HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY

We are making eBooks thru the day, so you can still get them as well as Gift Cards.

Read previous posts for daily info that was posted.

(POSTED Today’s update is for Feb. 13, 2012 at 12:25 pm EST🙂

We just took our last batch of overnights to the post office to be delivered tomorrow.

Now we can deliver eBooks (pdfs) to you via your email address.

Ebooks are a quick, inexpensive option for a Valentine’s Gift. We have 17 titles starting at $14.95 that are delivered within hours to your email as a pdf, which you can reemail, put on a thumb drive, read on your computer, or print out. Settings for some of the eBooks include Paris, Hawaii, a dude ranch, a Caribbean cruise, Dublin, Exuma, the golf course, and the vampire series.

If your lover reads on a Nook or a Kindle, an eBook is a great option. If you’ve never tried one, this may be your time ($14.95 for a personalized story where you star with your Hunny in a sexy, romantic story verses a dozen roses (at lot more than $14.95 delivered) – duh, no brainer).

We also have Gift Cards available that will be sent to you electronically as well. They make great gifts especially if you know the person wants a paperback or hardback and you don’t know all the answers to the questions (or have run out of time to get a book). You’ll find them on our site here: Gift Cards

As to the rest, as a year-round business, we are still taking all orders (that will be delivered normally within a week), so when you think romance or anniversary or birthday or Mother’s Day, think YourNovel.com where we make you the star in your own personalized romance novel.

There is more info in the previous postings letting you know you can’t get anything else except plain paperbacks with US Express shipping, eBooks, and gift cards.

For this week we throw them out the window and focus on getting books out quicker by adding staff and equipment.

• Also, we know you want to know where your book is, but calling about where it is will not speed anything up. We will respond quicker to an email and get to your concerns as quickly as we can.

(POSTED Today’s update is for Feb. 9, 2012 at 9:30 am EST):

All stands the same for all orders coming in by Feb 9 at 8:15 am EST.

But if your Valentine is a Nook or Kindle reader, think eBooks.

(POSTED: Today’s update is for Feb. 8, 2012 at 11:20 am, EST:)

• Yes, plain paperback books that are ordered today with standard shipping (USPS Priority Mail) look great for delivery by Valentine’s Day, Tuesday, 2/14/12. We just spoke with the paperback printers, and they are doing a great, speedy job.

• The same with the hardback printer. There’s still time for Valentine’s delivery of hardback books with and without photos, in the U.S. with our Express shipping (which is $23 extra – Express is $30; regular shipping is $7 so $23 is the additional cost).

So get your order in today as soon as you can.

More updates follow for today:

• When you get the standard auto-emails with your order confirmation, production status or shipping notification with time estimates for when to expect your book. Ignore them. We are not joking. For this week we throw them out the window and focus on getting books out quicker by adding staff and equipment.

Also, we know you want to know where your book is, but calling about where it is will not speed anything up.

Here are current updates:

• There’s still time for Valentine’s delivery of paperback books with photos in the U.S. with our Express shipping (which is $23 extra – Express is $30; regular shipping is $7 so $23 is the additional cost);

• Time has run out for ordering a book to be shipped out of the United States.

• Each book shipped USPS Priority Mail will have a tracking number, but only Express/Overnight orders have shipping guarantees;

• Ebooks are pdfs of shorter novellas and full-length books and can be delivered anywhere within hours, so these are even delivered electronically on Valentine’s Day. You must have an email address;

• There is always the option for an online gift card to give this Valentine’s. Go to: Gift Cards.

NOTE: Our normal shipping times are expedited this time of year. If you read on our site or get an email that says paperbacks ship in one week, hardbacks two weeks; don’t worry: it’s faster for Valentine’s.

Finally: These shipping updates assume that the U.S. mail runs on schedule and that there are no natural disasters or big weather events to affect mail delivery (which, obviously, we cannot control).
