The Piercing Bible

It's in the Mail!

I've heard from several of the writers who will be doing reviews on my book: they've already received their copies of The Piercing Bible in the mail! Meanwhile (here in Mexico) I'm empty handed. I guess the slow mail service is one of the few drawbacks of living here. I'm glad they got their copies already--but frankly--I want one too!

80% and Counting

Today I looked at the Amazon.com page for The Piercing Bible, and I saw that 80% of the people who visited the page purchased my book! That's a super-high "conversion rate" for a retail website. Of course I know the figure can change, but that really knocked my socks off! Well, it isn't as though there is some other title to choose if someone is looking for a reference book all about piercing. : )

My First Review (of sorts)

I was looking at the Google Books Preview of The Piercing Bible and noticed someone had posted a review!
If you are a body piercer or have just been curious as to what goes into getting a body piercing then this is the book for you. I was amazed at all the information that there is in this book. Elayne was able to break down each piercing individually and write about the correct placement, style and size jewelry for each. I feel one of the best parts of the book is when she talks about the risky piercings and why they can be dangerous. It just goes to show that just because a piercer offers this piercing doesn't mean that it should be one that you get. I look forward to reading the rest of the book and I know that it is one that I will be sharing with others.
Sounds good to me!

Fan Mail

This one just about made me blush today. It was so nice that this woman took the time to write to me:
Hi Elayne, I have been thinking about your upcoming book release and the signing.  How exciting!  I have tried to imagine how I would feel in your shoes.  I am so pleased for you and so proud for you. As a businesswoman in this world which is not always kind, you have made big headway. I own a small company and know what a hard boss I have!   You have really excelled in your career even before this book of course.  I think you should  give yourself a big pat on the back for your accomplishments! This is starting to sound like cheerleading - lol!  Anyway, I think it is great that you have new things going on in your life.  I do plan to purchase your book and I am sure that I will learn so much from it. Have a great time at the signing and at the piercing convention.  It's the other side of the States for me so I will not be attending but I will be sending you good thoughts! Best, Dawn

The Piercing Bible is Almost Here!

My editor told me that The Piercing Bible inventory has arrived at the warehouse, and that she'd send me a copy this week. I am so excited!! I can't wait to see the finished product. She also had me notify my contacts who are planning to review the book that they were going to be shipped out shortly. Entering this next phase is so thrilling! Oh, and I got so excited this weekend when I was searching for something about piercing when I ran into my very own words on Google Books. The Piercing Bible is on there (well, about 30% of the book). Check it out! Please feel free to let me know your thoughts and comments.

Link to Article in the Chicago Sun Times

Neil Steinberg, the author of the article mentioned below, told me he might wait until closer to the book's publication date (in May) to run the piece that included my interview. But, it ran today. Here is the link to the article in the Chicago Sun Times. He got most of it right, but made it sound as though I'd done 40,000 genital piercings (rather than piercings overall, which I meant). He also said it would be published "next month" but it won't be on the shelves until May. But you can still pre-order it at a dicount here on Amazon.com.
