[Mesa, AZ] Brick Cave Media today announced the anticipated holiday availability for it's books and other products as the holiday season approaches. The announcement comes with the caution that availability is subject to demand, and that items listed as available now may become unavailable over the course of the season.

Additionally, Brick Cave has compiled a "safe ship" date recommendation for orders places direct. All recommendations below are also subject to negative influence on shipping providers for delivery delays. Brick Cave cannot take responsibility for issues impacting shipping process delays and provides the dates below as best estimates.

Shared Bob Nelson, Brick Cave's Principal Support Executive, "As much as the Pandemic was a challenge in 2020, we have a good selection of titles on our shelves and ready to send. Normally, we would swell our books on hand in anticipation of our annual event schedule. With no events to speak of, we have those books available to our online store."

Best Practices

"Our higher end formats, such as hardbound editions, will be in short supply to order direct from us." stated Bob. "We encourage our readers to order hardbound editions from our independent bookstore partners, because it helps them, and it helps us get their attention, so we do not normally keep a large inventory of hardbound editions. If they show up in the BC Square Store, jump on them. They will be signed by the author and thus much more special."

Additionally, for the reader in your life that loves digital reads, Brick Cave encourages giving the gift of eBooks this holiday season. Flexible, convenient and available from most retailers, eBooks are a great giving option. The same can be said for Brick Cave's audio books, they can be flexibly given as gifts from the Brick Cave Store on Amazon.

Order Early. The sooner we can get your order to you, the better your chances obviously of receiving it on time. Also, if we run out of inventory, at this date we most likely would not receive new stock in time to turn that order around for you.
