I realized this morning that I’ve been blogging for almost four years. A most enjoyable, surprising four years.
And now we’re entering an exhilarating and slightly unnerving new phase.
The publication date for The World’s Strongest Librarian grows ever nearer. The publicity machine is cranking wildly and there are lots of great things happening behind the scenes that I’ll be able to share soon.
A couple of days ago I asked you to please ask your local libraries to order the book. I’ve already received many responses from readers who did it. Thank you!
Today I have a more personal request. Lots of people are asking me questions like, “What can I do to make sure you get the biggest royalty per copy?” or, jokingly, “How can I call Oprah and tell her to pick you?’ These are good questions from kind folks, but it’s too early for either of them.
Right now, here’s what I need more than anything
If you ever plan on getting my book, the most helpful thing for me right now is if you can pre-order it. This week. We are all hell-bent on getting a bestseller out of this book and this will go a long way to making it happen.
So if you plan on getting a copy, but were going to wait until launch date, I’d like to personally ask you to pre-order a copy instead. And sooner is better. Any of the buy links on this page will have the same effect.
If you do this, and you’re willing to mail your book to me, I will happily sign it and send it back to you.
Thank you. Seriously, thank you!
