Thank you very much! :D

I remember the first time I tried that out on someone. It was my friend Ann (no relation, I take it!). I saw her eyes hunting and realised she was discarding choices. The look on her face when I got "purple" was the defining moment in the development of the approach.

Hi Tomo have asked a few queries above about TalkMagic discount for NM and NM2. What is the total including postage for both books, as I know it will be £10 discount, but is there a further discount for combining the books?

And can I pay you by Paypal?

Thanks

PM me if you'd prefer. I look forward to hearing from you.

Are my ears (or eyes) deceiving me? A discount, you say? For TM members, you say? Is this so? Because, if it is, I'm going to do a merry little jig, and then eat some ice cream, and then BUY IT! :D
P.S: If this mythical discount is real, how do I get it?

My psychic senses as taught by mark lewis tell me that you should purchase said ice cream prior to eating it.

Aw wish I'd known about that. Never mind, the book is amazing and worth every penny (and then some I'd say) discount or no discount. Tomo you are a genius. :D

Good morning all.

Right. The original TM discount was for Naked Mentalism ebooks, but I don't see why it can't be extended to paperback copies. Bought directly from Books By Tomo, they'd be £53.77 + p&p. When I send out signed copies from my private stash (er, I mean stock) I don't charge postage, never have done, so let's forget that. Knock a tenner off, and you get £43.77. Call it £43 dead.

So that's £43 for both volumes (average cost 21.50 each). How does that sound? If it sounds nice, drop me a PM for my PayPal details (and I'll pop them in the post.

Genuinely, I've just put an order in for some more! :shock: They'll be here on Thursday, and the orders will be with buyers hopefully by Friday/Saturday.

It's been weird, but when I released the first volume in summer 2007 I was genuinely worried whether it was good enough to warrant its success (ask Iain - I chewed his ear off with worry). But what's more surprising is that I'm still selling an average of 20 paperback copies a month from the Lulu storefront, plus around another 10 ebook copies and around another five paperbacks a month from home to people who want them signing. It's been a quiet success without any great advertising fanfare, which is great because I think its life cycle has been longer for being slightly obscure.

By the way, if anyone wants their copy signing, drop me a line. Rude is fine (again, ask Iain!)
