I’ve been sitting here for an hour trying to find a way to write this post that doesn’t sound sales-y, cheesy or annoying. It’s not easy. So I’m not going to dress this up — here’s what I’m trying to say: if you have a treasured woman in your life and you’re wondering what to buy her for Xmas, can i humbly suggest my book, This I Know? As an author it’s important to promote your own books at this time of year but, to be honest, it’s more than that — I’d love for This I Know to to be gifted into the hands of women who need her. Women who are searching for themselves, yearning for a creative life, wondering if they are the only ones feeling the way they do. I shared my heart in the book because I wanted other women to feel less alone, so if you know a soulsister who might need a gentle read to take her into the new year, think of me and my wee book :)

There’s something else, too. Many authors sell copies of their own book but this was something i decided not to do as I felt the cost of the book + shipping from the UK (which isn’t cheap) didn’t make for a great deal. So, while I can’t offer signed copies of the book to give as gifts, I’ve come up with something just as lovely…

I have a small stack of Polaroid postcards that are just begging to be personalised and used as bookmarks. I’d love to send one to you to tuck inside the book before you wrap it, so here’s the plan:

1. buy a copy (or two!) of This I Know to gift to a friend(s)

2. send me a copy of the receipt by email (forward me the email invoice or photograph your receipt) with the subject line “POSTCARD!” — mail to: nita [at] susannahconway.com

3. make sure you also include in the email:
— the name of the person who’s receiving the book so I can personalise the message on the postcard (if you bought 2 books I’ll send 2 postcards, etc)
— your mailing address

4. wait for the mailman to deliver the card(s)!


— I’ll cover the cost of the postage for all the cards (they’ll be sent in envelopes to protect them)
— deadline for emailing me the copy of your receipt is THURSDAY DECEMBER 6th. All postcards will be sent on Saturday 8th — any later than that and you won’t get them in time for Xmas
— the postcards will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis until I run out of cards :) I apologise in advance if the cards go quickly and you don’t get one (on the other hand, maybe no one will want them… you never know!)
— to make it fair this offer is only for books purchased on or after today’s date (November 26th)

Looking forward to sending out some love notes xo
