I’m afraid I rarely have opportunities to sign copies of my translated books for my foreign readers but now there is a way to get my autograph on your copy of my book: I ordered some business cards with the cover of my brand new Finnish novel (Väärän kissan päivä, or in English, The Day of a Wrong Cat) on the other side and my photo and a place for a personalized autograph on the other, and would like to send them to the book bloggers of the world who have written blog posts about my translated works. If you would like to have a signed business card you could attach to your copy of the book (written by me, naturally, otherwise it would’t make much sense, would it), please ask for one and I’ll send it to you.
If you would like to host a little giveaway and forward literary business cards signed by me to the readers of your blog, you can have 1 – 9 cards for that purpose.
So, if you are a blook blogger and you have written a blog post about some of my translated works and if you are interested in having some of these cards, this is how it happens:
- Tweet a link to your blog post and tag me to it – @paziij – and send me a private message and tell me your name and address and the number of cards you would like to have (and to whom would you like me to address the signature)
- post the link to your blog post on my official Facebook page – https://www.facebook.com/kirjailijapij/ – and send me a message to my Facebook Inbox.
Unfortunately I only have a limited number of those cards for now but at least the first 20 book bloggers will get their signed literary business cards!
