It’s been a busy week, both on the book front and PR, but I got a lot done. PALE DEMON is still a month away, but it is creeping up, and there are a few deadlines (due to shipping) that are fast approaching. I wanted to take a day to recap, because there is nothing more miserable than getting to the wrong store or finding out the last day to order was “yesterday.”
First, the tour is pretty much set. I have it up at the events page with stores and hours. If you plan on coming, please check it. We’ve already had one time change and a store policy you will want to be aware of if you are coming to the Austin event.
Pale Demon T- Shirts. Guy took a look at his schedule and moved the last day to order T-shirts up by a week. We’re still using our old printer, and he forgot to include shipping time from there to here, so if you have been holding off on ordering a tour T, the new cut off date is Feb 7. This will be the last print run for these. If we don’t have your order by then, there simply won’t be a shirt available. He also says thank you for your patience for those who have ordered. We don’t print until your order is placed, so the lag-time is frustrating. Shirts are still going out, but if you think you should have yours by now, tell Guy the email associated with the paypal account you used, and he can give you some info.
Freebies are still available for the price of a SASE! Guy stuffed envelopes for two hours last night processing what came in Tuesday, so you should start to see them in your mailbox!
My publisher has made a high-res wallpaper for your personal use. Enjoy! It’s be-u-tiful.
And to round it out, something new! I just became aware of a very cool site called Bookperk where my publisher offers signed books, unique deals, and unusual offers for a limited time. Richard Kadrey has his KILL THE DEAD up there right now, which I think is majorly cool. I’ve always enjoyed his work.
