"The Art of Faery" has landed here in the US, and my stock is on its way here to Florida =) So it should just be a couple of days before everybody's books are shipped! I was so worried that there would be another delay, and that it wouldn't get here before Christmas - phew!!! =)

Hi Rubidia!!! Yeah - Amazon's got them back-ordered for a long time now for a future printing. I can't believe how popular the book is! This current shipment going out now has already been pre-ordered by us contributing artists (we get ours first!), Barnes & Noble, Virgin Megastores, Hot Topic stores, and I think Border's. I guess they probably preordered before their stock before Amazon did, and sold out this printing, so Amazon has to wait for theirs. Basically, if a book isn't available within a certain amount of time, Amazon will say it's unavailable and cancel pre-orders. If you check back with them in a while they will probably be accepting orders again, but in the meantime I definitely have them available (signed, too!)! You'll also be able to find them shortly in the stores I mentioned above. If you'd like to order from me just go here:

I saw the art of faery in a fantasy store when I was shopping in Utrecht (Holland) and it looked great, but I didn't buy it. Afterwards I was so sorry I didn't 'cause it looked so pretty. Sooo I ordered it online from an American bookstore in Amsterdam :) I can't wait for the day the postman is going to ring the doorbell and give it to me :)

Hehe - it's funny - since it's already been released in some countries outside the US, I have gotten a HUGE jump in my international fans - eBay bidders, emails, website visitors, etc., all who have found me through the book!

Your work is great so I really understand that there are lots of people being fans :)
Actually I found your journal first before I ever saw or heard about the book. I guess I read about it in your journal and then recognised the book when I saw it in a fantasy shop :)

Yea!! Way to go Jasmine!!
I ran into the same problem with Borders, they called and canceled my order too. I told the woman on the phone that it was ok since I could get it off your site, she was thrilled and wanted the name of your site so she and some of her friends can order one too.
