Dear Friends and Supporters, Fellow Pilgrims All!
UPDATED 4:18PM ET, FRI. DEC 30, 2022
My sincere apologies for the recent outage of the Thebaid Store! Apparently my domain renewal failed about a month or more ago, due to an expired debit card I failed to notice, and about which I was not informed by the hosting platform. The Thebaid Store has been offline since at least late November, and perhaps since late October.
I just discovered the outage this morning, and have reset everything, however, it could take up to 24-48 hours for it to update through the DNS servers and be publicly available. Allowing for possible further delays during this holiday weekend, I would cautiously expect us to be back online no later than Tuesday, January 3, 2023.
I promise to be watching it “like a hawk” (as they say!), and will put out another update as soon as the store is back online.
As I have been posting regularly, we are eager to receive your pre-orders for The North American Thebaid Book, coming soon from St Tikhon’s Monastery Press, which helps us anticipate our initial print run, and helps offset the printing costs somewhat.
Also, and very importantly, if you are interested in purchasing the Deluxe Limited Edition Thebaid Book, in Leather binding with ribbon marker, the only way to do so is by pre-order through our Thebaid Store. This is a unique, high end, custom bound book, which will be signed and numbered, and limited to the quantity of pre-orders, plus a small number of copies for our Thebaid team. The Deluxe Limited Edition will not be available in stores or online after we go to print.
ALL PRE-ORDERS ACCOMPANIED BY SIGNED PRINT
To reaffirm my prior announcements, all pre-orders through the Thebaid Store for the Thebaid Book will be signed by me, and will be accompanied by a custom, archival fine art 8×10 print of one of the images from the Thebaid Project, mounted in an 11×14 museum archival mat, signed on the mat and ready for framing. These prints will not be available separately, and will only be available for preorder until the book goes to print.
As always, thank you very much indeed for your interest and support! Watch for fresh updates in 2023, starting off with the announcement of the Thebaid Store being back online!
Wishing you ongoing blessings of the Christmas Season, and every joy for the New Year!
