Personalised cards for Christmas

I can’t start thinking about Christmas until two family birthdays are out of the way, which means it is all a bit of a rush during the second half of December. But if you’re a Christmas planner you might like to know about a little free gift I’m offering to people who buy one or more of my books for Christmas.

Emphemera 1If you buy a copy of Swimming Lessons, or Our Endless Numbered Days for someone this Christmas drop me a message, and I’ll post you a personalised and signed card for you to include with the book. And if you’re buying Swimming Lessons, since it’s about things that people leave behind in books, I’ll also send you a piece of ephemera to include as well.

This offer is available worldwide, and won’t cost you thing (apart from the cost of the book of course, which you will need to buy yourself either online or from your local book shop). I’m happy to include cards for each book you buy, and of course, you can buy it for yourself.

So if you’d like me to post you a signed card, contact me here with which book, or books you’re buying, the name of the recipient, and your postal address.



Christmas Offer


Me and a few of my writerly friends have an offer for you this Christmas. Buy a copy of one of our books (for yourself or a friend) and we’ll post you a personalised card to include with it. My offer extends worldwide, but for the others listed below, you might need to check with them whether they are happy to post a card outside of their home country.

Clicking on the link will take you either to the author’s website or some other means of contacting them, so that you can ask them for your card. Happy reading!
