If you are in Michigan, or more specifically, Lansing; or if you are within driving distance, or just like a road trip, I am doing a precious few appearances to celebrate the release of THE HOLLOWS INSIDER this week and next. This is very much a spur of the moment deal, so there will likely not be the number of people usually present at one of the signings related to the regular spring tour. That means smaller numbers, and more of a chance to get your backlist signed. Not to mention getting your hands on the first-edition, glow-in-the-dark Hollows Insider. (Only the first editions will glow. Pre-orders from Amazon and Borders should get the first editions, but after that first week or so, you never know. It depends on sales. Signed books are going to be even more rare as I’m not getting out much.) Guy and I are also debating taking some free Madison books to the two signings to give away that might otherwise be a Manic Monday. Speak of which, I’ve got one going today at noon. Info is down below.
But as for the signing, I will be kicking off the release of THE HOLLOWS INSIDER at Schulers Books and Music tomorrow night after normal work hours. I’ve signed at Schulers before, and I love the store. They have a nice place for me to hide before the event. (ha!!) And coffee/tea to enjoy. I hope to see some of you there!

Because we clearly don’t have enough to do this week, Guy and I are going to have a Manic Monday this afternoon for several sets of the first three Hollows books in German–plus the chance for a signed, glow-in-the-dark cover of the Hollows Insider. If you speak it, or know someone who does, or simply want three signed books, Now is your chance.
Guy will begin taking orders at noon today, EST. (Don’t email him now. Wait for noon.) One set per person, please. The cost covers the shipping and handling. USA shipments will take two weeks from when we ship, international will be a bit longer as there are forms to fill out and longer shipping times.
Shipping and Handling is $14.38 in the US, $33.58 to Canada, and $53.38 everywhere else. We are going to try to ship to Germany this time, but please allow a generous time for the books to get to you as everything gets hung up in customs. To make this as painless as possible for Guy, we are taking Pay Pal only. Unfortunately we can’t combine any other merchandise in with this, but you will get a collector card that is promoting both THE HOLLOWS INSIDER and A PERFECT BLOOD (It’s got the cover on it. Bea-u-tiful!) Everything will come Priority Mail.
If you are interested, at noon, EST today, (no earlier) send an email to Guy at firstname.lastname@example.org with the words German editions 1-3 in the subject line. If you are among the fifteen, he will send you an invoice, so please include your shipping address in your initial email. If you are among the first 16-27, you have the option to pick up just DWW. The cost will go down accordingly, and you will have 24 hours after hearing from Guy to accept or decline the smaller shipment. If you do not include your shipping address in the initial email, he can not ship you your book(s), and your order will not be acted on. PayPal doesn’t always put the address in, and it’s frustrating. We don’t do anything with your address but ship you your book(s). We don’t have the time to do anything wicked, and I hate it when people sell mine, so . . .
We don’t have a lot of these, and because of the nature of them being translations, I have no idea how fast these are going to go. As a bonus, the first 10 sets will go out with a signed HOLLOWS INSIDER cover as a thank you. As usual, I’ll update this post when they are gone to help avoid confusion. If you miss out, I’ll be having more shipping and handling give aways. We also still have the Pale Demon Freebies available for the price of two stamps, which are also going out with the S&H books.
PS. Weekend was beautiful in Michigan. I got one more ride in on my bike, tidied the yard, and made a pie. Yum!
