Golf novelist Bob Thomas offers unique, collectible golf gifts for Christmas
Many years ago, I reviewed Bob Thomas’s first book, Ben Hogan’s Secret. Despite that book spending over two years on the golf bestseller list, his publisher at the time, according to Thomas, was less than forthright with respect to the royalties. Thomas later found publishers in general to be an unsavory lot, and he developed a novel distribution model (no pun intended) to get his books into the hands of golfers.
This Christmas, Thomas is offering a unique opportunity to purchase collectible Author’s Editions of his books at steep discounts from his web site.
Says Thomas about the offer: “For the first time, I’m making my collectible Author’s Editions available to the golfing public. These are signed, numbered, limited edition copies of my books. They’re valuable gifts, as well as good reads. These Author’s Editions sell for $69-149 online. I’m selling them for $20-35 apiece.”

It seems that as the "boomer" generation grows older, those "kids" born more recently are not as interested in reading books as a form of entertainment. That is a shame - particularly for those "kids" that have an interest in golf. They have no idea what they are missing by not allowing themselves into the world that Mr. Thomas creates with his writing.
