I received a letter from a gentleman who said he doesn’t like to deal with a post office box! He wants to purchase my book but wants my telephone number and address. Hellooooo! This is not on!
As with a lot of online businesses who have a product to sell and selling from home, we don’t want to blend the two. Home is home and business is business. and never the twain shall meet. I am not giving out my home details to anyone. I’m sure anyone who has a sense of security would agree with me. Why should I risk my security just to sell books. I don’t need to. My book will be in stores soon so I guess he will just have to wait. For all I know he could be a stalker or a sexual predator. I’m not going to let down my guard so forget it buddy.
The tone of his letter was so very demanding too. ‘How dare I not give an address or phone number.’ That’s the feeling I got.
Not very nice so you sir will not even get a reply from me. Perhaps he has been stung before but if he thinks that of me he had better be darned careful. I pride myself on my honesty and integrity and the worthiness of my book. I have an image and a reputation to uphold as do the celebrities and the doctor who are on my website.
So whether he wanted the book for himself or a fat pet, they will have to do without until they realise I am not fooling!
If he rang the Marleston Post Office in Adelaide they would confirm my business as they all know me quite well. They have been a valuable service for my business and are really lovely people.
