I’m old-fashioned enough to really like the feel of an actual, physical, paper-produced book.
I know that the eBook is the way forward, and that it’s the easiest and fastest way to get to read. In fact, I actually do 95% of my reading on a screen rather than on a page, and most of my recent purchases have been electronic.
But somehow for me, it only feels like a book if it’s made of paper and I can hold it in my hands. So it was fantastic yesterday to get a delivery of some of my books in paper format – “Sittin’ on the Dock of King’s Lynn” was published last week, but now I have what I can only describe as the “real thing”.
Not that I want to put down the eBook edition, in fact, if I’d not written it I’d probably get that version myself. But the one area where the physical book scores over the electronic is that the author can sign a copy for you, and that is why I have a pile of books on my desk, all ready to sign and send out!!
Would you like a signed copy of my latest book? Just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with how many copies you’d like, details of the names/wording you want included (or leave the wording to me), and your name and full address (including zip/postcode and country).
The list price on Amazon.com is $9.99, but I can let you have signed copies for $8.99 including US postage. Unfortunately, overseas mail costs more, and I will have to add up to $5 (depending on country) for orders from outside the US.
