I have a book deal going on but i have had two orders and no one wrote about the wanting any of the free book that they can pick out for the deal.

First time i wrote the person and told her that i had a book deal going on.

Second time i have not wrote yet, since i have posted on bazaar that i have a book deal going on.

Should i write to the people ordering from me about the book deal or just leave it alone.

What to do ??????

As you can see i do have it posted on my signature.

It is at your discretion.  In the past when I was running deals & received a FIFO order, I would PM the person to see if they wanted a free selection.  I would put a time limit on the notice, like please reply by  xxx date with your free selection, if i do not hear from you by then, i will mail this selection only to you.  or something to that affect, my brain is not working properly through this flu to make the words pretty :)

I agree with Melissa, that's what I do, PM the person making them aware of the deal asking them to contact me within 24 hours, giving them a time and date (please contact me by 8:30 am EST, February 5th. If I don't hear from you I will mail the book you requested).

Thanks i just did that.

I also posted that they deal is valid if it's through bazaar, like that i don't have to be pm'ng all the time to ask if they are interested in a free book.

Hope it don't sound rude.

 She just responded back to me, well both of them did and i did give them the deal.

Thanks

Doesn't sound rude at all.  Like I said, at your discretion.  The person ordering may not even be familiar with the forums & deals and was just ordering from the system and yours was next.  My motivation when I was doing deals was more to get rid of books than to obtain credits so I was always content to try to push another book off on someone :)
