Annie’s Ghosts: The 2010 Holiday Gift and Giveaway Edition

I am making good on a promise.

Several times over the past year, while signing copies of Annie’s Ghosts at events, readers have enthused, “This book would make a great holiday gift for someone in my family.”

Then, invariably, they would sigh and say something like, “But I haven’t decided which family member, and part of the fun would be having it inscribed.”

I suppose I could have helped them with their dilemma. I could have generously said, “Buy several – I'll inscribe them all!" But I’m still getting in touch with my inner marketer.

One night, at a book talk in California, I had a better idea – or, at least, an unpressured one. “Well, if email me your address, I’ll send you a bookplate with an inscription and my autograph,” I proposed. “Postage on me.”

I’ve now provided several dozen such bookplates to gift-giving readers. So here’s my offer for the 2010 holidays: If you email me a request with your address, I’ll send you an inscribed bookplate for that gift copy or for the one you bought for yourself. Please let me know if you’d like a specific inscription, or whether you want me to create one, or whether you just want a signature. Send the email to

Also: As a way of thanking the many, many readers who have helped spread the word about Annie’s Ghosts, I’m giving away two signed hardcover copies for the holidays. Just send an email to by December 15, or use the the email form at The two winners will be randomly selected. If you use the email form at the website, please be sure to include your email address in the space provided. Otherwise, I won't know how to contact you if you win.

(As they say, no purchase is necessary. But please feel free to visit the Steve Luxenberg author page on Facebook, and join the ranks of those who "like" it. You can click here to get there. The more the merrier!)

Happy holidays, and here’s hoping that you find new books to captivate you in 2011.
