Attention, readers of Pirates of the Caribbean: The Price of Freedom.

Do you have your copy of The Price of Freedom yet? If you have the novel, or have ordered it, and would like it AUTOGRAPHED, I’d be happy to do that for you. Of course, it’s a big book, and expensive to ship, so instead you might want to take advantage of the FREE, collector-edition bookplates Disney supplied me with for this book. They are gorgeous. They show the infamous skull that’s the back cover of the book, against a background of blue ocean and endless sky. The skull depicted is the one used in “On Stranger Tides.”

The bookplates are about four inches high, by three inches wide. They fit perfectly below the title of the book on the first title page. I sign them in red ink, which shows up very nicely, and I’m happy to personalize them.

When you get your bookplate, all you have to do is carefully peel off the back, and it will stick into your book, and hey! You have a personally autographed book! Neat, huh?

To receive your copy of the bookplate, send a SASE (stamped, self-addressed envelope) with instructions as to who you want it signed to, and any special message, such as “Congratulations, Graduate!” or “Happy Birthday” — you get the idea.

Send the request, with the SASE, to: Ann Crispin, P.O. Box 827, Bryantown, MD 20617-0827.

People keep asking me if there are bookplates available, and Disney has generously provided me with more. So send that SASE and have a personalized, autographed collector edition book. I’ve signed less than 500 bookplates, where I’m approaching 1000 autographed copies of the actual book…so, in a way, the bookplates are more of a collector’s item!

As always, if anyone would like to comment on the book, or ask questions, go for it! Just put a spoiler warning before typing anything that’s a major plot revelation, okay?
