Personalized Videos for Valentine's Day
My shame is melting away like a Subalpine Fir's ice-pack, and I'd be honored if you shared this experience with me.

Send a screenshot of your pre-order purchase of Must Love Trees: An Unconventional Guide where the purchase date is between February 10th and 14th to email@example.com with the subject “Vday vid” or something like that.
Please specify in your email the following.
Who is it for?
Sexy voice or non-sexy voice?
Pink or green shirt?

Valentines Day is a secular holiday named after a Christian saint. The Jewish people have our own "Jewish Valentines Day," Tu B'Av. It's customary to wear white and meet your match at a big dance. Put a shirt on.
