Yes! The cheapest way (for everyone) is for us to send some books to Amazon CA and have the books shipped from there. It may take an extra few days, but it'll definitely save on shipping costs for you and us.
Yes! For this book, the initial wave of pre-orders will be sent out from our living room, which means that we'll be able to send it anywhere. It does, unfortunately, mean that shipping costs are high. VAT is the main reason we're not storing inventory in Europe, and since we're still pretty small, we're not left with very many choices. But we're always looking at different solutions for better distribution, so one day international shipping won't cost so much for our products!
Normally, our books are warehoused at Amazon and sent from there. But with the recent experience of sending out a bunch of pre-orders all at once from Amazon with the 2nd Edition DIY book, we decided to do the shipping ourselves for the first wave of pre-orders. This means no huge boxes! We're going to use flat cardboard mailers to keep the book safe and flat while shipping, and it'll let us get the book to you faster. After the first wave of pre-orders, we'll go back to shipping this book from Amazon like we do with our other books.
For our Canadian customers, we're still going to use Amazon CA for fulfillment for all pre-orders, simply because it'll be so much cheaper. But for everyone else, we'll ship the books ourselves.
