Thinking of buying Tokyo Heist this holiday season, maybe as a gift for the art-lover, mystery-lover, or manga-lover in your life?

If you are purchasing the book for a gift, as my way of saying thanks (thanks!!), I will happily send you a signed bookplate, a signed bookmark, and crime scene tape!

The bookplate is on elegant acid-free paper, can easily be pasted into the book, and shows the famous Japanese woodblock print “The Wave” by Hokusai. There’s room for my signature and, if desired, a short personal message for the recipient.

I’ll also throw in some Tokyo Heist crime scene tape! It matches the tape on the cover, and is official police-grade tape (not that it really matters). The tape makes a nice wrapping for the book, and it can be reused for decoration in a school locker, on a bedroom wall, or across your front door. Mystify your neighbors!

Here’s a photo shoot with the crime scene tape modeling on and beside the actual book:

If you’d like these free items to jazz up your gift of Tokyo Heist, please use the form on my Contact page and send me an email with your name and mailing address, and anything else I might need to know (such as the gift recipient’s name if personalization is requested). Sorry, this giveaway is limited to the U.S. and Canada only, due to the cost of postage.

If you happen to live near Boston and you’d like to get these things in person, my next signing is this Thursday, 4:30-6:00, at the Chenery Middle School in Belmont. I’ll be taking part in their Winter Book Fair along with an amazing lineup of authors — Jack Farraiolo, Erin Dionne, Erin Moulton, and Julie Berry. We’ll be talking books, signing books, and selling books to benefit the school library. If you’re in the area, come on by and put your holiday book-buying dollars toward a good cause!
