I woke up this morning and had this email in my inbox:

 

While surfing through LibraryThing (I really enjoy that site!), I noticed that you, as well as fifteen other readers, were interested in swapping someone for Nefertiti. Would you like me to send you a signed copy? I've never done this before, but as a new author I'm always interested in building a readership - assuming you like the book, of course, and I think you will!

 

If you email me at xxx with your address(which I promise not to share - or spam :) I'd be more than happy to send you a copy. And then, if you have a time and are so inclined to post a review of what you thought - on Amazon, or B&N - that would be fantastic. Of course, if reviews aren't your thing, I understand (I dread writing reviews!), and I simply hope you enjoy the book ;]

 

Best Wishes, Michelle Moran  

 

Talk about happy! I have been on the WL for this book for months, and have been bugging Michelle (lilynlilac)-- not the author Michelle--  for her copy! Now I don't have to take hers and I can finally get off the darned wishlist!!!

Awesome!!  I just received a notice that I have finally come up for a copy from the library . . . I may have to put everything else down to read it. 

I'd love to hear what you think about this one.

Did anyone buy this book new? I'm wondering it the bookmark comes with it if you buy it in a certain place. I'm going to buy a new copy of this for my niece and since she collects bookmarks, I'd love to get her one with the book. Maybe it would be included if I bought the book directly from the publisher's website???

I got one! I went to Books A Million last night and asked about them and the girl said they got some in with a promotional package, but she wasn't sure if there were any left. She went and looked and found one. The girl also told me that they get tons of promotional bookmarks in, but they don't sit them out for the customers because BAM sells bookmarks. They don't want to lose a sale by someone getting a free bookmark. That is just crappy!

Well, at least, my niece will be happy with her book and bookmark. I went ahead and wrapped the book up last night so that I won't be tempted to read it!

Awesome Valli! If I hadn't already wrapped up that package of DVDs I would have included a bookmark in it!
