Write Now. Read Later. Treasure Forever., Lea Redmond, Other Printed Item
Twelve prompted letters offer a meaningful way for friends, family and long-distance loves to be there in spirit when they can't be there in person. The gift-giver fills this book of letters with pep talks and good cheer, seals each envelope with a sticker and gifts this keepsake for future opening. The recipient gets to break the seals to find the greatest gift: their loved one's encouraging words whenever they need them the most.
•Unique and meaningful but totally unintimidating to fill out, this is an easy way to create a personalised gift for a friend or family member, especially those living far away. This title will also help maintain the series' momentum at specialty and trade and become a backlist go-to gift for years to come. •SALES HANDLE: Next in the bestselling Letters to My . . . series (Oprah's fave)! A unique way to send good wishes to friends and family, as meaningful to receive as it is simple to complete.
KEY SELLING POINTS:
•BREAKOUT HIT SERIES: Letters to My Future Self has sold more than 200,000 copies, and current sales for Letters to My Baby, Letters to My Love and Letters to My Grandchild prove that this series is still growing and that follow-ups with more targeted audiences are just as popular as the original.
•UNIQUE FORMAT: This is a novel format that garners good gift guide coverage (including Oprah's Favorite Things!).
•WIDE AUDIENCE: This is for anyone whose friends or family live far away-the letters offer the gift giver a chance to be there in spirit in a truly personal and meaningful way when they can't be there in person.
•STRONG TRACK RECORD: A distinctive package and an easy memory keeper like this can backlist very well thanks to sell-through at key accounts-like One Line a Day (482,000 copies sold) or the Ticket Stub Diary, which has sold 180,000 copies since 2006, with the rerelease selling 89,000 copies.
