Lettered and Numbered buyers will be given the opportunity to purchase this edition before the live pre-order along with their order of either of the other editions, with a limit of one copy per customer.

Standard Edition Pre-Order Details

This edition will become available for pre-order on our website at 7pm BST on Wednesday 28th of September.

Due to the popularity of our previous title, there is a ‘one copy per household’ rule in place for the first 24 hours of public pre-order. You will be able to add only one copy to the basket. If any further orders are placed within the first 24 hours, those orders will be cancelled and refunded. If there are any copies remaining after the first 24 hours (at the time of 7pm BST on Thursday the 29th of September), all limits will be removed and you can order as many as you like. This is to ensure everyone has a fair and even chance at purchasing a copy when the pre-order opens.

This edition is limited to 500 unnumbered copies. This edition does not carry rights to the next Lyra’s Press title.

Lettered and Numbered owners will be given the opportunity to purchase this edition before the live pre-order along with their order of either of the other editions, with a limit of one copy per customer. Winners of either of the lotteries will also be given this opportunity when they make their purchase.

Standard Edition Delivery Details

Shipping costs will be made available shortly before sales begin.

All books will be packed into custom made, double walled cartons and surrounded by thick foam on six sides to ensure safe delivery.

The cost of shipping is calculated by the cost of the packaging, the time it takes to pack and book the deliveries as well as the delivery cost itself.

Deliveries within the UK will be sent via a 24 hour courier service called APC Overnight. Delivery times elsewhere in the world will vary depending on your location, but we would hope that the books will largely be delivered within a few days. All services will be fully trackable and you will be sent a confirmation of shipping along with a tracking number when your parcel is booked with the courier. If you have a preferred courier service then do let us know and we will try our best to use them.

All international deliveries, including to the EU, now have full customs declarations. Any import taxes, customs duties or fees must be paid for by the recipient. Customs policies vary from country to country and you should contact your local customs office for more information. Customs clearance procedures may cause delays and extend our quoted delivery time estimates.

PLEASE NOTE – We cannot currently deliver to Russia, Ukraine or Belarus.

The books are being printed in the latter part of this year. The printing and the binding of this title is quite complex and we expect to have them all finished and ready to ship in the first half of 2023. Updates will be posted on social media and via the website subscriber email as we go.
