Autographed books available for the 2014 Holiday Christmas Season

Holiday Homer Hickam Newsletter
November, 2014
For description of each book, go to the BOOKS page on Homer's website and click on each cover. 

Dear Friends and Readers,  
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all our friends and readers! Normally, we send along a newsy, chatty newsletter for the holidays and we promise to produce one of those the first minute we get the chance. But right now, I am deep into my next book, a family epic tentatively titled Carrying Albert Home (which stars my parents and a very special alligator.) It will be published in Fall of 2015.  And Linda is covered up with letters from fans that need answering. As for our cats, they're assigned to the bookstore shipping department and are busy at this very moment shredding wrapping paper and boxes in preparation for the upcoming gift sales of my books!

This missive therefore is being sent entirely to apprise you of the fantastic deal that my wife Linda's little KnowInk bookstore is offering for your holiday gift-giving pleasure. For you, our loyal newsletter subscribers, from now until December 21, she is reducing the price of every one of my books by 10%, each autographed and inscribed according to your instructions.

These have proved to be fantastically good surprise gifts for folks who enjoy good books or have a connection to my life in the coalfields and beyond! To figure out how to order these very special, valuable, and collectible books, just go to the list of books below and subtract 10% from each price listed.  

Shipping costs, of course, remain the same, but note that up to 6 books fit in the medium priority box and Linda will only charge you $11 if your books fit, which is actually less than the cost of shipping it.
So to get your order in, all you have to do is let Linda know what books you want by emailing her at LTHickam@homerhickam.com. The DVD of October Sky is also available with the 10% reduction in price. Easy? You bet! So get your orders in early, please. There are limited quantities available so do not wait until the last minute and be disappointed!
Happy Holidays to all of you.  
May there be Peace on Earth.
                                                            Homer Hickam
