Announcing my soon-to-be published book, "Teatime Tales"!!!
Friends, I have some exciting news today! As many of you are aware, I like to have a special year-long project on this blog that I present on Saturdays. I've reviewed tea books, made tea sandwiches, shared tearoom postcards, and this year, I've been writing bits of fiction I call "Teatime Tales" each Saturday. To my everlasting delight, several of you have asked that I compile these short stories into a book.
Anyhoo, I've talked to a publisher and yes, I will finish writing these stories soon and you can go ahead and pre-order the book now. In fact, for those of you who've so generously welcomed my little stories on Saturdays, I've taken the liberty of going ahead and ordering you three copies each. I figure that will give you one to keep and two to give as Christmas gifts. Don't worry about paying now. I've got all your e-mail addresses on file and will invoice you when the books arrive.
The great thing is, these books will be leather-bound! Isn't that cool, that these little tea-inspired stories can now be bound in leather and read for years to come? I found a company that will print them for just $99.95 each, and again, I've gone ahead and ordered several copies for those of you who've been commenting on the stories, just to be sure you don't miss out on this great opportunity.
Of course anyone is welcome to order, but only regular visitors to this blog will get the special $99.95 price. For everyone else, the price will be $125 per book. I'll invoice you as soon as the books arrive, so for most of you, that will be $299.85. What a deal!
If anyone else would like to get in on this special offer, feel free to shoot me an email at email@example.com. Thanks, and have a great day!
P.S. And because there's always that ONE person who gets taken in ... Happy April Fool's Day! I'm really not printing a book that will sell for $99.95. I do think I'll probably compile my little tea stories into a book by the end of the year, since some of you have asked, but it will definitely be a normally priced book—and I would never automatically order three copies for anyone!
