Hi Kathy Ann,
I’ve arranged a discount with our sales department, so that if your members use a special online ordering code they’ll get the book for £24.50 instead of £35.00.
It’s a bit tricky for us, because we charge 20% for international postage, so I’ve pulled some strings and given you a 30% discount (previously unheard of around here!).
So – what you’ll end up with is a 10% discount overall. I know that the conversion rates from pounds to dollars is horrendous, but I hope this helps in some small way. I’m pretty sure we’re not going to be making any money out of this deal, but I believe it’s important for the book to be available to your members.
You get a free copy for review – this will be posted out immediately.
The discount code you can mention on your website (and any marketing you’d like to do amongst friends/colleagues etc) is: KANBARRETT
Just direct people to this link: http://www.radcliffe-oxford.com/books/bookdetail.aspx?ISBN=185775719X and they can order online, direct from us. This special discount is only available from our website, direct from us here in the UK – local bookshops and Amazon won’t agree to it.
I’ve had a special flyer made up, and have attached it here as a pdf. Feel free to use this on your website. It details the offer and provides links to ordering etc.
The price is still high, I know, but the offer is available to anyone who knows the special code, so if people want to go to their library/office/department and hand out the code they should feel free. I hope this helps to make the book more widely available.
It is interesting that some people have been upset by the title – indeed I was originally upset by it too, and fought hard to have it changed…but to no avail! I don’t see ‘transsexuality’ as a disorder at all…but after reading the book I realised (perhaps, like you) that the word ‘disorder’ is used to describe anything which a patient feels isn’t the way they were ‘meant to be’. In this case, ‘disorder’ is fine. Perhaps if more people understood this use of the term, in this instance, they’d feel happy about it being used in the book’s title. I have worked with James Barrett for about 12 months on this book and I find him to be a very personable chap who is quite certain that his book will help patients and health professionals work together in a cohesive effective way. He’s very definitely trying to help, rather than hinder, and feels passionately about the cause.
I hope that after reading the text you find the same.
PS: If you have any difficulties with the offer, please just get in touch.
