So, the "Last Hurrah!" signing has come and gone. *sigh* With it came, of course, SNOW! We have had no snow so far this winter. The forecast did not call for snow (I checked the night before). And yet, the day of the signing, after everyone managed to arrive from their various locations . . . it began to snow. With accumulation. *headdesk* But I think a fun and jolly time was had by all and we managed to sell a few books, even though the "crowd" at the mall was not as significant as it might have been on a Saturday. Thanks to everyone who ventured forth and came to see us! And of course to those who purchased books from us. We only gift-wrapped a few, but for those of you who missed us, the bookstore still has signed copies, as you can see in the display:





If you'd like to grab some of those signed copies, give the bookstore a call at (607) 798-7452 and they can get them shipped out to you! But hurry. Since the bookstore is closing, some of those books are going to be stripped *gasp* and sent back WITHIN THE NEXT FEW DAYS!!! So save the books! They're much more entertaining than whales AND they fit on your bookshelves!

We had lots of fun, as I said, and we have some pics to prove it. Here we have the pimp bear:





Followed by me being good to my fans:

Here are some of the group author photos, minus Barbara Campbell and Anton Strout, who bailed because of the weather (they wanted to get home before it got really nasty):

And lastly, the co-editors of the upcoming After Hours: Tales From the Ur-Bar anthology, being . . . well, co-editors:

Hey, Christmas is right around the corner! Do you need some cool books to buy for that booklover? Books they might not have seen or read yet? Are they waiting impatiently (like all of us) for that next Jordan/Sanderson or Martin fantasy to hit the shelves? Well give them some damn good fantasy to read while they wait! Here's a reminder about the signing, and also a list of great fantasy novels fans could use to wile away some of those cold winter evenings. Check them out! You might just find a brand new author who can knock your socks off! And if you'd like signed copies, give the store a call [(607) 798-7452] and ask for how to get them signed and sent to you with free shipping!

This is a reminder about the signing at the Waldenbooks at the Oakdale Mall in Johnson City, NY, on December 5th from Noon-4pm. But it's more than that. I want to emphasize that you don't have to be there to get the signed books! The manager of the store is willing to arrange shipment of signed books to you, personalized and even gift wrapped if you'd like. All you have to do is contact April, the manager, by email at fireun3@gmail.com or called the bookstore at (607) 798-7452 to make the arrangements. There's no shipping cost and you can make arrangements for the payment with them. BUT YOU NEED TO CALL BEFORE THANKSGIVING!!! So you've only got a few days.

Now, if you CAN make the signing, great! A reminder: FREE GIFT WRAPPING!! By authors who may (or may not) know anything about gift wrapping!! That, in and of itself, will be a blast. *grin* I'm sure we'll also have some candy and other freebies to give away.

Here are the details of the signing if you think you can make it. Keep in mind that Christmas is inching ever closer. Ask yourself who on your gift list might enjoy some great fantasy novels! Signed even!

It's my sad news to report that the local Waldenbooks, in the Oakdale Mall, is on the list of stores to be closed at the beginning of the new year. This is sad in more than one way--everyone hates to see a bookstore close--because this particular bookstore manager, April, has treated me and many other fellow authors with both respect and fan-glee. She has supported us by making certain that our books are on the shelf at the store AND, perhaps more importantly, talking the books up to her customers and making certain that they are in the hands of potential readers out there. I honestly can't believe the bookstore is closing.

However, before the news of the closing hit the airwaves, we'd arranged for a holiday signing at the store. It's now become a "last hurrah!" signing, and we're hoping to make it a huge send-off not only for April but for all of the employees at the store who've helped push our books in the past. So if you're in the Binghamton area--or even within a reasonable driving distance--come by on December 5th from Noon-4pm and help us let April and the other employees know how much we appreciate all of their efforts over the years. We'd like this signing to be a huge success! In addition to having our books there to sign for either you OR as gifts for all of your friends, we'll be wrapping the books you intend to use as gifts as well. FREE GIFT WRAPPING!! By authors who may (or may not) know anything about gift wrapping!! That, in and of itself, will be a blast. *grin* I'm sure we'll also have some candy and other freebies to give away.

We realize that not everyone is within even an unreasonable driving distance of Binghamton, NY. If you can't make it for whatever reason, you can still help us celebrate and thank April and the other bookstore employees by buying the books through the store and having them shipped to you (or someone else). April has graciously agreed to handle ordered copies in two different ways: you can either have the signed books shipped to a local Waldenbooks in your area so you can pick them up there, or April can ship them directly to you. For the second option, there will be no shipping cost (for shipments in the US), April will simply charge you for the books. For either of these options, send an email to fireun3@gmail.com with either the name of the town or city where the local Waldenbooks is located OR with where you'd like the books shipped. You should include what books you'd like by what author, how you want them signed, and (if they're shipping directly to you) if you want them wrapped.

Here are the details of the signing if you think you can make it. Keep in mind that Christmas is inching ever closer. Ask yourself who on your gift list might enjoy some great fantasy novels! Signed even!
