Please share this information with others in your family in case I have missed anyone who might wish to purchase this book. I do not have contact information for all family members.

BOOK COSTS AND SELLING PRICE

From the beginning of this project, I had no intention of making any profit. This effort was truly a labor of love for me. The only costs I hope to cover from the selling price are my costs for printing and packaging of the books.

SHIPPING COSTS

After extensive research, I elected to use Spain’s Correos national postal service for shipping. Books were shrink-wrapped by the printer; I will mail the books using specialty boxes designed to protect the corners of hardover books while in transit. The books will be mailed from Fuengirola, Spain. No customs duties should be assessed to you upon receipt of the book.

Shipping costs are outrageously expensive everywhere. COVID has dramatically impacted all facets of the shipping industry. Lack of availability of shipping containers, ships, and personnel aboard ship has reduced sea freight availability and reliability. This reduction has increased business usage of air freight, reducing availability of air freight capacities, thereby increasing air freight prices. Shipping costs assessed for the book are the amount of shipping I have to pay. No additional handling fees have been assessed.

CORRECTIONS TO BOOK

I will issue an addendum, at a later date, to individuals who purchase the limited-edition book. This addendum will contain my updates and changes or corrections submitted from readers after the book’s printing. The addendum will be distributed free of charge.
