How's This For an Offer?

Catherine Ryan Hyde

I’ve given away a lot of books on this blog.  But I’m hoping this giveaway will take the prize.

At the end of this month, I’m clearing out a paid storage space which is 75% full of brand-new-in-the-carton rare first edition hardcovers of my first two books, Funerals for Horses and Earthquake Weather.  It just doesn’t make sense to keep paying to store them.

Now.  Here’s the only problem.  There are more than I can fit in my garage.  Some may go to fulfillment sellers, and that’s all well and good.  But what about my loyal readers?

Here’s my Brainstorm.  Here’s the best offer I can make to my loyal readers:

Send me a self-addressed, padded mailbag.  It will need to have enough postage to cover 2 pounds, 2 ounces of books (plus the bag itself) from my zip code to yours.  You might want to put your own address as both the “to” and “from” on the mailbag, because if you make a postage mistake, it’ll come back to you instead of me.

Send it to me at P.O. Box 552, Cambria, CA 93428.

And I will send you a signed first edition of both books.

Why not?  Who’s more important than my readers?  I have more of these than I can really use or store, and who deserves them more than you?

You can learn a lot more about these titles by checking their book pages.  Then again, they’re rare signed first editions, and they’re free.  So that might be all you need to know right there.
