You should! Seriously. These books are AMAZING, and I’m not just saying that because I get royalties from them.
And if you are…why not make that gift EXTRA-SUPER-SPECIAL by having it signed and personalized to your friend/loved one/person-you-got-stuck-with-in-the-Secret-Santa-drawing?
Because for a limited time only, I will autograph and personalize as many books as you want FOR FREE!
Well, not exactly. It’d be kind of a hassle for me to sign the actual books unless you’re within a five-block radius of my apartment (if you are, email me and maybe we can work something out).
But what I WILL do for free is send you a personalized, autographed Tapper Twins or Chronicles of Egg book plate that you can affix to the inside of your copy!
It’ll be almost exactly like my having signed the book itself, and it’ll look something like one of these:
Nice, right? Do you like the “Get hooked” catch phrase on the Egg plate? And the little drawing of a hook? There’s no extra charge for that kind of thing.
For those of you unclear on the concept of a “book plate,” it’s basically a fancy sticker. You can peel off the back and stick it pretty much anywhere you want. Most people choose the interior title page, but it’ll stick to anything, so if you’d rather put it on a notebook, refrigerator, the back of an unsuspecting victim, etc…have at it. I’m not going to judge you.
And again: THIS IS FREE, and I’ll send as many book plates as you have books to stick them in. Just send a mailing address and the first name of the recipient to geoff(at)geoffrodkey.com (using an @ instead of the (a) – I have to type it this way or Internet-trolling spambots will harvest the address from this post and send me spam email for years) and I’ll hook you up.
Email me by 4pm on December 18th, and I guarantee delivery in time for Christmas!
Any later than that, and I will guarantee delivery by Martin Luther King Day. (For which the Tapper Twins and Chronicles of Egg books would also make fine, if somewhat inexplicable, gifts.)
