Shipping Valentine’s 2016

Normally printed books arrive in one week from the day you order; ebooks are delivered within 24 hours.

If you are looking for guaranteed delivery dates, you will have to choose the EXPRESS (USPS Express Mail) shipping method. STANDARD shipping (USPS Priority Mail) is not and has never been guaranteed for delivery.

But please keep in mind that even with EXPRESS shipping, each book has to be handmade first, which means you cannot order today and expect shipment nor delivery tomorrow.

Our long-standing policy remains in effect: no refunds will be issued due to weather issues. If planes can’t fly and trucks can’t roll, no mail will get delivered.

Weather and disasters are always beyond our power, and we hope all of us have none to be concerned with. However, we cannot be held accountable for delivery problems caused by circumstances beyond our control.

Updated 2/12/16 1:46 pm EST Only ebooks can be delivered by Valentine’s Day. Ebooks will be delivered to the email address of the who ordered it, and then the ebook can be read online, printed out, or emailed to the email address of who you are giving the ebook to at any time – like as a surprise on Valentine’s Day. It’s also great to include a little personal message of your own in the email when you sent the ebook along.

Prior posts will fill you in on the timeframe of orders and shipping.

(Updated 2/11/16 5 pm EST) We received another two large shipping lists and the books that were in it that used US Express look good for delivery by Saturday the 13th.

Priority shipping may get there.

Ebooks are made and emailed within hours, right thru Valentine’s Day.

(Updated 2/10/16 9:51 am EST) Two huge shipments went out yesterday and those books look great for delivery Thursday thru Saturday.

The orders that came in yesterday and going forward have a chance of delivery by Saturday the 13th, but right now it’s best to be thinking ebooks or getting a book early next week.

If your book has been delayed, here is a link to a card you can use to announce it’s on its way. You can email it or print it out.

(Updated 2/8/16 10:51 am EST) All orders that came in by 10:00 EST went to the printers and “should” arrive by Saturday, the day before Valentine’s, which is Sunday, Feb. 14.

As of right now, no hardback books can be made and delivered by Valentine’s Day. Paperback books using US Express shipping are the only way to get a printed book .

Of course, Ebooks will be delivered within 24 hours. We have 35 available: http://www.yournovel.com/Catalog/Index/eBooks

Reading prior posts will answer more questions.

(Updated 2/6/16 5:30 pm EST). Everything stays the same as yesterday’s post, except that printed books are unlikely to be delivered outside of the United States. Please read the post from 2/5/16 for pertinent information.

(Updated 2/5/16 8:15 pm EST.) Can you still get a printed book delivered by Valentine’s Day? YES, in the United States only. Pretty much everything stays the same as yesterday’s post, with the emphasis on the word “SHOULD.” Printed books ordered thru 4:00 PM EST on Sunday, February 7, will be uploaded to the printers on Monday and SHOULD make it to US destinations by Saturday, Feb 13, 2016.

But they carry no “guaranteed” delivery unless using EXPRESS  Shipping ($30). We “think” Standard ($7) shipping will work, but with wintry weather coming across the midwest and east coast, we must stress that the only way to assure yourself of delivery is with EXPRESS  Shipping.
