Elizabeth Bluemle

Elizabeth rocks and is the owner of this wonderful store! We love her, but she hasn't sent me a small bio yet, so please enjoy the following facts: 1) Elizabeth only prints on teal-blue pieces of paper; 2) Elizabeth's middle name is Cassandra--after her great-aunt's pet rattlesnake; 3) Elizabeth will only use Bluetooth keyboards, because she likes the fact that she can't see how the keyboard is connected to the computer. Feels like magic to her. And she loves magic.

The real bio: Elizabeth Bluemle is the owner of The Flying Pig Bookstore in Shelburne, Vermont, and blogs about children’s bookselling for Publishers Weekly. She is also the award-winning author of four picture books with Candlewick Press: My Father the Dog and How Do You Wokka-Wokka? (both illustrated by Randy Cecil), Dogs on the Bed (illustrated by Anne Wilsdorf), and Tap Tap Boom Boom(illustrated by G. Brian Karas).

How to Use Your Gift Cards Online

Hello! If you have a Flying Pig gift card (the cute plastic one with the pig and clouds), here's how to use it online:

Select the books you'd like to order. During the checkout process, you'll see a menu of options. Click on the little black arrow next to Store Gift Card pane:

Once you've expanded that menu item, you'll see a box to check Yes:

Once you click the checkbox Yes, you'll be asked to enter your gift card number. That's the number under the barcode on the back of your gift card. It might be a short or long number:

Enter it into the box below the words Enter Your Gift Card Number:

That's it! You will have to add a credit card as a backup in case your gift card doesn't cover the full amount of your purchase. **Because the website doesn't 'know' what amount is on your store gift card — the website and store system are separate entities — you will not see your gift card applied until your order leaves its Pending status and is Processing or Completed.**

If you received an Online Gift Code (NOT a physical card, but a string of numbers and letters emailed to you), please refer to your emailed gift to redeem those! They are applied instantly when you visit the website via the gift code email.

If you have further questions, please email us at flyingpigorders@gmail.com!
