Orders for paperbacks and hardbacks arriving after Tuesday, Feb. 8, 2022 at noon likely will not arrive by Valentine’s Day on Monday, Feb. 14. Ebooks, however, are still available and are delivered electronically within 24 hours.
Our printing facility experienced a two-day shutdown due to bad weather, which is beyond our control and theirs.
We have to make each book one at a time and then get it in the mail. We ship all books in the U.S.A. by US Priority Mail (2-4 day delivery) as our regular shipping method. Out-of-country shipping is slower.
The United States Postal Service does not guarantee shipment. Unfortunately, neither can we.
As always, we cannot guarantee delivery of USPS Priority nor US Express by an exact date. Even with EXPRESS shipping, each book has to be handmade first, which means you cannot order one day and expect your book to be there the next day.
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 none of us have any such concerns. We simply cannot be held accountable for delivery problems caused by circumstances beyond our control.
Final bits of advice:
1. Consider an ebook. Ebooks go out within 24 hours with no shipping costs and arrive by email.
2. If you think your printed book order may be late, do not use the date February 14, 2022 in your dedication date, but say something like Forever and Ever or I’ll Always Love You.
3. Keep in mind that you can celebrate Valentine’s through the whole week, not just on the actual day, and give the book then.
4. Have a backup plan, like at least get a card. Here’s one that you can download for free: Custom Gift Coming Card
Lastly, we operate year-round, and these books are great for anniversaries, weddings, birthdays and anytime to say, “I Love You.
Thanks. We appreciate your business and your understanding.
