More postal prices go up

I had a shock this morning (1st Sept 2020) when at the post office, they said the cost of postage had gone up again. This time its because of increased air freight due to Covid. All a load of crap of course but we have to pay for it. What it means is that prices have gone up by a lot. I think it’ll be cheaper to buy one book at a time rather than 2 or 3 in a group.

Buy books separately

Following the price hike by the USPS on external packages, I’ve noticed that it’s cheaper for you all to buy the books one at a time, rather than 3 or more together. For example, 2 buyers in the last couple of days bought 3 books and the postage cost was £21.18, whereas if they had bought each one separately, it would have been 3 lots of £5.30 (£15.90). Packages are classed as being over a certain size and one Casca book is under the package dimensions and is classed as a large letter. So if you want 3 books, buy them one at a time and you’ll save loads. The dollar value of the pound today is $1.30 so those prices equate to $27.53 and $20.67.

US postal prices to skyrocket

In order to stave off financial collapse, the USPS has announced that from 1 July 2020 prices of parcels from abroad will increase by 100%. Sadly this means that on book orders of 3 or more the postal costs will go up by a fair bit. To avoid this, order your books in 1s, because the price of smaller packets are unchanged.

Also my stocks of Cascas 44 and 52 will be replenished on Monday 22nd June (the 79th anniversary of the German invasion of the Soviet Union), with Casca 43 following maybe by the end of the week.

Latest news during coronavirus pandemic

To keep you all updated, here are the latest pieces of news:

  1. Books are taking longer to get to destinations due to two factors: illnesses at the postal services around the world, and secondly because so many are at home now, locked down, they are ordering lots of stuff online which is adding to the backlogs, so please be patient.
  2. I am slowly adding to my low stocks. In the past couple of weeks I’ve had new stocks come in of Cascas 25, 37, 39, 42 and 51. I have in the pipeline new stocks of 47, 48 and 52 due to arrive shortly.
  3. I am still trading and will process orders two or three times a week, depending on the number of sales I have.
  4. I am planning Casca 53 to be out in August or September. It is to be called The Last Defender and is all about the siege of Constantinople in 1453, and Casca gets involved in that epic battle.

Low Stocks

Getting low on some Casca books here (I’m actually out of Casca 47: The Viking) but I do have orders in for Cascas 37, 42, 47, 48 and 52 which should be arriving with me in the next 2 weeks.

So don’t worry if you see low stock or out of stock on my books, replacements will be on their way.

Still trading

Despite everything, I’m still sending paperback book orders around the world, so fear not if you’re concerned about any effect of corona virus on Casca book supplies. We’re still a going concern!
