FAQs

Are Skips allowed for the subscriptions?
Skips will be allowed for 2023 except for the Book Club subscription, you will not be able to skip this box. We may limit skips in 2024 for the big book boxes but for now, skip to your lou my darlin'.

Are there skip limits for the boxes?
For now you can skip any box as long as you do it before the skip date. Refunds will not be issued once charged. 

Will we have the option to buy again if we miss or can't buy during the individual sale month?
We would never say never but we will not have any pre-planned reprints. It will depend on demand, our capabilities at that time and author approval. 

If I'm on the waitlist will I get priority access?
We will give the waitlist early access. Previous subscribers will get first dibs, a 24 hour window. Anyone else who was on the original waitlist (the google doc from our linktree) will get an email with a link to subscribe and they will have 24 hours to purchase their chosen subscriptions before it is open to the public. Space permitting.

Would you ever consider shipping directly to international locations?
Honestly, we would love to but it just not feasible for us at the moment.
We have a VERY small team and when we add all the extras steps and fees necessary for international shipping it becomes too time consuming for us to maintain.
The fact that third party shipment rerouting is an option is an absolute blessing to us as it means international customers are able to get in on the Dark and Quirky action. 
This may change one day as our team grows.  

I received a tracking number, does that mean my box has shipped?
Yes! When we purchase and print out your shipping label you automatically get an email with the tracking number. This is why it might take time to start showing movement. If we print your label on a weekend it won't be scanned in by the post office until the following business day. 

Is there an option to pay the full year up front?
At the moment, no. Unfortunately not. 

Will there be a waitlist to join the subscriptions?
Yes. We are going to be ordering books VERY far in advance so we will initially have a limited amount of subscription spots. However, we will be able to increase our numbers as the year goes on so if you are on the list we will be able to open up spots. 

Will SEs have sprayed/stenciled edges?
Some will and some wont. Our Wicked Tales subscription box will likely have Sprayed edges and our other box options will not. Although we may surprise you with the odd one if it fits and we are inspired. 

Will everyone on the waitlist be able to get a subscription?
The waitlist is VERY long so it is not guaranteed that you will all get one right away but this was the reason we split our subscriptions. Some people only want Paranormal/Fantasy and some might not want any of it so we hope by giving different options it allows more people to get in and get exactly what they want.
