That brown thing (below) is the most wonderful mailer! They are padded, but NOT with plastic. I finally found such a thing and they just arrived the other day. It gave me a special satisfaction and joy today to get a book ready to be mailed out (it was an already published book)!
Little Star and Eliore will arrive Thursday (Mar. 4) in Castlegar, and will be picked up and distributed to stores on Friday. Early bird orders will go out that day, or Monday (Mar. 5th or 8th)…that is barring snowstorms!
