YULETIDE TERROR Book delay updates

Spectacular Optical Update Dec 23: As mentioned in a previous update, the Yuletide Terror books were over a week late from the printer and arrived on December 13th. After spending a week packing and shipping, I’ve gotten out all the North American books (as I hoped these would at least have a chance of making it before Xmas), but the overseas books will be shipped Tuesday when mail service resumes. I will be attempting to email everyone affected by the Yuletide Terror delay directly a certificate today that you can give to anyone you intended the book as a Christmas gift for (also posted HERE so you can download), as well as a discount code that can be used toward a future order. I sincerely apologize for this delay, the books were not only a week late arriving from the printer but I also overestimated my physical ability to pack and ship this many books in a short time.Thankfully I had a couple friends put in a shift or two helping to pack (Liane Cunje and Leslie Hatton, looking at you heroes!) but it has still mostly fallen to me on my own, so I sincerely apologize by any inconvenience or stress this has caused you this holiday season. – Kier-La Janisse
