My wonderful and talented wife has a special offer on. Drop me a line if you'd like to take advantage of it:

Hello, all. I am writing to let you know that for a limited time, I will be selling signed copies of my 2006 book Hannus, for only $10(plus $3 for shipping within Canada) -- over 50% off the cover price($23). Hannus (published by Pedlar Press and stunningly designed by Zab of Zab design) is a genre-defying book, consisting of poems, prose pieces, interviews, newspaper clippings, photographs, dramatic monologues, and more about the life of my great-grandmother, Finnish suffragist Ida Hannus. The book covers 50 years of Ida's life, from her BC beginnings in the Finnish colony of Sointula to her personal and political life in Vancouver. The book has been very well received and was a finalist for both a BC book prize and the Edna Staebler Award for Creative Non-Fiction.

Moreover, I am also offering a joint sale: buy Hannus and get $5 off your purchase of my brand-new kids ballad picture book Anything But Hank! Anything But Hank (Biblioasis) is co-written by Zachariah Wells and illustrated by the fantastic Nova Scotia illustrator Eric Orchard. Regular price is $19.95, but for this package deal, I will only charge $25 for the 2 books (plus a $6 shipping fee within Canada).

I will be travelling for the month of December, so if you are interested in taking advantage of this deal for holiday gifts, please respond to this email this month so I can send you the book(s) as soon as possible.

I always was a sucker for a hard sell. Bring me a couple of Hannuses when you come (I've already got a carton of Hanks!).
