I officially launched my book last Saturday and the response has been overwhelming. We almost crashed the Amazon site in a matter of hours. Sarcasm aside, I am genuinely moved by the showing of support by so many.
The two requests since I put the book on sale are:
1. Will you send me a free copy since we went to summer camp together?
The reality is that I only receive $5.22 profit from a sale so it’s not like I’m racking in the dough from my end. Also, like I wrote before, my intention isn’t to make money, it is to sell as many books as possible to parlay it into a bigger deal to write more books in the future. Sending books for free won’t count towards my sale/NYT Best Seller quota.
2. Can you send me an autographed copy?
That’s a fair request if you want my serial scribble corrupting your hard copy. But it does make the whole thing more special, especially if we did go to grade school together or however we are affiliated.
That’s why I’m pleased to announce that this Saturday I’m not only giving away 100 copies for free but I will also be there ready to sign them.
The book signing will take place at the State Department store between the hours of noon and 6PM.
