Bookplates!

While I will be trotting around the country a fair amount, signing anything that’s put in front of me (books, kindles, cocktail napkins, hotel bills), there are still vast swathes of America out of reach of my pen.

If you have pre-ordered a copy of The Orchid Affair and would like a signed bookplate to stick into the front of your book, let me know! This offer is good until January 20th, 2011. No restrictions apply. (At least, none that I’ve thought of just yet.)

I will be signing things in person in New York on January 20th (Launch Day!); DC, January 26; Cambridge, January 28; New Haven, February 9; and Scottsdale, February 10. Hope to see you there!

    Hi Lauren,
    I would LOVE a signed bookplate for my copy of _Orchid_! What’s the best way to get my address to you? Do you need an SASE? Thanks! Jo

  2. Lauren on January 7, 2011 at 3:29 pm

    Hi, Jo! Just email me (there’s the email form on the website). No need for a SASE! Although I apologize in advance for the odd bits of stationary I’ve been using….

    Hi Lauren,

    I would love a signed bookplate as well. I’m eagerly awaiting my Amazon order. What do I need to do? By the way, I loved the Mistletoe book. It really made me get in the mood for the holiday. Thanks for all the fun hours of reading you have given me.

    Hi, Teje! Just email me (there’s the email link here on the site) and let me know where to send the bookplate and I’ll send it off to you. So happy you enjoyed “Mistletoe”!

    Hi Lauren,
    I’ve asked my husband to buy The Orchid Affair for my birthday (Feb. 4). Might I still have a signed bookplate? Thank you for a wonderfully funny and pragmatic teacher Arabella and her good-hearted Turnip…I felt like you were telling the story of my romance! 🙂 Brilliant inclusion of Jane Austen. Thank you for that as well!

  6. Lauren on January 8, 2011 at 11:39 am

    Melissa, absolutely! Consider it an early birthday present. 🙂 Just email me and let me know where to send it.

    So glad you liked Arabella!

    Lauren – what a great idea! Would love a bookplate. Truly enjoying the Pink Carnation, unfortunately I am behind due to the paperback releases.

    Hi Lauren, I would love a bookplate, thank-you for the offer! I have had Orchid on order for quite a while now, and am so glad it will arrive soon. I do wish that writing books did not take such a lot of time. As reading them seems to go by much too quickly, and they there is another year to wait for another;-)) I keep reading them over again, which is good too! Thanks again, Susan Shaw

    I would love a bookplate for my Orchid Affair! I have had it preordered on Amazon.com for awhile, and am eagerly awaiting it its release! I recently finished Mistletoe, and am ready for more. I loved it! So much in fact that I purchased it for a friend who loves your books too! Thanks so much!

    I see you are going to Scottsdale, but not Atlanta !?! Well, I will have to take back what I said about our weather. It was 17 this morning.

  11. Tracie on January 9, 2011 at 5:02 pm

    Another Atlanta fan here! We’d love to see you down here for a book signing sometime, Lauren.

    I would love a bookplate. I pre-ordered my book a few days ago on barnes and noble. Yay for Christmas giftcards!

  13. jamie on January 9, 2011 at 11:52 pm

    I ordered my copy through Kindle iPad. Can I still have a signed book plate?

  15. Lauren on January 10, 2011 at 2:46 pm

    Absolutely! You can always stick it on the back of the iPad. : )

  16. Yvette on January 10, 2011 at 10:49 pm

    What a fun idea! The next best thing to you coming to California … OK, it’s a really few-away next-best, but still …

    Like Lindsey, I took my Christmas Barnes & Noble gift-cards over to the mall & pre-ordered the text & audio-book both.

  17. Hollidae on January 11, 2011 at 7:24 pm

    Great idea Lauren! My hubby just pre-ordered Orchid for me from Amazon the other night. I’d love a bookplate. My sister’s obsessed with Christmas puddings after reading Mistletoe!

  18. Aarthi on January 11, 2011 at 7:49 pm

    Hi Lauren, I just pre-ordered my copy of the Orchid Affair and I would love a signed bookplate for my book! I absolutely love all your books and it was great meeting you in Chicago!! Do come back and visit us here soon 🙂

  19. Joni on January 11, 2011 at 8:29 pm

    Hi Lauren!

    I just pre-ordered my copy of Orchid and would love a signed bookplate! It will make the beginning of the semester all that more bearable! 🙂 You have many fans in the Youngstown State University History Dept.

  20. Cait on January 12, 2011 at 2:35 pm

    Lauren,

    I just received my bookplate and am so excited. I saw the return address and did a little jump for joy. My 9 month old daughter thought it was funny and started bouncing with me.By the way, I think the name Madeleine would a PERFECT name for a french spy. Thank you for the bookplate!

  21. Lauren on January 12, 2011 at 2:43 pm

    Cait, that’s so cute!

  22. Amy B. on January 15, 2011 at 7:17 pm

    Hi Lauren!

    I just pre-ordered my copy of Orchid and can not wait to get it in the mail! I love your books! I am always looking forward to the next one! I can’t wait to see what happens in this one! I would love a bookplate to go with my book!

  23. Lauren Willig on January 16, 2011 at 12:46 pm

    Thanks, Amy! I’m so glad you’ve loved the books. Just email me at [email protected] and let me know where to send it, and I’ll pop a bookplate in the mail to you.
