While we all work on keeping each other safe in regards to containment of the Covid-19 virus, I will not be going to the post office, especially because I live in busy London. For the time being, until this seems additionally unwise, luxurious, and/or Royal Mail guidance says otherwise, I will continue to send out book orders by placing them in the postbox around the corner. A short walk and fresh air is important (where possible), and I appreciate how nice it is to get happy-mail and to have new projects on the horizon.
Things I can’t do without going to the post office: I am unable to send larger parcels (more than two books) as they won’t fit through the slot. Using this method will not allow me to get proof-of-postage. Also, if you would like a tracked service, these will be sent out once visiting the post office seems OK again.
Do leave me a message when you place your order to let me know any specifics: you might already want me to hold-off sending the actual book till things have stabilised. Or you might just like to say hello.
When you order a book from me, you will receive a PDF of the book once I have processed your order (in a separate email to the order-placement email, so keep an eye out). The PDF is only available to those who have purchased the book and not as a PDF-download only. My apologies to those who wish this was possible. This remains a hard call, but I made the complicated choice (for many reasons) to print a real book and to have it done nicely, and that’s what I would like you to experience.
