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?
To order from Nicola’s: International is okay, just email them for a shipping quote before ordering firstname.lastname@example.org. (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 ]
