I completely suck at remembering anniversaries. It’s to the point that (*warning: stereotype ahead*) I could really be the man in the relationship, and I’m embarrassed to admit that in the 10+ years my husband and I have been together, it’s happened more than once: he shows up with a card, and I show up with an “Oh, shit” face.
I’m trying to get better. I know it is a major fault of mine that I am just bad with dates all around: birthdays (mine included), other people’s anniversaries…it goes on and on. (Can’t we just say it’s because I’m so freaking Zen-like that I just live in the moment, unaffected by the anxiety-inducing future? Don’t you roll your third eye at me, I saw that.) So it’s no surprise that it didn’t dawn on me until days after April 5th why the date sounded so familiar. It’s because it was the one year anniversary of my book launch party! I can’t believe it’s been a year already. And of course, I was late with my gift to you.
But it’s better late than never to give a gift, right? Can we pretend this is me showing up on your doorstep with an “I’m sorry” card, my best puppy dog eyes, and a bouquet of flowers?
Back to my gift! Over the last couple of weeks I’ve had some requests from those who messaged me and said they wanted to purchase a copy of my book for a friend who recently got engaged, but they wanted to send them a signed copy. Could this be arranged? Hell, yes! First of all, because it makes me feel so freaking special, and secondly, well, because it’s just a pretty awesome gift if I do say so myself. So, if you want to do the same for someone you know who just became engaged, and want to make said someone laugh her ass off while helping her plan her wedding in a smart, savvy, realistic way, a signed copy of my book is the way to go. I promise, she will find it useful!
AND, since I am late with anniversaries and operating on pure guilt, I am not only offering 20% off through the entire month of May, but I will even ship it back to you or directly to your friend, for free! This is in honor of both wedding season and Cinco de Mayo (because when tequila is nearby, there is always reason to celebrate). But note: you MUST order it from the link below in order to get the discount. You can order it from Amazon if you prefer and still have it shipped to me and I’ll sign it and ship it out, but since I have zero control over Amazon’s discounts, I would not be able to offer you the 20% off. I assure you my estore is safe, so take advantage of the discount!
Here’s how we’ll do it: When ordering the book (instructions below), for the shipping address, you’ll put my PO Box that I will provide. This way, it ships directly to me. I’ll sign it, and I’ll mail it out to the recipient (or back to you, whichever you prefer) at no additional charge. Because I’m generous like that. (See what happens to me when tequila is involved?)
All you have to do is message me at: email@example.com and let me know you’re interested, and I will provide you with my PO Box so you can ship the book. I’ll also need you to tell me where you want me to ship it back to once it’s signed, and who I should sign it for. That’s it!
So, to recap:
- email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
- tell me who you want me to sign the book for
- tell me the address where you want it shipped (free of charge)
- purchase it here using the 20% off discount code ‘XZD9SLDT’, and have it shipped to me at the PO Box I send you in the email
That’s it!! I’m looking forward to helping you look like a rock star friend by giving the funniest/sassiest/most helpful gift that your bestie /niece/daughter/coworker will receive for her wedding!
