People ask all the time if they can buy autographed books from me directly. My answer is usually “No!” because I SUCK at mailing stuff out and I don’t want people to yell at me. But now, for the month of October only, my answer is: Okay, fine!
Yes, you’ll be able to order signed paperback copies of any book that is currently available! But first, a great big disclaimer:
I’M NOT EVEN GOING TO PLACE THE ORDER FOR THE COPIES OF THESE BOOKS FOR AT LEAST TWO WEEKS.
All of my events from March 2020 onward were cancelled. Therefore, especially with my recent releases, there’s been no reason for me to have extra books on hand. What am I going to do with a bunch of Autumn Bleeds Into Winter copies? I’ve already read it. (It’s quite good.) Instead of trying to estimate the demand for this offer, I’ve decided to just go with the all-caps disclaimer above, followed by another one:
TO REPEAT, YOU ARE PROBABLY ORDERING BOOKS THAT I DO NOT HAVE IN MY POSSESSION YET. AND I WILL BE GOING WITH THE SLOW SHIPPING OPTION. IF YOU’RE TRYING TO GET A PRESENT IN TIME FOR YOUR COUSIN’S BIRTHDAY ON OCTOBER 29th, THIS IS NOT THE OFFER FOR YOU.
All books are $15 each, which includes Media Mail shipping. (See Q&A for details about non-USA orders.)
Here’s how it works. Send an e-mail to JeffStrandAuthor @ gmail.com (removing spaces, obviously) with the following information.
- Which book(s) you want.
- The first name of the person I’m signing them to. (If you don’t want it personalized, just say “Flat-signed.”) If different books are being signed to different people, just make it clear who gets what.
- Your mailing address.
Then I’ll send you a PayPal invoice for $15 x the number of books you ordered.
After that, you will wait patiently until that magical day in November (POSSIBLY stretching into December, depending on demand and how long it takes my boxes of books to arrive) when I send you a tracking number.
Q: Can I order more than one copy of the same book?
A: Yes. If you want 20 flat-signed copies of My Pretties, go for it.
Q: Is this an ongoing offer?
A: Nope. On Halloween I’m going right back to being a whiner about not wanting to handle my own book orders.
Q: Can I request something specific for you to write in the book?
A: Sure, but I have veto power!
Q: What about non-USA people?
A: Yes, but the price will be higher (possibly significantly) and they won’t be mailed out until the very end of the process. What will happen is you’ll get an invoice for the books (knocked down to $13 USD each) and then a separate invoice for the exact cost of shipping sometime in the distant future.
Q: If I mail you my own copies of your books, will you sign them?
A: Yes. Obviously there’s no charge for that, but you’ll have to include a self-addressed stamped envelope for their return. E-mail me at the address above for details.
Q: What if I have other questions?
A: E-mail me at the address above.

ALSO AVAILABLE: The Leisure Books mass market editions of Pressure and Dweller. They are in reasonably good condition, but there may be some minor dings, scratches, corner crinkles, or discoloration of the paper. I can’t order more, so this is “While supplies last.” $5 each. Please specify “Leisure Edition” so I know you aren’t ordering the trade paperback of Dweller.
