seem to be working right now. I agree that it's odd that it was removed from the Production Updates page before all of the editions have shipped. Perhaps that was an oversight.

    Correct. It's shipping right now.

    Yeah, 2020 sucks for a lot of reasons.

    I don't mind being patient. I just need the occasional reminder that I wasn't forgotten or had the package stolen off my porch without me even knowing it. :-)

    Thank you!!

    Sure. Graveside Manner 1 and 2, Chart of Darkness, and In the Porches all just need a slot at the printer. In fact pre COVID all of those were on the books for earlier this year. COVID brought our printing plans to a crawl so we had to re-evalute the schedule.

    Graveside Manner 3's sig sheets are still circulating (this type of sig sheet always takes awhile).

    Last but not least, the titles in the book club are never really fixed until they're announced. That 3rd book is not longer Suicide Diary, but is a different book by Brian. I think that one is ready to go as well.


    For what it's worth we currently have a really large number of projects that are just ready to go. We just can't send them all at once because of limited availability at the printers. Hopefully things at the printer (and the case maker for that matter) will setting down / pick up pace again soon and we can get rolling on some of these other projects. COVID really wrecked Brian and my plans for this year.
    I know I sucks. 2020 started out so great for you guys. Then like everything else............. Hopefully things get back on track by the end of the year.
