I’ve been lucky enough to have people who have wanted to commit to buying my book ahead of time, so I wanted to try to give something back. But what? After much thought, I came up with a bit of a freebie bundle to include an online greetings card voucher, a pack of 5 free Christmas cards and I created a bookmark, for which I ordered a small batch. No others, with this specific design will ever be printed and they’re only available, free, to those who have supported me with pre-orders. Now, I’m no literary author so the likelihood of me hitting the big time is probably pretty small, but even if I don’t make best-seller lists and widespread fame, if my books gather a bit of a following with people who like a bit of a light-hearted and, at times, quite juvenile comedy read, maybe my limited-edition bookmarks could, one day, be worth more than the book they came with!
My proof-reader is estimating Tuesday, 12th September for completion, after which there will be a couple of days of re-formatting and then it’s finally off to the printers.
To my pre-order readers – thank you! I hope you like the goodie bundles when they arrive.
