COVID-19 and Book Sales
Tuesday morning, April 7. Thank you for all the orders that are in Sleuth's inbox. I decided to escape the city for a few days and plan to return tomorrow morning. At that time, I will respond to y'all. In the meantime, remember social distancing.--jd.
As of Wednesday, March 25, Sleuth has been declared non-essential--the fools. What that means is we cannot allow anyone in the bookstore. We are allowed to process on-line and telephone orders, so, feel free to inundate us with them. Let us know if you want us to ship (we use Canada Post) or, if you want to come collect the order. We'll arrange a mutually convenient time to make the handoff! It seems a bit of a grey area as to whether or not we can do these handoff deliveries, but, as long as we remains at arm's length, we should be safe. Promise to not get too close.
Marian and Ms. Pixie, are self-isolating at the cottage; Pix's concept of six-feet is a little suspect. I'm in the city, trying to keep away from the alcohol. We are all well, show no sign of infection, and wish the same for you and yours.
There is a lot of information on the website—reviews, plot outlines, cover illustrations, inventory on hand—to help you select books and ordering off the site is easy. There are instructions, just below, but feel free to call and we’ll walk you through the process. The last six issues of the newsletter can also be found, under the Newsletters tab above.
The first list of Clearance titles is also up there. Pretty basic. We will be adding more titles periodically.
When we re-open will depend on how things are progressing on the COVID-19 front, but we’ll keep in touch. This page will be kept updated. Please be careful.
JD and Marian
