Started: postal pre-orders

You are now able to pre-order Malaysian Politicians Say the Darndest Things by Maybank2u (014105120512). The first edition costs RM20 per book and I will not add extra for postage by registered mail to anywhere in Malaysia. So generous one! There is no minimum or maximum number to order.

Of course, all orders have to be made before the launch date of 16 September. After that, it will no longer be available through this method.

I shall reserve 100 copies for mail orders, and the books shall be duly posted the day before the launch. A running tally will be kept at the Comments section of this here post.

Simply let me know ( matahari.books@gmail.com ) when payment is made and where the book should be sent.

One of the Things To Do in my quest to become a publishing tycoon is to set up a company current bank account, which costs RM2,000, but until the cash comes in the personal one shall do lah.

Other updates? The final proof pages were sent to the printer two days ago. It should be done by 10 September. Then I gave Andrew of Malaysiakini the first advance media copy (of a photocopy of the manuscript). Strangely enough, no other newspaper has asked to write about it. Mwahaha.

Is there any chance of me getting an autographed one from you if I ordered it thru maybank2u?

Howsy said...

Yes, can I have my ones autographed too? :P

Amir said...

Sure thing. And since my signature isn't worth much I will throw in the autograph for free. Mwahaha.
