Every year, I try to have something to give to you, the reader, at signings and such as a thank you for coming out to see me, and because I know that not everyone can get to the few places that I go, I like to make them available for a short time to everyone for the price of a Self Addressed Stamped Envelope. (SASE) It's a challenge to find something that is small enough to slip into a pocket, light enough to mail for the price of a stamp, and cheap enough to give away--and still actually relate to the book. This year, Guy and I decided to make up a replica of Peri Reed's glass-technology phone.
Tim and I will have these at the signings, but to get yours without all the fuss, send me a SASE (self-addressed stamped envelope)
A standard business-size envelope will do.
If you are mailing me from outside of the US, don't put a stamp on your return envelope. Tim and I will provide them because the US postal service makes International Reply Coupons too hard to understand and use.
Mail your SASE to me at:
The Drafter freebie
PO Box 498
Dexter, MI 48130
I've got a great post on how to make a SASE if you've never sent one. Click here to see how.
If you mail me a SASE and don't get anything back . . .
We occasionally have issues with the SASEs. If you send us one and didn't get your "glass phone," there are a couple of possible explanations.
If you used shiny/metallic ink, the post office can't easily read it, and they won't deliver.
If you used a return address label with tiny or too flowery print for the post office to read, they will not deliver it.
If you failed to put return postage on the SASE envelope, it will not be delivered. (International SASE's, we will provide postage, but not domestic.)
If you put your address in the wrong spot, it won't be delivered.
If you were the unlucky sacrifice to the post office gods and their machines ate your letter. -- Sometimes, they just go missing.
