It was a valuable lessen learned and I take my time at checkout and make sure I have confirmed the order.
    I almost always copy the purchase confirmation screen into Word and copy the details of the order into the same document and save it. I then list the relevant information into Excel. I say almost because early this year I made a few purchases via my phone and I do not have the Word documents for those. The spreadsheet allowed me to quickly surmise I had not ordered the Trade.

    Yes, same for me...it's been well over a decade, maybe as many as 14 years since I first ordered this tome.

Yes, I am finally glad to have it, but where it used to mean something special to me, and something I looked forward to, my brain and interests are in an entirely different place now so also like you I'm sad and profoundly disappointed in that it took so long to get it. It's also mostly the reason I promised myself to never order another book from CD unless it's in stock. If it's not, it's a pass. Sometimes a hard pass, but given its overall track record (and I'm sure I'm not alone on this), there's just no reason to believe I will get the book anytime soon, as in years. Again, sad indeed.
    I think you misunderstood me. It's almost like I didn't want the book to ship because the waiting has been such a big part of this. Now there is no more waiting.( That's what makes me weird. I kind of enjoyed the build up and the wait.) I am very pleased with this book. It's gorgeous. I have been and will continue to be supporter of CD even for preorders. I understand that not all of the delays were the fault of CD. I also know that 14 years q there was an uncertainty inn the air at CD because of personal issues that Rich was going through and talked about a couple of years later. I am very pleased with the book and it was definitely worth the wait.
    Great job with the book CD.

    For once I am actually glad that I was late to the Cemetery Dance party and didn't order the Signed Limited Edition until March 25, 2019. The wait will be relatively short for me.

    Hopefully everyone who ordered The Best of Cemetery Dance 2 several years ago will find the book impressive enough to make the wait less painful.

    Nice to have you here, Kama1. Hope you like the book itself when you receive it, even though you’ve moved onto other interests.

    Is there a reason my reply to bookworm 1, made more than 48 hours ago, was not approved for publication? After waiting for a book order for more than 14 years, do you not think I am justified in supporting bookworm 1's 'sadness' and for myself, how getting a notice for that same volume is likewise both sad and anti-climactic? Truth to power Brian and Richard. Can't simply hide from it when I am certain what I'm feeling isn't much the same as many who previously ordered this volume is. Censoring what I have to say only deepens my resolve to see something and to say something. Again, just saying.

    Got my shipping notice today for the trade edition. It’s kind of weird, you would think after the long wait ( when I ordered this book I had 3 kids in grammar school now my youngest has just finished up her first year of college) you’d think I would be excited about finally getting it. While I am and can’t wait for fall to get the limited edition I also feel a little down. It’s like the wait has been so long and it never seemed like the book was going to come out , that now that the end is in site it’s kind of sad. .... I know but I’m weird like that

    Does this ARC have the same content as the Pinnacle paperback? If so, I must add it to my McCammon want list. (I am a hopeless McCammon completist.)
