    If they can find them in their busy schedules to get it done. Not a jab at you, Brian but your (CD's) customers have been waiting on the publication of this book for over two years now. It's time they are told to take a day or two and get this done. The time for asking politely is behind us. I understand I'm extremely naive in the world of the small press, but is there nothing in the contract that states all parties involved need to meet their obligations by a certain date? And if they fail to do that, maybe they shouldn't be invited back for future projects. It seems from the outside looking in, that authors, artist, whomever can take their sweet ass time getting around to it.

    My rant has nothing to do with the printer problems you guys experienced. Completely understandable and out of your control. This project (Strange Weather), IMO, should just be waiting to be printed vs waiting on folks to sign.

    2 different grab bags. The new grab bag is a Review Copy grab bag. Which we shipped the previous one a couple weeks ago. The books in the grab bag you're talking about should be going to the printer in 2020. I don't want to be specific as I don't really know what the printer schedule is outside of what's currently at the printer and what I'm hoping to send in the next couple of weeks.

    We were on the Disney Dream which was a new ship at the time. It's the only cruise I've ever been on.

    She loved it but did say it was a bumpy ride. Not stormy but enough motion to feel it in the room.

    Hope you enjoyed the Disney cruise! We took the whole famn damily on one a couple of years ago and enjoyed it immensely.

I did get a shipping notice for Rosemary's Baby though. It seems I should have gotten something one way or the other since it's been the logjam in the queue.

    Early Readers Forthcoming Grab Bag - this shipped earlier this week
    Rosemary's Baby (Suntup) - Shipping currently
    Little Yellow Book (Borderlands) - Shipping next week

    Shipping in December:
    Full Throttle by Joe Hill
    Dark Tower DJs (Overlook)
    Sleeping Beauties Art Portfolio
    Misc Lettered Editions - We've received cases for a number of outstanding lettered editions as well. I'm hoping to get these shipped in December


    This is just a brief overview of what's shipping. I'm sure there will be other stuff that shows up and bumps around the order.
