    Am glad to hear that this title is progressing. Feels like forever ago that it was announced. Held off on a trade copy since I ordered the limited. Can't wait to finally read this story and to see what the exclusive bonus from Stephen King will be!

    Believe me, I could tell you stories... But my lawyer advises me to zip it!

    No, no, no Keith! You're supposed to hold on to those for a year or two
    Somewhere out there is someone who received their signature sheets and thought "this is EXACTLY what I need to level out that wobbly table leg!"

    Just a head's up: I got the signature sheets for the limited, lettered edition from Ben Baldwin this past week, and just finished signing them. I will drop the package off at the local FEDEX place tomorrow, where they will head off back to CD. It looks like a very nice production, and I was honored to be a small part of it!

    Thanks for the reply, Dan. I went back and checked my order and it was for the Limited Edition. D'oh! Sorry for the confusion. I'll go wipe the egg off my face now.
    Ahh no problem. The limited edition won't be out until sometime next year. The book is a completely different interior design and trim size, and will be printed at a different printer.

    We sent shipping notices on Friday of last week. You should have gotten yours. Amazon and Barnes & Noble broke release date and started shipping about a week and a half early, apparently we aren't big enough or important enough for them to care about the release date. We had already made special arrangements with USPS for having our packages picked up all at once so we didn't overwhelm the local post office. Pretty much every pre-order (unless it was bought over last weekend) was shipped out the door on or before 11/18. I think the international orders went on Thursday of last week and FedEx / UPS orders went on Friday of last week. Everything else went on Monday. If you didn't get a shipping notice, feel free to drop me an email and I'll check on your order.

    Today I received Gwendy's Magic Feather in the mail. It's a bigger book, longer, than Gwendy's Button Box. One thing that really struck me was the blue color used on the dustjacket. IMO, the pictures of the dustjacket online simply do not do justice to actually holding the physical book. Whoever designed the dustjacket sure got it right!

    That's good to hear. I really enjoyed the first book, although it seemed to have very mixed reviews.

    Random question, but, did you guys ever announce the winners of your Gwendy's contest: "Win A $250 Gift Certificate From Cemetery Dance Publications"? Can't remember seeing if the winners were announced yet. If I overlooked that info, I apologize. I never win these sorts of things but am always excited when someone on the forum ends up snagging something cool via the contests.
    I won one of these things, a contest (Not a contest run by Cemetery Dance) years ago. Some contests I enter, some I pass on. This one had appeal to me with the Win A $250 Gift Certificate From Cemetery Dance Publications.

    I don't think we posted it here, but we did post on social media. Not sure if this link will work, but here is the post on Facebook:
