Anthony-san, if I buy these books frequently bought together how do I get the author to sign them? :)


Well, you could send 'em to me. :)

I know of one author who does the inscriptions on adhesive labels and mails them out for the owners to paste into their books. Saves the hassle and expense of mailing the books two times.

From discussions I've recently read on Baen's Bar (a publisher's forum), that seems to be a common and long-established practice.

They will no doubt be pleased to learn that their practice meets with my approbation.

That is true ss-san. I had a PM to Tony sit in my outbox for nearly a year.. Perhaps, Tony is afraid that if he opens them that pandora's monsters will escape.. lol :mrgreen:

...I had a PM to Tony sit in my outbox for nearly a year..


:shock:

Uncle 2-heads,
I think Papa surely wins the Guinness TJP record. Maybe a sticky thread to solely remind him to check PM should be made in the future .... ^_^''

I've been waiting anxiously for my books to be returned duly signed.

BTW, 子狸 has grown up, and he is free to ramble in TJP 宮殿 to relax and to communicate. He should not be kept in the cage forever. ^_^''

SS-san, I had Amazon ship the books to Tony-san and after an exchange of "contraband" he shipped the duly inscribed books to me. :)

SS-san, saying "Effingtony" in this country is usually less than complementary to someone named Tony :mrgreen:
