It’s as easy as placing an online order here and indicating in the comments something like “signed by author, please” and “inscribed to Suzy-Q.” As soon I can, I’ll hop down to the bookstore and they’ll either ship the book to you or hold it for pickup in their awesome store in downtown Concord, MA, USA .

You can also call [(978) 369-2405] or email [] the bookshop directly if you have any questions.

I’d like to thank The Concord Bookshop for partnering up! And I’m glad to say that no matter where you are, you can get a personalized and signed copy of Lady Pancake & Sir French Toast!
