If you’re out buying your Christmas presents from local businesses tonight in support of Small Business Saturday — a new “shopping holiday” nestled in there snugly between Black Friday and Cyber Monday — then I’m glad to hear it. I think it’s an excellent idea. (Even if it’s an idea that American Express kinda sorta stole from the 3/50 Project.)
Anyway, while you’re finding the right gifts for your friends and loved ones, I would like to suggest you take a moment to consider buying something from the smallest business you know. Namely, me.
I know a lot of the regular readers of this blog already own a copy of my first self-published collection of horror stories, “Slices,” and you’ve given me great feedback and reviews for it. Well, have you thought about buying a copy for the discriminating reader on your shopping list?
If you have, this weekend’s a great time to do it. Right now, you can buy a copy of “Slices” directly from the printer, and if you use this coupon code when you check out:
…. You’ll get your copy for just $8.95, instead of its usual price of $12.95! That’s like four dollars off or something!
This sale will run through Monday, November 26th. (It may stretch into the early hours of Tuesday morning, but after that, that coupon code will be deader than corduroy.)
So grab a copy for Cousin Bob now. Be sure to modestly brag about how cool and ahead of your time you are for buying books from independent writers. He’ll thank you for it. Alternately, he might start giving you a wide berth at family reunions. That might be good, too.
