The limited edition bookplates came in the mail today and I signed all ten billion* of them.
Bookplates aren’t plates. They are stickers for books. Stickers are rad. And if you put a sticker in my book it technically makes it a sticker book. My seven-year-old self is thrilled.
A special, limited edition signed bookplate can be shipped to you for free if you pre-order my book! (U.S. addresses only though. Sad face.)
The bookplate looks like this:
(Except the ©2013, CrappyPictures.com won’t be there and instead it will have my signature.)
Yes. It is a picture of me hiding in the bathroom and sitting on the toilet. Reading. Possibly reading my own book which is actually the only embarrassing part about all of this. I figured maybe you’ll read my book in there too so we can hang out together. In our bathroom clubhouse.
So how do you get one? Simple!
Pre-order my book before March 26th.
Then fill out this form.
I know several of you have already pre-ordered and YES you can have one! Just fill out the form.
Did you order more than one book? Then fill out the form more than once.
Did you order an electronic version (Kindle, Nook, etc) YES you can have one! Hey, fill out the form!
Your limited edition, signed bookplate will be sent to you in 3-4 weeks.

A Note About Pre-Orders
What is a pre-order? You are simply buying the book like normal…it is just that it won’t ship until March 26th.
Why do I keep begging you to pre-order? Because it makes a huge difference to the author. (Hi. That’d be me.) Pre-order sales determine everything from how many books are printed, if and where I’m sent on a book tour and which stores carry my book. Pre-order sales also help my chances of getting on one of the bestseller lists. If I sell 2342 books via pre-orders in the weeks leading up to the book release, all 2342 books are counted as being sold during that first week after release. So the book starts off with a crowd of people reading it rather than a nervous me going “Hello? Is anybody out there?” while I bite my nails until my fingers bleed. Bad habit.
It’s huge. So throw me a bone. I’m scared shitless about all of this.
Actually, I don’t want a bone. Instead, you could pre-order and then sign up to receive your signed bookplate. That would make my day.
*It wasn’t ten billion. But I didn’t count.
I even bought new pens to sign with. I spent $4.93. Because I care. No really, the pens I had at home were all smeary and didn’t work.
