All those who preordered The Story of the Ancient World should receive their books by the first week of January 2007! We have received word from the printers that the books have been printed and are on the truck bound for Nothing New Press! All preorders will ship the week between Christmas and New Year’s.
We have also finally resolved the problem with connecting to the Nothing New Press website, so that we can now post updates and finish uploading the Ancient World pages. Most of you know that we moved to a new home and office in September, at which time we also upgraded our old and worn out computers for new, thinking better technology would help us make updates to the website more quickly and finish the Ancient World manuscript more easily. What actually happened is myriad problems transferring data and upgrading programs from our old systems to our new, and when those issues were finally resolved, we found we were unable to connect to our website from our new location.
We daily faced new problems with the technology, getting the Ancient World manuscript transferred to the upgraded data file required by our printer’s, and solving such was my first priority. When there was a lull in that battle, we worked on the website connection issue without success. Finally, at the beginning of December, the last of the Ancient World file problems were overcome, which enabled us to work on the website connection full time. That problem has also finally been solved. Before we close for Christmas, we will finish uploading all the Ancient World links.
Speaking of Christmas, normally we are closed between Christmas and New Year’s. But since we have heard from our printer’s that the books have been shipped, we expect them to arrive the day after Christmas, and we will not be closed that week, as we will be shipping all the preorders before the New Year. We are so excited and much relieved around here, and thank all of you from the bottom of our hearts for your patience through this difficult process.
