Okay everyone, the big day is drawing near and you still want to get a few more gifts but don’t know what to buy, or don’t want to go out into the stores which have already pulled down half of their displays and are lining up Spring stuff. What to do, what to do… how about giving someone a good book to read on their Kindle, Nook, or on their computer? It’s fast, easy, and you can have it delivered on Christmas Day and know it will arrive on time…
Didn’t know you could do this? Neither did I for the longest time. I only found out a couple of years ago when Allan and I released “The Vampyre Blogs – Coming Home”. We were rewarding some of our beta-readers with a free copy of the finished product in whatever form they wished (trade paperback, Kindle, PDF). Most requested a signed trade paperback, but a couple asked for the Kindle version.
So we headed over to Amazon, got into my account, and pulled up “The Vampyre Blogs – Coming Home”. Once there we discovered the “Give As A Gift” button and clicked it. From there we were taken to another screen which asked us to sign into our Amazon account, which we did. From there we were taken to a final screen
This screen asked only for the e-mail address of the recipient we were sending this book to AND what day we wanted it delivered. It was the option of a delivery date that really caught my eye. Now I had a way of getting a copy of one of my books into someone’s hands right on Christmas, their birthday, you name it.
Now some of you may have known about all this, but for those who didn’t you now have more options when it comes to shopping for gifts. I personally love the idea of having a book to place in someone’s ‘Cyber Stocking’.
So for anyone who didn’t know about this option, now you do. And the best part is you can do that kind of shopping right now. The e-book will not arrive before the date you set.
Of course, being an author I’m going to shamelessly promote my books by providing links below where all my books are listed and you can choose whichever one(s) you’d like to gift to the readers in your life.
