Media Mail is a two-edged sword. I went to the post office to find out what happened to a manuscript I mailed on September 30, 2005. They said they had no way record of it, no way to trace it, or even any method set up to monitor Media Mail. It seems to me like is is a wonderful way to “lose” stuff.
The same day, I got an e-mail from the publisher saying they finally received my manuscript. Six weeks later. It’s almost funny.
