Spy School Graphic Novel release delayed until Feb 15 due to shipping issues

Hello everyone –

If you have been paying any attention to the news at all lately, then you are well aware that there are plenty of issues with shipping products to this country.  Container ships are waiting weeks to get into the ports.  Disappointingly — but not surprisingly — this has affected the delivery of the Spy School Graphic Novel.  Due to the need for full-color, the books were printed in China.  The ship they were on was supposed to dock in mid-December, but now will not be able to do that until the end of the month, which means that the original on sale date of February 1 is not possible.

So the on sale date has been moved back two weeks, to February 15.


That means that, instead of having a month between the release of the graphic novel and Once Upon A Tim, there will only be two weeks between book releases, which is very rare for an author.

I am sorry for this inconvenience.
