This isn’t a real post. It’s just a quick update.
Last week I looked at my list of people who’d signed up for one of the free 5,000 bookplates I’d autographed and I found out that there were actually 6,000 people signed up. Then I sighed deeply and called my publisher and asked if they could send me another thousand and a wrist brace and then they hesitantly told me that there had been a miscommunication and that the 5,000 bookplates I thought I’d autographed? Were actually 10,000 bookplates. Which explains why my right arm withered and fell off when I was done. But the good news is that my publisher still has a few thousand unclaimed bookplates so if you preorder your book by midnight tonight (March 16) make sure you sign up for the free bookplate. You can preorder your book and sign up for your bookplate right here. Also, if you’re preordering an electronic version of the book you can totally have a bookplate. Just stick it to the back of your reader.
PS. Picador just announced that they’re publishing my book in the UK. Yeehaw, Britain!
PPS. I haven’t heard if non-US publishers will going to offer bookplates, but I’ll keep you posted.
