Carciphona book 2 preorder!

Journal Entry: Sun Mar 4, 2012, 5:01 PM




"Veloce has finally left her home behind her, but the forces of the  King and Blackbird are not her only concerns. A mysterious illness  threatens to take her down before she can leave Kronzel."

Carciphona Volume 2 is now available for preorder at my shop at shilin.storenvy.com! :D


And as usual, I am hosting a (almost) month-long preorder event from Sunday, March 4 to Saturday, March 31 to promote my newest book! Order the book during this period to be eligible for:
  • A discount!
  • Much cheaper shipping to the USA ($5 per maximum of 2 books rather than $8 each)
  • A place in the preorder raffle


:star: :star: Preorder raffle :star: :star:

All preorders are entered into a raffle for a chance to win your order for free! (ie. refunded) The number of winners depends on the amount of preorders: for every 50 preorders, there will be one more winner chosen. The first 50 preorders will receive a bonus entry (for a total of 2) into the raffle! All gone ): An e-mail has been sent to all those who made it on the list :D

Winners will be announced and contacted on April 2 (just so you guys don't think I'm trolling)

:star: :star: Shipping :star: :star:

All preorders will be shipped during the first week of April, right after preorders end. With the release of volume 2, I am offering combined shipping for those interested in purchasing both books to save shipping costs for you. If you would like to switch out one book for another (eg. 2 copies of volume 2 instead of 1+2), please clearly indicate in your order note or e-mail me to confirm ahead of time. Shipping prices are as follows:
  • Canada: up to 2 books per shipment: $5
  • USA: up to 2 books per shipment: $5
  • International: 1 book: $11, 2 books: $14


:star: :star: Cash order :star: :star:

If you would like to preorder, but do not have the means to pay for it online (ie. cannot use paypal or credit cards), you can choose to mail your payment to me. However I will not be responsible for any lost payment (though it has never happened in the past ~30 cash orders I have received). Please write me an e-mail at shilin@ashen-ray.com indicating your interest and I will send you everything you'll need to know! Unfortunately cash orders will not be entered into the raffle ):

I get so lazy to read these. I'll wait till there's a good amount to read, then I'll get into a Carciphona marathon. Usually I finish comics that way.

It says this:

"We are sorry, we are experiencing temporary difficulties. Please try again later. If this error occurred while making a payment, avoid duplicate payments by checking your Account Overview before resending a payment."

Is there another payment way?

The only other option is by mail which I would not recommend if you are able to pay online. If you did not receive a confirmation e-mail from storenvy saying what you ordered and giving you an order# (6 digits), the payment has not gone through. If you find the payment did go through as shown on your paypal or credit card account, please send an e-mail to me (shilin@ashen-ray.com with your name, e-mail and payment date, and I will find it and refund it to you.

Sorry for the trouble ):

So I have to wait until April for the cheaper shipping on getting both first and second volume? :)
Reply
:iconshilin:
shilin Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
If by wait you mean wait for it to be shipped out: Volume 2 will not be shipped out until the 1st of April as it has just be recently released, so even if you decide to pay regular shipping, you will have to wait until then for it to shipped ):

If by wait you mean order in April, then no actually, I may or may not keep the shipping discounts as it requires me to give my books to someone else to ship for me.

Hope that answered your question!

How much will be if I ordered both volumes and the artbook+shipping? (lives in USA)

art book will have to be shipped separately due to weight, but I can ask for you. Please send me an e-mail at shilin@ashen-ray.com; it may take a couple of days for me to find out though since I would have to arrange with my friend ):

Was wondering - though I most likely will be ordering them in a months time if they're avalible.
If I was to order your Art book, and both of the Carciphona volumes, how much would it cost in shipping? (lives in UK)
Reply
:iconshilin:
shilin Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
it would be $30 due to shipping weight constrains, however I can ask my friend to check shipping everything at once from the USA (rather than Canada) for you if you decide to purchase all my books, as he might be able to figure something out. Please write me an e-mail rather than purchase directly from my shop if you decide to do it (:
