JANUARY Release Date!

Hello dear Tatterdemalion-supporters,

Just a very brief note here to let you know that although I had thought in my last post that the book would be in your hands by Christmas, I'm afraid that due to the normal sorts of delays that generally accompany the publishing of a book, Tatterdemalion will not be on your doorsteps until some time in January or at latest early February. I'm SO sorry if this causes any trouble for any of you hoping to give Tatterdemalion as a Christmas present! I myself am ridiculously impatient to get my hands on a copy; patience has never been a virtue of mine. But know that your patience need only last a little longer, before this gorgeous book that Unbound is working so hard to make magnificent will be on your doorsteps. Truly, the design is stunning, I cannot wait for you all to hold it in your hands!

Sending you all so much gratitude, and a warm and loving holiday season,

I was hoping to have received an update on the shipment of the books. I have been patiently waiting for its arrival. Will we be receiving an email giving us a tracking number or date of mailing for US customers?

An update is long overdue. I realize the delay is most likely beyond your control and a huge frustration to you too but whatever the cause of the delay communication to your supporters costs nothing. Ignoring your supporters risks losing their support in the future.

I too would appreciate an update please. I was hoping to have my book as a treat in time for my birthday (first week of March), but sadly no. I do hope everything is ok?

I received my beautiful book today in London - I did buy the limited edition Herbalists Handbook version - but I only recieved the book....and not the Herbal element to it..which is a shame. If you could advise, that would be great! Many Thanks!
