This box set collection of my books with signed copies of Looking for Alaska and The Fault in Our Stars is coming BACK to Amazon in a limited quantity and is available for preorder now. For this, I am thankful.
SOME QUESTIONS AND THEIR ANSWERS:
Q. How is this possible?
A. I am signing a lot ofbooks to make it happen. Many people who wanted box sets didn’t get them because Amazon ran out so fast, and this made me sad, particularly since the holidays are coming up. So this is happening due to 1. much pleading on tumblr and 2. my
addiction to love of signing things.
Q. Why is it so expensive?
A. I have no control over whether, or when, Amazon discounts the stuff they sell. I am hopeful that they will discount it at some point in the future, but I can’t guarantee it, and they have not discounted it yet.
Q. Will it ship in time for the holidays?
A. Probably not by Hanukkah, but hopefully by Christmas. While I’m optimistic about delivery by Christmas, I definitely can’t guarantee it. It depends partly on how long it takes me to sign these books, which I am going to go back to signing as soon as I finish this tumblr post.
Q. Is there anywhere else I can find these box sets?
A. Yes, many bookstores have rare UNSIGNED box sets, and many Books-a-Million stores have box sets containing signed TFiOS (but not Alaska). You can also find signed copies of Looking for Alaska at many independent bookstores across the country.
Q. What if I don’t live in the US?
A. These signed box sets are only available through Amazon USA, so you’d have to pay the extra shipping, and they’re unlikely to arrive before Christmas. On the upside, you probably have free healthcare, so that’s something.
tl;dr: A limited supply of box sets are back. Preorder here.
