“Slight problem. 88 of the books did not arrive at the conference,” said Chuck Blakeman. “The U.S. Postal System said they were lost.”
When Blakeman inquired about filing a claim, he was told he had to wait 30 days. He did not have to wait long to find them. Around the same time the books should have arrived in Georgia, he said found them listed for sale online through Amazon.
“Found quite a few of these on sale, used, on the site, which doesn’t seem possible because they’re not out in the public yet. This is a new edition,” said Blakeman.
He emailed the seller, Big River Books, and discovered a new marketplace that even we didn’t know about. “They said they bought them at a Postal Service Auction Center in Atlanta,” said Blakeman. “I didn’t know there was such a thing.”
