Q: When will my book(s) arrive?
A: The factory is currently forecasting a late August delivery for all pre-orders. Supplies are limited, so please preorder by the end of June or your reservation will be cancelled.
Q: I made a reservation, why would I need to preorder?
A: Your reservation was your intention to order, but now you will need to pay for your book(s).
Q: Can I wait to pay until the books are shipping?
A: You are more than welcome to take your chances on getting a book once they are shipping, but supplies are limited.
Q: Why is shipping so expensive?
A: Each edition is heavy (16 lbs Super Deluxe; 13 lbs Deluxe Edition; 11 lbs Open Edition). In some cases, foreign order shipping prices exceed the purchase price of the book. We understand that this may be more than you wish to pay. Please contact us if you wish to cancel your reservation.
Q: Can you claim this is a gift for export?
A: No, these books are being shipped by a professional facility and we cannot falsify customs forms. Your books will not arrive with duties prepaid as part of the purchase price or shipping.
Q: I am ordering more than one book, can I have a discount?
A. Each book is boxed individually. We cannot offer combined shipping in our current setup. In the extraordinary case where you are ordering more than 3 books, please contact us and we will try and accommodate you in some way. In most cases, the size and the weight of the books only increases the costs; in many cases shipping the books individually is less expensive domestically.
Q: I missed out on reserving my book! Can I still get one?
A: Yes! Preorder now. Quantities are limited and we have the right to refuse or refund any order made in error.
Q: I bought your original Monkees Day-By-Day book. Is this just an expanded version?
A: No. This is a completely rewritten version of the book with all new illustrations, color images and previously unpublished interviews, information and photographs. Note: The original book contains some photographs not carried over into this edition, so you may wish to keep it.
Q: Will you ship internationally?
A: Yes! We would be delighted to ship you a book anywhere in the world. Due to the weight of the book shipping costs are particularly high. We have made every effort to minimize these costs, but we do not set the shipping rates.
Q: How much does the book cost?
A: There are three versions of the book; details and pricing for each can be found on the reservations page.
Q: Will there be an electronic version of this book?
A: No, there will be no electronic versions of this book available. And no further editions of this book (i.e., electronic, cut price or audio versions) are planned for the future.
Q: What forms of payment will you accept?
A: All payments will be handled electronically. No physical forms of payment (cash, checks, money orders) will be accepted.
Q: Why is the book more expensive than the original edition?
A: The original edition was a mass-produced, trade paperback that was distributed in retail stores. This new edition is a limited-edition book of more than twice the size and content printed in a small batch just for fans by a fan. The printing is of the highest quality and surpasses that of the original edition. It will not be available in stores. Furthermore, any site that offers the book other than beatlandbooks.com is a reseller. The quality of their delivery and condition of their copies cannot be guaranteed.
Q: I am reviewer/journalist/influencer; can I have a free or discounted copy?
A: This is a limited-edition product, and no promotional copies will be offered.
Q: I am planning to buy a hardback edition eventually. Will you offer this edition of the book beyond the preorder period?
A: No. These are being made to order in a custom quantity. After the initial orders are fulfilled, the remaining copies will be sold and the remainder of the softcover edition (not numbered and not signed) will also be available in a limited quantity.
There is no plan to keep this book in print perpetually. If you want a book, we recommend you reserve the copy or copies you want to buy. We are making enough to fulfill the reservations and a few spare copies in case of returns. If you do not reserve a book, you will be waitlisted.
The original paperback edition now sells for more than twice the price and that was produced in a far greater quantity and available for several years. This new edition is sure to rise in value and will undoubtedly be resold on eBay for far more than a copy directly from this site.
Q: Can you personalize my autographed copy?
A: We are sorry, we are unable to offer personalization. The hardback editions WILL be signed and numbered.
Q: How do I get the lowest numbered book(s)?
A: The Super Deluxe Editions will be the lowest numbered books and priority will be given to the earliest reservations.
Q: Is this product authorized by the Monkees and/or Rhino Records?
A: This book was created with the cooperation of both. However, it is not an authorized account of the Monkees’ story, nor does it claim to be a product of the trademark holders of The Monkees.
