Hey, all! Barbara Ashford and I will be throwing a release party for our two books Well of Sorrows (mine) and Spellcast (hers) TOMORROW, June 5th, from 1-4pm at:


Spectator's Bar
219 North Ave.
New Rochelle, NY 10801


We'll have some food set out and copies of all of our books available for purchase as well, including the anthology AFTER HOURS. But it's really just an excuse to get together with friends and family and throw a party. *grin* Come on by! Take a day trip up from the city! I mean, it's two authors for the price of one!

Today, April 10th, Barbara Ashford and I (plus Ben Tate) will be signing copies of AFTER HOURS: TALES FROM THE UR-BAR at Spectator's Bar and Grill (and/or Pub) in New Rochelle, NY! We'll have some bar food out for people to snack on and the books to buy if you don't have it already. Feel free to stop by! We're there from 1-4pm, and since both of us have books coming out in May (SPELLCAST from Barbara and WELL OF SORROWS in paperback from me), you can come chat with us about those new releases as well. The address is below. If you're in NYC, take a break and do an outing up to Spectator's for drinks, bar food, and a good long friendly chat with two fantasy authors. We'll be searching for the perfect Gilgamesh impersonator among the crowd. *grin*

And now I'd like to talk about some of the Fall TV that we're starting to see. Last night, I saw Flashforward . . . and I have to say that I liked it! Alot! The main issue I see with the show at this point is that the SF event that is the heart of the show has already happened. It's the setup. The rest appears to be the story unfolding from this event and how people react to it, so I'm kind of wondering if they can keep up the "cool" factor of the premise without doing more "flashforwards" down the road. They've certainly got a few mysteries to solve, which is good. I'm certainly interested in the show and intend to keep watching.

During one of the breaks for this, they showed a trailer for a remake of V. I never saw the original show when it aired, but the preview looked interesting. It had the cool SF factor, but it didn't really give away much in terms of storyline. So in that respect, Flashforward kicked V's ass. I was much more anxious about seeing the Flashforward premiere than I am to seeing the V premiere. I'll check it out of course.

I also watched Fringe last night, and it was good. But I already liked Fringe so there's no surprise there. I like what they're doing with the season so far.

After that I watched Project Runway. Not much to say here, except that it still seems to catch my attention and keep it.

In other reality TV news, I'm looking forward to The Amazing Race starting up this Sunday.

And that's what I've seen so far. What else is everyone anticipating or watching in the way of TV this Fall?

CONTEST!!!!

Aug. 1st, 2009 06:41 am
jpskewedthrone: (Default)
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.

First off, and for the last time, today's the day! (Well, I'm posting this a little early [and a little drunk] because I'll likely not want to do it in the morning since I have to leave rather early.) A SIGNING IN PARAMUS!!! Come meet with a bunch of great authors!! Meet your favorites, chat, or come and find some new favorites!! We're all fun and we don't use half as many exclamation points in person!!!!!!

Feel free to mention the signing in your own blog if you have readers who might be interested.

Also, that library donation thing. (I usually get at least one person responding to this per month, which is a good thing.)

I've decided this year that I will continue donating hardcover copies of my first two books to libraries. So, if your local library does not have the books, send me an email at jpalmatier@sff.net with the address for the library and, if there is one, the name of the contact person for that library. If you aren't sure if your library accepts donations, or if you don't know if they have a contact person, a quick phone call to your library should provide the answer. So send in those addresses! I'll get the books mailed out ASAP.

I intend to do this all year, and hope to provide reminders at the end of each month. Unfortunately, I'll have to restrict the donations to US addresses only, due to the postage costs outside the US being rather high.

And speaking of hardcovers, if you'd like to buy the hardcovers but your local bookstore can't seem to get their hands on them, you can always get them from me. I have . . . a few copies sitting around. *ahem* Here are the prices:

Hardcover Copies:

The Skewed Throne: $15
The Cracked Throne: $15
The Vacant Throne): $20

I'd ask that if you'd like paperbacks that you get them from your local bookstore. That helps my sales record, and all bookstores should still be able to get their hands on all of the paperbacks with relative ease. However, if you've tried the local bookstore and just don't want to have them order them (or you'd REALLY like to have signed copies), I do have those available as well at $8 each. In addition, if you don't live near Binghamton, NY, but would like signed copies, you can contact my local Waldenbooks at (607) 798-7452 and arrange to have them signed for you and mailed to you.

All prices are for US addresses. I can give you a quote for the books for an address outside the US if you send me an email with the address you'd like them shipped to and then you can decide if it's worth it.

So, if you're interested in the hardcovers (or paperbacks), send me an email at jpalmatier@sff.net with what you'd like and we can figure out how to handle the payment. (I do have Paypal.) And of course, I'd be willing to sign the copies before mailing them out, personalized even, if you want.

And lastly, watch out for a giveaway in the next few weeks. The Skewed Throne is coming out in German on August 11th (in Germany, obviously) and I'm planning on a little something to celebrate, so watch this space!

So, if you live anywhere near Paramus, NJ, you're in for a special treat this coming Saturday, August 1st. A group of 6 fantasy authors (including me) will be gathering at the Borders Express in the Paramus Park Mall for FOUR HOURS in order to sign books and chat with fans about writing, fantasy, or whatever else happens to crop up during conversation. This is nearly the same group that descended on Binghamton, NY, a short time ago (Patricia Bray couldn't make it), and you all saw the video of that event on YouTube. So you know that this will be a blast. So stop on by! I'll try to put up a few more reminders this coming week.

This coming Saturday, July 11th, I'll be doing a talk at the monthly meeting of the Science Fiction Association of Bergen County (NJ) as their monthly featured guest. The meeting is being held at the Barnes and Noble in Hackensack, NJ, starting at 8pm. Everyone is invited to come to and listen in and, of course, buy and get books signed! As far as I can tell, it's an open discussion, so you can ask any questions you want as well. If you're in the area, stop on by! Here's the address for the bookstore, although it's in the mall, so should be easy to find:

Barnes & Noble
The Shops at Riverside
187 Riverside Square
Hackensack, NJ 07601
201-488-8037

Hope to see you all there!
