Order a signed copy of // A Bony Framework for the Tangible Universe // by D. Allen
*** MAY 2020 ANNOUNCEMENT: Currently, I am considering all orders as preorders, without knowing exactly when I will be able to access more author copies of my book and safely mail them out. Thank you for your patience and understanding. In the meantime, I will reply to each order form with a PDF copy of the book so you can dig in whenever you'd like, and will update you on the status of your order when I know more. If you'd rather have a copy more quickly, please order directly from your favorite independent bookseller. ***
Thank you for ordering a signed copy of my book, which was published by The Operating System in Spring 2019. Your support and readership means the world to me, and helps this chronically ill queer artist stay afloat financially and creatively.
To order, complete this form and send $27 per copy (the book retails for $24 + $3 for shipping within the US) via the payment method of your choice, listed below. At this time I’m not offering in-person pickup, but will resume this for local readers when it is safe to do so.
For more about the book and my other work, please visit my website //

PANDEMIC UPDATES: I look forward to putting your copy in the mail when it's possible to do so. Due to COVID-19 and my current inability to access more author copies, I do not know when copies will ship, but I promise you will know when I know. TYPICAL NON-PANDEMIC SHIPPING TIMES: It may take me 1-2 weeks to send your book out, depending on how many I have in stock and my own ability to get to the post office (I try to ship several at once if possible). That said, if you’d like the book to arrive in time for a special occasion or have other timing requests, please note that in the Comments box above and I’ll do my best to get it in the mail swiftly. For any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to message me via the contact form on my website: thebodyconnected.com. Thank you again for your support.
