It’s hard for me to realize I’m “international.”
I mean…it doesn’t seem like that long ago I was sitting at Waldenbooks (ask your parents, you younger folks) at an alleged “signing” where I didn’t sell a single copy. What I did do, however, was explain to people that I was the author, not a salesperson for the store, when they asked me where the bathroom was.
So it still amazes me when I have signings in places like China and Brazil, and people tweet me from all over the world. Amazes me, and humbles me.
Since I’m “international” now, I often bump up against the reality that some of my readers, obviously, duh, aren’t in the United States. Until now, this has limited what I can do for them. I’ve not been able to accept international orders at the bookstore where I sell personalized, autographed books. I’ve not been able to take international currency for editing work. And so, a lot of my readers have been disappointed.
But no longer! First, as of right now through February 15, everyone can get 20% off any order from my bookstore. That includes the super-rare Collector’s Edition of “Arthas: Rise of the Lich King.” Stock for some books is getting low, and in many cases when they’re gone, they’re gone. I urge you to visit now and place your orders! It’s my way of saying how much I appreciate you!
And as for my wonderful international readers:
1. You, too, can place orders through the bookstore now! We’ve just put this up, so please let me know if you run into any difficulties. Shoot me an email at email@example.com and we’ll work it out!
2. If you want to hire me to critique your writing, I now accept Paypal! Drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
3. Coming soon–I may be able to sell foreign language edition books from my website! These are very rare and I only have a few, but it would be lovely to get them into readers’ hands!
So…happy Valentine’s day, everyone, and thank you for supporting me and my work of the heart. <3!!
