Over in the New Year's wishes comments section, Fear Death By Water asked about autographed copies of This World We Live In. In lieu of answering directly, I set up a poll.
What I did for Life As We Knew It and the dead and the gone was have bookplates created and printed, which I signed in red ink for anyone who wanted one. I distributed more than 2,000 of them and sent them all over the world. Most went to individual owners of the books, while others were given to book discussion members or placed in copies for sale at independent bookstores or given to classes who read one or the other book.
I have to order them 500 at a time. I did a couple of re-orders and then I stopped.
But now with d&g in paperback and This World We Live In soon to come out, I'm giving serious thought to reordering plates for the first two books and getting a new one designed for the third. The latter will probably say Trust In Tomorrow. I don't know what the moon will look like though, but of course there'll be a place for me to sign it (in red ink).
The way it would work is that you would email me if you want one or more of any or all of them. Then I sign them and stick them in an envelope and put on the appropriate amount of postage and off it goes.
Once you get the bookplate(s), you do whatever you want with it, which could include putting it in the book it was designed for and thus making it a pretty much autographed copy.
But I have no way of knowing if there's an interest in any of this, which is why I put the poll up. Like all my polls, it's totally non-binding, and there's no need for you to email me just yet, especially since I don't have any bookplates to mail out right now. The poll is there to guide me in my future plans.
You let me know what you want, and I'll have a much better idea of what to do!
