Yes, they are real now!

Remember those personalized pre-orders you’ve been making at Nicola’s Books? Well . . . the first of the books have been printed and boxed, and because I have this arrangement with Nicola’s, some have been shipped to my local store so I can sign them before I leave to go on tour. The goal is to have them in the post to reach you on the release date, but that means some extra attention on my and Pat’s part. The first 400 have been signed, but I’m going in again to get the next batch, so it’s not too late to get in on this.  I can guarantee that these are first editions with Al’s blue butterfly on each of the chapter headings–cause I look at each one.

This is about 300 books, there’s another 100 off to the side waiting for envelopes. :-) Don’t they look beautiful?

Nicolas400To order from Nicola’s: International is okay, just email them for a shipping quote before ordering nicolasbooks@tds.net. (You have to tell them who you want it signed to when you order, or they will just send you a book.)

If you are going to be going to the Hollows Good-bye event at Nicola’s the day before Halloween, don’t panic. We are capping it at 300, but you can arrange for your line ticket by phone.  (number is at the event’s page) They will be starting to give tickets/reservations on the 9th, so please don’t call them right now. Pat is working hard on the books, and she can’t give out tickets yet, anyway. I don’t think we’re going to reach 300, so rest easy and give them a call when you can after the 9th of September, even if it’s as late as the night before. We’ve got some very cool things planned.

Also, I updated the tour page yesterday. There are a few new times, so check it out if you’re already planning on going to an event.  [ event page ]

Barnes and Noble “bundle” for binge reading

There is binge watching, and there is binge reading, and whereas there are just too many titles now to actually, ya know, put them in one box with pretty artwork and a bow, Barnes and Noble does have them all in one spot for you. :-) This is a very RARE chance to find all the titles on the same shelf, and I don’t expect it to ever happen again. And the best part? You guys, the readers, have noticed!

If you spot one of these beautiful endcaps at your local store, snap a picture and drop it on my timeline at facebook, (which is the only place I am set up to receive pictures) and I’ll add it here.

They are beautiful, every single one. Oh, and feel free to rearrange the books into their proper order. (grin)

And since we’re talking about B&N, the last time I checked, they still had  signed first editions. It will be very easy this year to know if you have a first edition as they, and only they, will have Al’s blue butterfly at the chapter headings. Beautiful!

Personalized Last Hollows Book

Isn’t this a sweet Little Free Library? I found it last weekend while up north on a fudge/carmelcorn run. It wasn’t exactly at Mackinaw, but close. :-) This was the first Little Free Library I’d ever seen in the wild, and it totally made my day. If you’re not familiar with the Little Free Libraries, they are home-grown structures where you leave a book, and take a book. I think they’re a fabulous idea, and this one was really nice.

LittleLibraryAlso, I’ll be going in to Nicola’s today to start signing those personalized pre-orders you’ve been arranging. You can get signed copies of The Witch With No Name through B&N, but if you want it signed to you with a personal note, you have to come to a signing, or order from Nicola’s. They are my local store, and this is the third year we’ve done this. International is okay, but email them for a shipping quote first at: nicolasbooks@tds.net 

I’m going in today to sign them so as to help get these out to you on the book release date, and if you want to take advantage of it, you still can. I’ll be going in at least once more before I head out on tour, and then one more time when it’s all over to catch the stragglers, so it’s not too late.

To order from Nicola’s just click. And be sure to tell them who you want me to personalize it to in the comment box when you place your order.

HumbleBundle book deal

I’m really excited to be able to bring this Harper “sale” to you. The details are below, but the gist of it is you decide what you want to pay for the bundle of books offered (which includes Dead Witch Walking and the Trouble on Reserve short) and then it’s yours. You can choose to contribute all or a portion of your payment to go to select charities. See below for the titles that your contribution can “unlock.” Sounds pretty cool to me. It’s also a nice way to get a hold of that Trouble on Reserve short. :-) So take a look. There’s a lot of cool books in there, including Jocelynn Drake’s Angel’s Ink.

By Grabthars, Hammer. What A Savings.

If you’ve been lurking on my blog the last few months, you might recall me griping about distributers trying to mandate the price of an electronic book instead of the publisher who actually, you know, creates it? That all books are not created equal any more than say, shoes, where we value individuality and creativity, and experience in shoe making, rewarding said creativity and style, and experience with a higher price tag.  That that high price associated with a small fraction of ebooks is usually temporary, when demand is high, and that it drops when the demand begins to fall. By the way, this is nothing new. Hardcovers have always been more expensive, and if you watch, you’ll notice the price on them drops dramatically when the mass market comes out. E-books are slowly finding their price points, and they seem to be following this same pattern.

For example, just this month, The Undead Pool e-book price has dropped with the mass market coming out last week, and lo, the cost of Dead Witch Walking is at an unreal zero right now. Am I upset? Am I frothing at the lips because MY CREATIVE WORK IS BEING VALUED SO LOW? Heck no. The book has been out for ten years. I’d be uncomfortable if it were being sold at 14.99, or even 9.99.  Free is okay for a little while because it’s helping to promote the last book, and so free, it is.

I have no idea how long Dead Witch Walking is going to be free for your Kindle or Nook, so if you want to update your library or gift it to a friend you’ve been trying to hook on the Hollows, now is a really good time.

Oh, and if you’re wondering about the post’s title? I love Galaxy Quest. It’s one of my stop-and-watch movies. Occasionally you can get Guy and Thing One and Thing Two on a roll, and they’ll recite entire passages.

So real I can touch it

WWNNcopyGuess what dropped on my desk yesterday! The very first copy of THE WITCH WITH NO NAME, and is it ever beautiful. I’ve always said I’m a tactile person, (as in must touch, must touch!) and this one went all the way with raised print that bumps under your fingers in gold, and red and black. The inside has its own surprise with actual blue butterflies at every chapter beginning. Blue. Can you believe it? The book itself under the dust jacket is a bright cheery yellow, which I’ve never had before and which I think is interesting because I’ve been gravitating to gold/red this year in my garden and wardrobe. But I think what I like most beyond the color scheme is the balance on the cover. Rachel has power, (power that she didn’t have to change who she is to find) but the man on the cover has power as well. This works for me on all kinds of levels, and I don’t think I’ll ever have a book whose balance I appreciate more.

So I’m going to thank Diana Gill for this, because I know she is the one that fought for all the bells and whistles even though her name wasn’t on the note that came with the book. Thanks, Diana. It looks beautiful, and feels even better.

If you are interested in having blue butterflies on your copy, make sure you get a first edition. I’ve been told it’s only the first print run that will have them.
