    Same. You can't refuse the quality of a Lividian publication at 50% off!

      I was surprised to see it there, frankly. Assuming CD gets the standard 40% trade discount (and can Lividian even offer that kind of discount with its production quality?), it’s puzzling to see them then selling it at 50%, i.e. at a loss. Whether it’s a need for a quick injection of cash or something else is just speculation and none of my concern…I’m just pleased to get a great deal on a terrific release.

        It actually wasn't supposed to be on the CD site anymore but got missed by the new web guy, ha... I've moved some things around to get CD extra copies. I didn't feel it was right for those orders to maybe get cancelled because they had already sold their allotment. I've experienced the "oh crap, we missed that was still on the site, gotta beg the publisher for more!" feeling a few times over the years...

          Ah, that explains it — thanks for the clarification, Brian, and thanks, too, for helping CD honor their sales after their oversight…very kind of you to do that for them and for us.

                  We'll begin packing direct orders this weekend and hopefully finish up by the end of next week, which is when retailers will be packed and shipped.

                  We'll start printing orders and shipping labels in batches tonight or tomorrow, but nothing will actually go out the door until Monday because there's a lot of organizing to do to match up people's numbers, etc.

                    Our deluxe signed, numbered, and slipcased Limited Edition hardcover of The Store by Bentley Little has started shipping. Please note: we might print your paperwork (label and packing slip) a few days before we can actually pack your book due to how we have to handle the numbering and organizing of the books. Don't panic if your label prints on Saturday but doesn't show any tracking on Monday or Tuesday, etc. It will take us through next week to pack and ship all of the orders, but we are moving as quickly as we can. If you have ANY questions or concerns, please reach out to me: [email protected]

                      The custom slipcase for FAIRY TALE will be shipping in a few weeks! This slipcase has been tested on the Simon & Schuster 1st printing hardcover (both USA and Italy printed) and the Simon & Schuster Limited Edition, and the fits are good. All other editions (like Non-US editions) are untested.

                      Payment request emails will be sent out TOMORROW, Tuesday, March 14. If you preordered directly from Lividian and do not receive the email by early afternoon (New York time), please let me know. (Paying ASAP will really help us ship these more efficiently, thank you!)

                      Also, here is a general update on my Patreon rewards for the rest of the year:

                        The Lividian slipcase for Fairy Tale is probably the best aftermarket slipcase I have ever purchased. I have two versions of the book. The fit for the US 1st (US Printed) is perfect with brodart on the book. The fit for the UK 1st while slightly tighter is still near perfect. The only negative, and it really is not a negative, is that the cover image for the UK edition does not fit with the cut out.

                        I will also add that Mr. Freeman continues to under-promise and over-deliver with his Patreon!

                          We almost got lucky on that UK edition! If the title design was a little different, the window would have been perfect.

                            If the title was not visible it would be great. The image is actually a perfect fit.

                              Wow, these pictures look great. Makes me even more excited to receive mine, which should arrive this weekend! Don't know how Lividian is able to turn their slipcases out so quickly when it feels like it takes other publishers forever! Kudos to Lividian & their slipcase makers!!!

                                Just got mine and the special edition from Scribner fits absolutely perfectly.

                                Kudos to Lividian for the entire process from pre-order to payment to delivery.

                                2 thumbs up and I'm a very happy customer.
