To my friends in Canada
It recently came to my attention that folks in Canada can’t obtain my book through Amazon. The reason, as it turns out, is too convoluted to go into here (it has to do with a rather complex arrangement between Lulu and Amazon), but rest assured that you do have another option: You can buy the book directly from Lulu (by clicking this link).
Amazon’s shipping charges tend to be lower than Lulu’s, which is why I often recommend that people order the book through Amazon. Note, however, that Lulu frequently offers discount coupons — typically on weekends — that can help offset the higher shipping costs. You actually can save a fair amount of money by using a coupon code when you check out (if one is available).
In fact, there’s one in effect through midnight tonight (February 3): Use the word SHADOW on checkout for 15% off any order. The offer expires at midnight, but if you miss that one, be sure to check the Lulu site periodically for other discounts (especially on weekends).
I’m looking into the possibility of doing things a little differently when I publish the Word 2010 book so that people in Canada can order copies from either Amazon or Lulu. In the meantime, my apologies for the inconvenience — and thanks very much for understanding.
