Authenticity IV availability

#1 Post by Brett Johnson » Sat Nov 02, 2019 7:29 am

I'm pleased to report that Authenticity IV is at the printer. Final proof was approved yesterday and I expect books to arrive around the first of December. See additional information in the classified section of this website. Thanks to all who contributed to my never ending questions!

Vincent,

Any idea of a cheap shipping method to the UK? In 1992, Julie and I took pre-packed books in our luggage. Went through the green lane at Gatwick with suitcases weighing 70, 69, 67 and 45 lbs. Then spent around three hours later that day at the post office with Jenny Maybin shipping them to people who had ordered them in the UK and Europe, so they would have them before the Porsche Parade Europe event at Brighton.

Not planning a return trip before Christmas.

Orders can be entered at: www.tpr-inc,com

Got back revised proof with over a dozen things fixed. That's all that needed to be done at my end. I still expect them prior to December 1. Have received 70 orders since Friday evening! Thanks!

Still working on shipping options. I have verified that the media mail option we normally use can go anywhere that has a zip code including Alaska, Hawaii and other territories. I have no experience with the relative speed to the non-continental states. Does anyone else?

I have also verified that there are no longer any inexpensive options to non-US addresses offered by the USPS. Shipping by Priority Mail flat rate envelope to the UK and Europe $37, Australia $38 and Canada $27. Surely, there must be a lower rate to Canada. Only one book will fit in a flat rate envelope which has a 4 lb. maximum.

I am waiting to hear back from my UPS sales rep. Not expecting much since their regular rate is radically higher.
