Great gift for teachers

I'm getting ready to launch a new webpage promoting "Secret Confessions of the Applewood PTA" as a great gift for teachers by offering free personalized bookplates, which I'll inscribe to the teacher. They'll look something like this:

Happy to say I've been getting wonderful endorsement quotes from teachers, which I plan on using in the promotion. Here's a sampling:

"Funnier and more touching than I ever could have imagined. Any teacher who's ever wondered about those PTA moms will love this book!" -- Lisa P., 3rd Grade Teacher, NY

"Masterful, brilliant and what a great movie this would make! It made me yearn for such a group of friends to be surrounded by, each so complex and fully human." -- Randall B., High School English Teacher, PA

"'Secret Confessions of the Applewood PTA' is smart, laugh-out-loud fun. Who knew the PTA could be this exciting?" -- Lauran S., Continuing Ed Teacher, VA

"Get the book, slip between the cover and have the time of your life. This is a seriously funny, engaging, endearing read." -- Mary A., Art Teacher, NY

If you'd like one of these teacher bookplates, just send me a stamped, self-addressed envelope, and tell me the name of the teacher, the name of the family the book is from, and whether you'd like inscription A, B or C:

Inscription A:
To (Name),
A teacher the (Family name)s admire.
Best wishes,
Ellen Meister

Inscription B
To (Name),
Who gets an A+ from the (Family name)s!
Best wishes,
Ellen Meister

Inscription C
To (Name),
With warmest wishes,
Ellen Meister

Send the SASE and info to:
Ellen Meister
P.O. Box 52
Hicksville, NY 11802-0052

Of course, the bookplate offer isn't limited to teacher gifts. If you'd like one for yourself or anyone on your list, send me an SASE and I'll get it right out to you. Remember, though, that I won't be sending you an actual book. You'll have to do that part yourself. It's available at most bookstores, and online.

You have such nice handwriting!

Cool offer, Ellen.

Lisa... ha! You didn't see the 10 failed attempts I threw in the trash. ;)

Do you feel like you can't write with a pen anymore? I swear my handwriting gets worse the more I spend my time typing.

Where do you get your interesting ideas?

Man! I wish I had some teachers to buy this for. What a great gift idea, Ellen.
