I'm checking my email box regularly.  Peter mentioned in May/June Pricepedia that he'll send out a bulletin on the book via email.  I hope it is a pre-order form exclusively for Pricepedia subscribers!

That sounds like something that Peter might do, alright. Maybe he might even sign the copies purchased by Pricepedia subscribers. Was that hint too obvious??

Excellent suggestion!   :w00t:  That probably means I'll have to buy two copies so I won't wear out the signed copy.

I hope the pre-buy on the book comes soon! So ready to read the new book 3 times over on a bunch of caffine!!! I wish Peter would jump on the thread and let us know something!

I'm still working out details with several printers to decide which one. An announcement will come very soon.

Peter, are you planning to publish in eBook (preferably epub) format as well? That would be great! We can carry your book on our phones...

No plans for an ebook at this time. A hardcover is likely, though.

Pre-publication orders for the "Gold and Silver Panda Coin Buyer's Guide 2" outside of North America were shipped from Hong Kong yesterday. USA and Canada orders will go out September 1-2 as soon as I return to the USA. Thanks to everyone who ordered and for your patience.

Peter, send me your phone number, I'll give you a call tonight and you can read all the changes and updates to me over the phone.  I'll set aside some time, how about 5pm - 1am, will 8 hours be enough for us to cover everything?  Awesome, talk to you later!

Nope, not yet, just checked today's mail but no prize for me.   I'm sure I'm in the early pre-order group....my PayPal payment went through for pre-order exactly 17 minutes after Peter's pre-order announcement went out ;)

I expect the rest of the books to be delivered in the next week to ten days. They were shipped by Media Mail which can be slow.

I just received my two books today but I was never in a hurry either ... I knew the goodies were coming  :thumbup1:

Although I have not yet had an opportunity to go through the book in great detail ... what I've seen so far is awesome !

Great job Peter ... I appreciate your dedication to the Modern Chinese Coin hobby and more specifically the Chinese Panda.

If you are ever in the area from Lafayette to New Orleans, look me up and a fine dinner and drinks are on me as well as a personalized tour.

From the beautiful paradise here in South Louisiana ... many thanks from the Comeaux family !  :001_smile:

So Peter can't come here and discuss this with his paying clients??  :ohmy:

Interesting. Not good.

In the 80's used to be sales manager for a financial magazine that was $5,000 a year, the most expensive magazine in the world. It was couriered around the world from Heathrow on Saturday morning. It arrived between 6-9 am in each local market.

If a client was delayed, all hell broke loose, because others were trading on advance information. The delayed recipients are put at a significant disadvantage in the market. We would provide a free subscription, and fax the missing copy immediately. That was pre-email.
http://www.ifre.com/about/#S1

In comparison. this situation is rather sloppy. People will think that certain parties were in an advantageous position. I don't have my copy. I preorderd. I am at a disadvantage in the market. Missing copies couldn't be scanned and emailed?

Someone might think this is very poor service.

Thanks for saying what I was thinking! It looks like people thousands of miles away in Asia and other places in the world already got their copies! I read many people on this forum discussing the content of the book as if it is common knowledge! Answering a question on this thread, Peter is "thinking" about selling his book at the long beach show in few days. So, what happened to the whole pre-selling and limited availability? In any industry or situation, this would be considered bad customer service!

All copies that were preordered have been sent. US orders were shipped by Media Mail. If anyone hasn't received theirs please send me an email or message with your name so I can check it against the mailing list. Thanks and apologies for any slow deliveries.

International orders were shipped slightly before North American ones because the printer finished the job two weeks behind schedule and I was already in Hong Kong by then. That wasn't the plan but it worked out that way.

FWIW I received my signed, pre-ordered copy today and I live in Ohio. I am hopeful for my fellow forum members that they receive their books very soon. It looks great and I can't wait to dig into it later this evening. Thanks Peter!
