Let’s Get Philosophical about Holiday Book Promotions (Or: You Give, I Give, Jack)

It's Black Friday!

Black Friday is one of my favorite holidays. I know, there is something wrong with me.


My sister and I used to wake up in the middle of the night for a mad dash of shopping and bonding, we would get all our holiday shopping done in one fell swoop, and then we'd wrap it up with the clink of a peppermint mocha--all before most of the world had even gotten out of bed.

Besides, as a firm believer in celebrating one holiday at a time, Black Friday is the official start of the winter holiday season! The decorations, the music, the food, the love--it all starts on Black Friday.

And God knows, this country desperately needs to spread love right now.

As an author, I am biased, but I believe deeply in books' power to spread empathy, understanding and wonder in this world.

So I've got a fun little holiday initiative to share with you--my own little way of passing forward a little much-needed cheer.

Here's how it goes:

  1. Gift wrapping!
    I have some pretty, shiny, non-denominational holiday wrap right here, and I'm dying to use it. Buy Mud for a loved one through this form on my website between today and December 24, and I will personally gift wrap it for you. I'll even do a little ribbon bow.

    And yes, it is safe to assume that I am wearing my Santa hat while I wrap your gift.

  2. Signed, sealed and personalized!
    I will sign every copy of Mud ordered through my website form and address it to the person you specify. If you have a special message you want included, I'll do that too! Just include it in your order notes.
  3. Give one, get one!
    Because it gives me joy to get my book in your hands. So when you order one copy of Mud for a loved one, you can order a second copy for yourself (or a second loved one) for 50% off. That means your second hard cover is $12.49, or your second paperback is just $7.99.
  4. You give, I give, Jack!
    This is the best part of all. For every copy of Mud purchased between now and December 24, I will donate a dollar to the Florida Writers Foundation.Every hard cover. Every paperback. Every ebook. No matter where you buy it--just email your receipt to hello@ejwenstrom.com.

    The Florida Writers Foundation promotes literacy by enhancing  writing skills in children and adults. To accomplish this goal, it partners with existing programs and initiatives as well as  developing programs of its own.

P.S.--This is just the start. I'm working with a number of other speculative fiction authors to bring you an awesome holiday book collection giveaway in December--along with fun graphics, quotes and teasers from the existing and soon-to-come Chronicles of the Third Realm War universe.
