Several readers have sent me mail telling me how they’ve purchased The Search as a Holiday gift for office mates or family and friends. A couple have even sent boxes of them to me so I can personalize them for the office. That makes me a happy happy author.
It struck me that I should perhaps promote the book as a good Holiday gift right here on my site. After all, if anyone might appreciate such a plea, it’d be you guys. So here’s my offer. If you want, buy the book and then let me know you did. In the body of the email, write a short inscription you’d like printed on a book plate (a sticker/label) and I’ll print it on the label, sign it, and mail it to you (include your mailing address as well). That solves the problem of sending the book back and forth, now I just have to mail a label to you. Then you can stick the label on the inside cover or first blank page of the book. Voila, a personalized holiday gift!
If you think this sounds cool, why then first buy the book on Amazon or wherever, then email me with your address, message, and perhaps a snippet of the purchase confirmation email (so that I can see that you actually bought the book). I promise to do as many as I can before Christmas….
PS – The Search is being published in 13 countries so far, including Brazil, Latvia, Hungary, France, Germany, Spain, China, Korea, Japan, and the UK. Wow!
Update: The Economist has named The Search as one of the best books of the year. w00000t!!!!
