Plan ahead! Order Books For The Holiday Early to Avoid Year-End Shortages

Authors make holiday shopping easy!

Books make ideal gifts for year-end holidays. They are lightweight, inexpensive, interesting and are sure to become a treasured keepsake on your recipient’s bookshelf.  Everyone loves to receive an autographed copy of a book, especially when it is given by the author and inscribed with a personal message inside.

All our authors have to do to prepare for that season is to jot a quick email with a book order to us. That is, except as the end of the year approaches.

The Year-End Publishing Shortage

What is this “year-end shortage”? We’ve reported on the problem a number of times. Our most recent overview of the annual problem was published in September.

Now that it is mid-October, we are sending this second reminder: Don’t miss out on giving the gift of your inscribed book this holiday season.

Order holiday gift books now and avoid the holiday rush. Our printer recommends that hardcover orders be placed before November 26th, and paperback orders before December 3rd, to assure holiday delivery. Rush and Express order options will NOT be available after November 22m 2019.

Send an email to [email protected] today and let her know how many copies of your book you’d like to order for holiday gift giving.
