Pre-Order Book Info & Special Give-A-Way

I thought I'd answer a few questions about the book, pre-order

and announce an extra little something ;)

How are the books being shipped?

I am shipping everything Flat Rate Priority Mail - US - $4.95, International - $12.95.

I know...I could send it Media Mail in the US but let me explain why I am sending them Priority ~ first the cost difference between Priority & MM is about $1.40. Not much of a savings when you consider that Media Mail is usually the last bit of mail to be sorted and takes 7-11 days shipping. Another plus is that Priority Mail is supposed to take 2-3 days ~ you get to start playing all the sooner ;) and I can get free delivery confirmation so we both can track the package and know exactly where the book is at.... no lost packages :) I like that a lot!!

International Shipping

Since Pay-Pal didn't offer multiple shipping options I had to break down the international shipping charge by adding the difference into the drop down box in the Signature Preference area.

US books are listed for $20.00 and International are $28.00. The extra $8.00 difference on the International book option is actually just the rest of the shipping charge that I wasn't able to add in the shipping charge area. So it works out to Book = $20.00 + $12.95 Flat Rate International Priority Mail.

(NOTE: Int. Flat Rate PM is actually cheaper than sending it as a First Class package.)

So, if you are International, please use the appropriate selection in the drop down box :)

Multiple Book Orders

If you would like to order multiple books please e-mail me and let me know. I can send you a PP money request with the appropriate postage. Only one book fits into the flat rate mailer so I will need to investigate other shipping methods.

That was most of the questions people were asking so on to the extra little surprise....

I have been sorting out all of the boxes of goodies that were used as examples/projects in the book. As you know I am posting some on Etsy (link on the right hand side), Mom has claimed a few of her fav's, I am giving a few as gifts to people I had in mind when I made particular projects, and I have some saved back to give away here on the blog once the book has been released.
Well, that still leaves me with a nice little assortment of projects that need to find new homes. ATC's, Card fronts, Gothic Arches, Charms, Altered Jewelry, etc...

I decided to share these extras with the first 25 people who place an order for a signed copy of the book! I will cover any additional shipping costs that might be incurred so if you are in that 25 you don't have to worry about any extra shipping :) Just my way of thanking you for your support of my dream!!

I also wanted to let you all know I understand if you'd rather order from Amazon or buy your book locally to save on shipping fees ~ I know how tight things are around the country & world so it's totally no worries :) Like I said ~ even if you're not one of the first 25 people to order I have a stash of goodies held back to give away here so you still have a chance to purchase necessary as they say ;) LOL!!!

So, hope that answers all your questions but if it doesn't, please feel free to post or e-mail me ~ happy to help in any way I can!

    I just found your blog site on Tim's site and have spent the last hour reading and is now on my favorites list for quick access. I had to order your book as collage and altered arts are my passion at present! Hope I get one of your "goodies"....I promise to take very good care of it!
