Delivery Schedule

We appreciate the time authors take to sign books for Goldsboro Books.
It is important to remember that publication dates are established by the publisher for the first day a book will be available for sale, and are subject to change. Signed copies will become available based on author touring schedules. We continue to strive to get your signed books to you as close to the release date as possible.  Typically our new release titles ship out about one to two weeks after the publication date.
So, as a book lover / collector, please be patient!  Signed and collectible books are always worth waiting for! 

We will process your order within 48 hours of stock being available and/or signed. Delivery times are outside of our control, but for UK deliveries, orders are shipped within 2-5 working days (it may take slightly longer during busy periods) by 1st class tracked signed for service.



Overseas delivery is also subject to Customs clearance procedures and your local postal service delivery schedule. Airmail delivery can normally be expected within 10-21 working days. However, it may take longer due to random Customs checks, and surface mail can take anything up to 8 weeks, depending on where you live.




All books are packed professionally in bubble wrap and shipped in boxes.
