It's getting close to the end of the year, which for published writers, means inventory. At the end of each year I must count the copies of the books in my house to report on my taxes.
Last week, I spent several hours cleaning my book area. I am down to 50 copies of Replication in hardcover! (I once had 500 copies, so this is a big deal for me.) This is the original book that you see pictured below.
I want to get rid of these!!!
Why, you ask?
Because my publisher sent me author copies of the paperback version with the new cover, but I don't want to take them to conferences to sell until all the hardcover books are gone.
So I'm going to give these away to the first 50 people who order them through my Square store. They are free, but it costs me $3 to ship them. So you'll still have to pay $3 to get the book. But $3 is a great price for an autographed (personalized) hardcover (now limited) edition of a book.
Anyone need some Christmas presents?
No more than one copy per order/person/address and I can't mail them internationally for $3 shipping. So if you live internationally and want one, we'll have to figure out what the international shipping cost is. If you're interested, click here to see the free copy of Replication in my bookstore.
Today's quote comes from one of my characters.
I remember writing that line and smiling, fighting back a chuckle at Martyr and how he'd come alive. Today I want to ask you all to share in the comments a quote from your work in progress that you are particularly proud of and/or a favorite quote from a published novel.
