so many folks have been writing to me saying something along the lines of this –
you: hey baker!!! yes you! gimme a copy of your book, i wanna get it before it’s out and take a good hard look and maybe even review it.
me: ummm, i’m not sure i can do that, the book’s not out yet, i can’t just go around giving everyone a copy who asks for one, ya know? but i’ve got an idea – just order the book now, and it’ll get to you as soon as possible!
you: but i want it NOW!! come ooooooooooon i want a sneak peak of that sucker.
me: hmm, okay, here ya go…
me: hah hah, no way!! but nick & kyle can take a look at it. aren’t they so cute? i gave them a copy to look at, and next thing you know they were doing stuff like this.
you: oh come on, don’t be such a jerk, i want that book NOW.
me: ya know what my ol’ buddy Mick used to always say?? i can’t give you what you want, but i will most definitely give you what you need, so long as you are willing to try. sometimes.
how was that for a sneak peak?
wait, what’s that? ohhhh, you wanted to see INSIDE the book??!? well, quit lollygaggin’ and order your copy!
