I love a bit of subterfuge!
I'm blessed with lots of wonderful, regular clients, every one of them a joy to work with. I mean that. I hear other small businesses moaning about customers, but I've never had to moan about a single one!
And some are sneaky, in the best possible way!
Cue Bill. Bill & Shiona have bought quite a few books from me. Some 'off the shelf', some commissioned...all gifts...until now!
Sneaky, sneaky, very sneaky! I love it!
(as an aside, I always wish people would order books FOR the people who GIVE them one - it's a sure sign they'd appreciate one!)
I don't question every order that comes in - in fact, I almost never do...I fold words exactly as they're typed in...but when I'm working with regulars, I kind of have a feel for what they tend to choose, and don't mind following up if I feel it's prudent. Bill did indeed prefer "Shiona", so I'm glad I asked.
Five star reviews make me beam from ear to ear! Not only do I appreciate every person who takes a minute to write one (THANK YOU if you have), but it's another installment in the trust bank, for potential customers who are swithering about placing their first order ♥ Means so, so much.
It was Shiona's big day a couple of days ago, and I was thrilled to receive the following:
So that's the condensed story of how Shiona got her very own book!
And you know how it all began?
Bill & Shiona both receive #NoBooksNews direct to their inboxes - which you can subscribe to HERE (was that slick, or WHAT!? hahah)
