Hats off to CreateSpace for their delivery speed. It’s even faster than I remember.
I placed two orders in the past week, and both arrived, as they say, lickety-split. The first was for a box of books. I placed the order on Friday September 25th. It arrived Thursday October 1st. Count ‘em: six days! And that was the slow shipping method, the least expensive one.
The second order was for two proofs—Throw Away Kitten and Quarter Castle Chronicles-Volume One. I placed it on September 29th. It too arrived October 1st. That’s two days—two days to print, package and ship those two books to me. Again, I used the cheap, slow shipping method.
Since I started ordering books from CreateSpace more than four years ago, more than one order has gone astray, and I had to reorder. Once I reordered, received the second order immediately only to receive the original order a month or more late. That one was unexplainable.
All orders placed in the past year have arrived in a timely manner, but none as fast as the two arriving at my door on Thursday.
Have others experienced the same super speed delivery of books from CreateSpace? Do you think—like one writer jokingly suggested when she heard my story—drones are now making deliveries.
