OK, for the very, very, very last time, I promise: A SIGNING IN PARAMUS, NJ!!!!


MULTI-AUTHOR SIGNING!


AUGUST 1st, 2009
Noon-4pm @
Borders Express
Paramus Park Mall
600 Paramus Park
Paramus, NJ 07652
including:
S.C. Butler; Barbara Campbell
Laura Anne Gilman; Jackie Kessler
Joshua Palmatier; Anton Strout



Hope to see a few of you there!

And now for the contest: I will be giving away a first edition signed hardcover of The Skewed Throne, one per day, for the next ten days. The drawing will be done at random based on the comments received on that day's LJ entry. So if you enter today, you're in the drawing for today only; you have to come back tomorrow and enter again for a chance to win in the drawing tomorrow; then come back again for the next day, etc. You have to comment on that day's LJ post to enter for that day, so if you stop on by and I haven't had a chance to put up the post for that day yet, you'll have to come back when it's up to enter. You can enter as many days out of the 10 as you wish, even if you win on one of the days (if you win multiple copies, or already have a copy of the book, I assume you have some friends you can give the book to, or perhaps you can donate it to your local library, etc).

This contest is to celebrate finishing the revisions of the new book Well of Sorrows, coming out in May 2010 in trade paperback, AND to celebrate the release of Die Assassine, the German version of The Skewed Throne, which will hit the shelves on August 11th in Germany. Here's the incredible cover:





So if you're in Germany or can read German, RUSH--I say again RUSH--out and buy Die Assassine! Once it's out of course. And please, please tell all of your friends about it, since it's going to be impossible for me to do many signings and other stuff to promote it in Germany. Especially since I can't speak or read German very well.

And there you go! Stop by and see me in Paramus if you can, enter the contest (just comment!) every day for the next 10 days, and buy my German book!

That's all. Carry on.

I'll second cat's comment.

Actually, the release of The Well of Sorrows in trade paperback makes me curious. Was there a reason to go with trade first as opposed to hardcover?

Date: 2009-08-02 11:51 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] jpsorrow.livejournal.com
The main reason for the trade edition is that the sales of the hardcovers of the other 3 books wasn't as good as they'd hoped, AND that the hardcover market has decreased drastically with the economy the way it is. So they're going to try the trade editions and see if they do better sales than the hardcovers for me.

But expect to see fewer hardcover releases of new, newer, or midlist authors in the future, due to the economy.

Wow! That's fantastic!

Congrats on Die Assassine! And Well of Sorrows!

Any plans on doing signings or whatever in Indianapolis?

I'm considering doing some signings in that general direction next summer, when the new book comes out. Or at least trying to hit a few of the cons in that area. If you have a con you go to, or a favorite bookstore you'd like me to do a signing at, let me know!

Sorry for the above comment edits. It's too early in the morning and I've yet to start coffee.

I'll go an buy it. (will read the translation first a bit to decide if I will buy it for me, or for someone else. What age is this appropriate for (have a fantasy friendly newphew with an upcoming Bday, too ;))

Thanks! I already ordered copies for myself. As for age, I'd say 12 and up is fine. There's nothing graphic in the books IMO, but there is some violence. She's an assassin after all.

Man, I wish more of you cool authors lived in reasonable driving distance of me. *grins* Hope you have fun at the signing!

What is reasonable driving distance from you? And where, exactly, are you?

Date: 2009-08-02 05:34 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] beckyh2112.livejournal.com
I live in New Orleans. Reasonable driving distance is two or three hours in any direction, though if you're two hours south of me, you're in the Gulf. ;-)

Thanks! Book 2's cover is also gorgeous. Not as gritty though.

The signing went very well, and we'll likely be back in NJ again at some point. Keep watch!

I don't speak German, so I don't think the german book would be good for me. LOL.

Well, there is an English version as well . . . *grin*

Congrats! Your the winner of Day 1 of the 10 day giveaway! Either message me with your address here on LJ, or send a message with your address to jpalmatier@sff.net. If you'd like it personalized to you or someone else, just let me know what name to use and spell it correctly. Otherwise I'll just send you a signed copy and you can do whatever you'd like with it. And congrats again! Thanks for entering!

And yes, the signing was a blast. Keep watch. I'm sure we'll be doing other signings in the NJ area in the future.
