No hill for a climber is my husband's favorite phrase of encouragement, often offered when anyone is feeling a bit daunted or facing some kind of setback. Such a setback came upon me about a month ago. We printed 500 copies of CREATIONS, only to have them rendered defective by a poor binding job. The binding issue was overall minor, but I felt it was unacceptable for this book—an art book—and for all the featured artists who put their faith in me to present their work in a professional and quality manner.
So, we reprinted the books and sent them to a new bindery in Dallas. I received the books a couple of days ago and they are, like Mary Poppins, practically perfect in every way! The delay cost about 3 weeks but, since I was actually ahead of schedule, all is well.
Tomorrow, 10 boxes of books will ship to an Amazon Fulfillment Center in Dallas. It will take a few days for the books to be processed and available, but it won't be long now.
