Current Books/ ARCS on Tour

What is up with the mail?
I have learned a lot this week. Mainly that delivery confirmation is worth the 80 cents extra for peace of mind. Just this month over $400 of jewelry orders and books have been lost or stolen. YIKES! No more trusting my postal workers! Thanks to those of you who have emailed us to let us know you received your prizes!
Miraculously our Shadow Hills ARC resurfaced after 15 days in the Bermuda Triangle of USPS delivery.The awesome news came from Avonlea/ “Violet” at The Eager Readers She wrote three days ago…”Shadow Hills arrived today!!! The package looks like it was ripped open and taped back together, and it has a “Rewrapped at the Seattle Network Distribution Center” sticker on it. Crazier still, it was delivered at 5:15 pm (completely separate from our normal mail) by a carrier that isn’t even on our route. He is on a different postal route altogether but had two packages for our address. I am still in complete shock & was totally amazed to see it! So, if in doubt fellow book bloggers and ETSY sellers…– USE delivery confirmation!! We are…

Here are the books we currently have on tour:
Shadow Hills by Anastasia Hopcus
The Cinderella Society by Kay Cassidy
Scones and Sensibility by Liz Eland
Raised by Wolves by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
The Mark by Marilyn Bunderson
