Welcome to the site! I'm sending you a PM (personal message)


hiya,
i stumbled accross this web site and thought i may get some help if possible, its my parents birthdays in december and as the biggest terry pratchett fans i know (and i know i alot) i thought it would be nice if i could send a letter to mr pratchett along with an addressed envelope to my parents and maybe he could just pop a signed pic of him self along to them? maybe even saying happy birthday to them?
what do you think? would it be possible to get a PO BOX address or something for him? he must have somewhere we can send letters?
thanks so much
hope to hear from you soon

[quote="Tonyblack"]It's actually quite difficult as Terry is a very busy man who has been swamped with emails since his announcement about his Alzheimer's. If he was to even try to read all his emails he'd never have the time to write any books. :)

I know this it is going to be a long short but I thought I would ask anyway. My boyfriend is a very big Diskworld fan and he has been so for most of his life. He has recently lost his only signed booked by Terry Pratchatt due to lost luggage.

I would like to replace this book for Christmas and I was wondering if it would be possible for him to sign a copy if I send him the book with a paid return envelop?

Is there is an address or PO box where I can contact Mr. Pratchatt? Or would it be better to contact him through Colin Smythe

Cheers

Hi gerelle

I think what you're asking might be impossible, however, if you want some signed TP stuff, check out this link. It might have something you want. :D

edit: I've just seen this on the PJSM prints site.
PJSM prints wrote:PLEASE DO NOT SEND YOUR OWN BOOKS TO BE AUTOGRAPHED

W. B. Yeats wrote on the endpaper of a copy of his The Winding Stair and Other Poems (1933):

Never send a book to an author to be autographed
(1) because he has no sealing wax,
(2) because he has no string,
(3) because he does not know how to tie up a parcel,
(4) because you will probably not get the book back.

Thomas Hardy once showed me a corner cupboard full of such books.

He gave them to his friends on their birthdays

Mind you, I also have an umbrella with a hippo's head carved for the handle. I call him Hugo and talk to him when I'm out and about.
I decided on his name because when it rains, 'You go where I go' ...
So when your Kipper gets wet he looks like a hairy fish. :wink:

Hi gerelle, I was going to say the same but pooh beat me to it ,and PJSM are good as I'm a regular customer there, they have some nice stuff as does The Cunning Artificer at the Discworld Emporium although they do the books they are not signed as the ones on PJSM. http://www.discworldemporium.com/catalog.php

No problem internationally with PJSM either . I've had deliveries to ireland quite a few times and my uncle has ordered stuff to Austrailia.
If i remeber correctly they'll even send it to Antartica. :D

I also wanted to contact Tp to say thanks for all books and found this place.
:shock:
Id be happy just sending a letter thanking him for all the laughs and good moments but prolly there are millions of people with same idea. :D

So ill have to catch him in a book signing event. He cant get away. Nu-hu.

When I've published my own books (hopefully one day ;) ) I'll pretend to be my own agent... ;)

(Wasn't that an idea in one of the Discworld books ?)
