This is an amazing idea. I'd like to be involved next year assuming its too late for this year???

Virginia Henley

This idea is stupendous. If only my November release THE DECADENT DUKE could be promoted like this.
I have an anthology story being released on Feb. 3/09. How much would it cost for me to advertise for Valentine's?

I've decided to push books for holiday gift giving by creating an online bookstore through Amazon's aStore. It's called Cookie Monkey Bookstore and people can access it through my website: www.natashawing.com. I will also be suggesting to my blog readers that they consider books for presents this year.

Great Idea MJ. Saw you in Publisher's Lunch today. I opened a subtle hint department for readers. They tell me what they want and who should buy it for them for Xmas. I send a personal message to their friend, spouse, or relative. It works for everyone. The giver finds the perfect gift (my signed book) and the recipient gets just what the wanted. I'd rather be shouting like you are, but the whispers are working just fine.

Love it! MJ, this might be cheesy to even ask you, but would you be willing to make the code available to drop in our own preferred books? I might be able to get my local RWA chapter to do this if I put our authors in it. We'd leave your book, of course :)

Meanwhile, I'll email you to get the gif for my personal blog. Any bought book is a good bought book in my... er, book :)

And, CJ, your idea is so much fun. What a great gift to your readers and to the people in their lives that need to find a gift!

Amy @ My Friend Amy

I've set up a blog called Buy Books for the Holidays (the url is exactly that minus spaces) which is a push for book bloggers and their readers to try to buy books for everyone on their lists.

We will feature suggestions, tips, help for difficult people on your list, etc.

I'm just an independent book blogger...my day job is in adult literacy, but we're so close to having 100 people sign up for the challenge. ;)

I will try to remember to email you to ask for the pictures...we're happy to use anything and promote everything books at no cost.

Wow. What a fab idea. Wish I'd have known earlier. I'd have pushed my publisher to get on board. Best of luck with plan.

Brilliance, sheer brilliance. Doing something proactive--ever so much more rewarding than chiming in on the collective whine.

Yes, please email me the .gifs or direct me to the download.

Hi M.J.

I know, rather than waddle through fear, we need to do something to stimulate people to buy books as gifts -
