Update | Coming to you SOON + Book preview

Hi everyone!

It's been awhile since I last talked to you. There haven't been any cool updates to share since TCM was doing its rather mundane thing of sitting at the printers, getting shipped out, sorted at the warehouse, etc amidst the long delays caused by the pandemic supply chain issues...


The BOOK is REAL!!

I just received my author copies and everything looks FANTASTIC!

It's so awesome seeing both volumes together!! Design synergy!!

And here's Zeynel getting the premium fancy boy treatment with gold foil all over him, as he deserves.

And some of the insides:

Video of me flipping through the pages.

So when is everyone getting their copies?

By mid-June, Unbound will be beginning to ship them out with the rewards (the enamel pins, carpet bookmarks and signed bookplates).
You will receive an email about when your order goes out. Digital rewards will be sent directly to your inbox.

The book's official release to the public is in early August.

This will most likely be the second last update from me on Unbound re: The Carpet Merchant Volume II.

Thank you so much for your continued support and sustained patience. I really appreciate it (I always keep saying this but I mean it, seriously).

<333 With love,

I am really looking forward to reading Vol 2. Oh no! I will have to reread Vol 1 beforehand. :)
