Unshelved comic strip for 11/23/2009

Holiday Shipping Deadlines

It's time to lay down some guidelines for those of you planning on purchasing Unshelved gear for the holidays.

International Orders (including Canada) should be in by December 3 in order to have the best chance of delivery by Christmas Eve.

Domestic Orders should be in by December 17 for Priority Mail delivery by Christmas Eve.

We'll continue to ship orders after the above dates, but your odds of on-time delivery will get worse and worse. Sorry, we don't have an express shipping option.

Finally, we announced our new merchandise a little late this year so we won't have time to reorder popular items. Expect certain sizes of popular styles to run out sooner rather than later.

For all these reasons and more, we encourage you to order early and often.

BEA 2009: Erotic Romance writer MA Ellis

At BEA, there are usually androgynous angels, naughty candies, and adult playing cards at the Ellora's Cave booth, along with erotic romance authors and the books they're signing. This year I decided I was going to walk to the booth instead of walking past it over and over again. My friend Yvette agreed to help me, strange man with a video camera, avoid the creep factor and while she tried to score a few book for herself.

Ellora's Cave didn't have an RV this year (What happens in the RV??), but we weren't disappointed. We were lucky enough to meet author M.A. Ellis. She was hilarious. When she signed a copy of Love's Choice for me, I had to read it. It was a great book--I'd recommend to anyone who lusts for Matthew McConaughey. And yes, it was very, very steamy. I stored my copy on the top shelf and read it when my 7-year-old daughter's prying eyes weren't present.

Here's a video snippet of our slightly naughty and suggestive conversation. Find out more about M.A.'s work at her website.
