Being Facebook friends with a famous author can have it’s benefits. Earlier today, Anne Rice told her friends on Facebook about a special offer involving autographed copies of The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty:
Personally autographed copies of “The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty” in trade paperback are still available at some Target stores in the country. Can’t tell which ones have sold out, which ones still have the book, etc. But books are out there, some signed in blue ink, some in black. This is the first novel in my erotic “Sleeping Beauty Trilogy” and these books are not for everyone. They are erotica and a bit extreme. But I hope some of you will be responding to the offer at Target. It is an “in store” offer only. And only in the US.
Of course, Rice also announced the promotion on Twitter as well, so it’s not exactly a closely guarded secret. Still, it’s good to know that autographed copies of The Claiming of Sleeping are out there waiting to be purchased. With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, an autographed copy of The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty makes a great gift idea for that special Dominant or submissive in your life.
I once had a first edition first printing copy of “The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty“, but it was lost when my ex-wife loaned it to a coworker. I’m going to be stopping by a Target tomorrow, perhaps an autographed copy of “The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty” will properly replace that long-lost first edition.
