When you write a book for a publisher it’s written into your contract that you will receive a certain number of author’s copies of your book — usually about 10 (if you want more you can buy them at a discounted price). Today my very first box of author’s copies arrived — our Pretty Polaroid Notecards are already in shops and available online, and this morning a box of 10 packs were delivered by the UPS man. The thing about writing a book is it takes soooooo looooong for the finished paper-and-stitching book to be in your hands — it’s like waiting for Christmas when you’re six-years-old. But even though these sweet little cards aren’t the finished book, they sure are lovely to receive :) Jen, Amanda and I put a lot of sweat and love into our Polaroid projects, and it’s so wonderful to start seeing the results.
So, i have one pack for my mum, one for my sister, one that i’m going to keep in a special box for Noah to have when he’s older (he’ll be getting copies of all my books too!)…. and I have two packs to send to two of YOU!
If you’d like to win one of the two packs — i’m happy to send them anywhere in the world — simply leave a comment on this post sharing three things you like about yourself (i’m serious — you have to do this!). I’ll draw/announce the two winners on Friday xo
Okay, I’ll go first:
1. I like how I see the world through my camera.
2. I like how I’m able to make people laugh and put them at ease.
3. I like that I’m not afraid to dig deeper into the heavy questions…. I like that I’m so thoughtful.
Now it’s your turn…
