09:54 am - disaster relief book sale fundraiser

Previous Entry Share Next Entry

I'm going to take care of two problems here today:

1) I would like to raise funds for the American Red Cross in the wake of Hurricane Sandy,

2) I have way too many author copies around the house, that I'd like to get rid of.

So we're having a book sale here at Swan Tower. Comment on this post, or e-mail me at marie{dot}brennan{at}gmail{dot}com, and I will sell you the following books at the following prices, including autographs and (if you request it) personalization to you or another person of your choice.

Note that the prices are a bit higher than they might otherwise be, to ensure that packaging and shipping doesn't take too big a bite out of the Red Cross donation total. (I will send books overseas, too, but since this is for charity, I will probably ask you to kick in a few bucks extra to cover the increased cost of shipping.)






Please spread the word wherever you think people would be interested. I'll try to keep this list updated in a timely manner, so that you'll know how many books are left of each type. ETA: Total raised thus far = $245

The sale will run for one week (so, through next Thursday morning, the 8th of November).

The German titles of those two books are really just the best. I feel like running around the office right now shouting "DÖPPELGANGER UND HEXENKRIEGER!"

Yeah, they actually are my favorite titles for the books. :-) It took the original titles and made them parallel in a way English can't.

If I ever form a German death-metal band, I now know what to name it. :-)

Ooh, good idea.

I'm thinking I might go "Welpen und Kätzchen!" for my death-meal band.

Who can resist 'puppies and kittens' in German?

Could I get the hardcover of A Star Shall Fall, and one of the regular hardcovers of With Fate Conspire, please? (Edit: Oh, and personalized autographs would of course be nice!)

Done! Shipping-wise, um, dunno? I'm inclined to say, let me ship the books to you and find out how much it is, and then I'll let you know how much to pay. If that sounds good to you, just e-mail me your address.
