Give them Robin Hood for Christmas

Posted on

I know it’s a bit early to start getting all Christmassy, but I thought I would post this now (in mid-November) so you can have a think about it and still have time to get back to me if you want to do it. Here’s the idea:

Give someone a signed copy of one or more of my books for Christmas!

If you like the Outlaw Chronicles series, and want to spread the word, don’t lend your friend a dog-eared, grubby copy of Outlaw or Grail Knight, with the pages turned down to mark the place you stopped reading and ketchup spilled on the cover – buy them a nice, shiny, brand new copy signed by the author himself (me!) with a suitably jolly festive message inside.

Hot-diggity – I expect you’re exclaiming to yourself – what a splendid idea! But how much would this superb, once-in-a-lifetime, treasure-it-forever gift cost?

Well, not all that much, actually, considering that I have to buy the books, sign them and then schlep to the post office, queue for half an hour, buy the stamp and packaging and send them off to you. Not much at all. I could send you a signed hardback copy of Grail Knight for a very reasonable £25, P&P and everything included, and for one of the paperbacks (Outlaw, Holy Warrior, King’s Man or Warlord) it would set you back a measly £17.50.

Have a think about it, and if you want to make a friend or relative Robin Hood-happy this Christmas, send me an email (go to the contact bit on this website) and we’ll take it from there.

Sadly, this offer only applies to residents of the UK. I can’t accommodate my US or other foreign readers this time around. Sorry.

Here’s wishing you all an early Happy Christmas!

    Hello Angus,
    I would like to take you up on your offer of a signed book for Christmas and order the four paperbacks and Grail Knight hardback. Rather than an inscription with a Christmas message would it be possible to sign and line the books. In Holy Warrior and King’s Man I would like the verse that Alan wrote for the King to remind him of the debt owed to Robin. In the other three anything relating to archery or battle, perhaps mentioning some of the main characters, especially Alan, Robin and Hanno. I understand that this is a lot to ask but I would be extremely grateful if you could do this for me.
    If this is acceptable please let me know how you would like payment. I have a Paypal account.
    Incidentally I am a member of North Lakes Field Archers Club in Penrith, Cumbria and spend most weekends travelling around the country to outdoor forest shoots, a wonderful hobby.
    With kindest regards,
    Phil Nelson.
