A Little Help, Please?


Hello my dear blogosphere friends. I'm taking a brief moment to announce a 12 hour special I've got going for The Sapphire Flute. If you haven't purchased your copy yet, or want a special gift, now is the time to do it. I've got it set up so you can make your payment directly through paypal and the price includes shipping, so no worries there.

For 12 hours you have the opportunity to purchase not only The Sapphire Flute, but I will number them. ONLY 28 BOOKS WILL BE NUMBERED. EVER! So, your book will be personalized however you want it, it will be numbered, and I will also include a signed picture of the author (moi), and even let you choose your picture from those below.

What else? You might ask.

Well, let me tell you. I will also call the first person to purchase a copy and speak to them personally for at least five minutes. For a child in particular, that can be a rather empowering conversation. Man, I would have done anything to get thirty seconds with a favorite author as a child. Even as an adult I long to visit with such influential authors as Anne McCaffrey. She was always my hero. Not that I'm comparing myself to one of the greatest science fiction authors of all time, just that . . . well, you know . . . *ahem* Okay, well, back to what you get for ordering your book now. I'm stealing a page from Brandon Sanderson's books (Why not? He's one of my heroes too) and if you purchase a book now, I will enter your name into a drawing.

A drawing for what?

I will draw three names from the pool, and those three people will be forever immortalized in one of my books. Yes, that is right--I will name a character after you. But only if you purchase one of these extremely limited, numbered copies of The Sapphire Flute. Note: The drawing has been eliminated. If you buy a book, you automatically get your name (or the name of someone you choose) in one of the books of The Wolfchild Saga.

Okay, to sum it all up, here's what you need to do:
ORDER THE SAPPHIRE FLUTE BETWEEN 8:30 PM TODAY AND 8:30 AM TOMORROW MORNING. NOTE: Offer has been extended indefinitely. It will be done with the books are gone. 14 left!

And what will you receive:
1. A NUMBERED COPY OF THE SAPPHIRE FLUTE
2. YOUR COPY PERSONALIZED HOWEVER YOU WISH
3. A SIGNED PHOTOGRAPH OF THE AUTHOR
4. THE FIRST PERSON TO ORDER GETS A 5 MINUTE PHONE CALL FROM THE AUTHOR (Already won!)
5. YOUR NAME IMMORTALIZED IN ONE OF MY BOOKS

So what say you? Is it worth it?

That is entirely up to you to decide. ;)







If you've come this far and chosen to order, e-mail me at karen AT karen-e-hoover DOT com and let me know which picture you want. You can also tell me how you want your book and picture signed, and your address so I know where to send it.

Happy Reading!

Fabulous idea, Karen. What a huge opportunity for your fans! I will help spread the word. And you have been compared to the greats. One national reviewer compared you to Terry Brooks and Orson Scott Card. Personally, I think you're a much richer writer than those guys, but that's just my opinion. :o)
