OCC On-line Auction A Success In Australia!

October 6, 2007 by in category Archives

Congratulations Jueligh!!! Please let us know how your event works out. Now a message from Jueligh…

Thanks for mailing the shirt so quickly. I’ll let you know when it arrives and will be sure to leave positive feedback when it does. It will be a fun addition to my personal book collection. I have some lovely signed first editions by one of the authors and books by three or four others on the shelves at home. A signed tee-shirt by so many wonderful authors will definitely be a talking point! Looking at the list of authors I confess to only having read books just under a dozen or so of those listed. I work for a large metropolitan library district so thankfully I recognize most of the authors. I’m now going to set about to read at least one book by each of the authors who have signed the shirt. I’m also going see about using the shirt at work as part of a display over the coming summer months and challenge our patrons to do the same, to read at least one book by each author on the shirt. It could make for a nice summer adult reading challenge and a great way to introduce alot of patrons to authors they may not have otherwise considered reading!

Thank you so much for such a unique auction.
Kind regards,

Message from The Reader

October 6, 2007 by in category Archives tagged as

Hello authors, this is The Reader. So, what have you written for me
this month? Let me tell you a secret. There is a reader out there,
probably me, who is waiting for your next book. Maybe I can’t
remember youf name, I can’t ask for you, but when I see it…yeah. And
I’m looking for a book to scratch that itch that I just can’t reach
with any other book. The one that says it just a little bit different.

Sometimes, I think I’m forgotten. Oh, I know authors are out there
trawling the internet for me. But frankly that makes me feel like a
shrimp. I don’t mean to dis you, or the whole idea of advertising and
reaching out and so on. I just like the idea that someone is writing
just for me. Me. Lonely. Tired. Wanting to know what it feels like to
be beautiful, desired. Today, experiencing a win, a thrill after the
cat threw up all over the new carpet, and I lost the file at work and
missed a deadline. You know – just make me feel good.

Do you ever think about me?
