I've been looking into doing a few of these each month.

The idea would be we'd offer say 20 a month, Simon would autograph them and add a dedication if you'd like it for a gift for a birthday or Christmas present. The cost for the books would be RRP (or less if we can).

My concern is that most of the membership (so far) is from the US and shipping isn't cheap from the UK.

I've just sent a copy of the new edition of Drinking Midnight Wine and the post office changed £7 (that's, I think about $13 US). Which is more than the cost of a paperback !

Other way of sending (DHL, UPS etc) would charge much more.

The other issue is that the post office over here doesn't have a tracking system or any way to have it signed for once it gets to the US (why you ask? I'm told that they used to but so much got lost it was costing them too much, so rather than fix it they simply stopped the service !).

I throw the idea open to you guys. What do you think ?

Right then.

The first batch of 20 books will be going up on the site at the end of next week.

They'll be 5 copies of 4 titles, I'll post a list and registered members of the site can pm me with which they'd like and if they'd like a dedication.

I'll try to include shipping costs within the UK and to the US, if you live elsewhere let me know and I'll find the best price I can.

When they're gone, they're gone (until next month!).

We should have a few at release, but that's looking like Jan 2012 unless the publisher changes things (always a possibly).

I'll post something when I know more. . .
