Last month my newsagent told me the next issue of Australian Bear Creations was due out on 11th April it is now the 23rd and still no sign, I asked them and all they could tell me was that they have deliveries every Monday,Wednesday and Friday I checked today (Monday ) and nothing and as Wednesday is a public holiday here in OZ I will have to wait til Friday.
Does anyone know what's going on????
I think they've done a change on it so that it is every 3 months because I queried it at one point because it seemed like forever before I got my issue. Not sure about this as it was sometime back. If you want to check it out Sheree then send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
He seemed helpful enough as I had to ask him how many issues I had left before renewing - fuzzy brain moment
it's interesting. . . they did a very nice profile on Kelly Dean & Co this winter, and so I thought I'd see what date is on the issue. . . only to find that they don't put a date or a month - or year - on the magazine. my article was in vol 17 / 4. and was released in Jan. has anyone seen issue 17 / 5 ?
Thats what I am waiting on Kellydean, I was told it was due out on the 11th of April but there is no sign of it yet.
The last issue came with a free back issue, so they were wrapped together in plastic and the price sticker on the cover was date the newagent recieved it was the 4th January so I'd say it is well overdue.
As you live in the US do you subscribe to it or just wait till it comes in?
When did you get the last issue?, sorry just curious!! Lol
I get an autoship of 4 copies each of the Bear Creations and the Dolls, Bears and Collectibles. Issue 17-4 is the last one to have arrived here in the states. I received my shipment about 2 weeks ago. We are, as a general rule, about one issue behind them being received in Australia. They always have the new issue (17-5), while we are enjoying 17-4. Having received these since the very first issue, they have always printed them without dates.
I checked the newsagents today because it is 4 weeks since it was due out so I was thinking if they are going to do it every 12 weeks instead of every 8 weeks it would be due out now, but it is over 3 months since the last issue.
I did send them an email but didn't receive a reply.
Oh well I suppose I will have to wait until the 20th, thanks again.
I did pick up a old issue from a thrift shop today so that has sorta took the edge off.
I am still waiting for my 2 issues from the last subscription ,the last isssue i rec was in DEC I have EM Simon not yet had a reply,I know they made quite a few changes to this and that but it would be nice to be notified if there are problems ,Perhaps im just being grumpy as i miss my magazine
Hava great day
I had subscribed to this magazine since its inception, and it was a great read, but opted out a few years back, and I'm sure glad I did as it gradually started on the downhill slide about then.....if I was still waiting for an issue which was six months late, I would want my money back, it's a disgrace. You know something is wrong when they don't bother updating their website for 3 years.
It's so disappointing, after the lat issue which really sparked up, it was like the 'old days'. Not a good way to treat your subscribers or advertisers... I'd be so annoyed if I still had a subscription.
And the advertisers- I wonder how many ads are in there that will be irrelevant once it finally appears? Ads for Shows people won't know about that will have been and gone by the time people get their issues- tho mind you, they often managed to get those ads wrong too.
