Into The Woods signing party

Last night, Guy and I went to a signing party out at Nicola’s, signing the orders that had come in since last week, and wow!  This is going great! I’ve already gone through one pen and started on another, which is cool because this and Comic Con are the only two ways this year to get one signed. The only problem is that Guy is standing over my shoulder saying, stuff like, Oh! LeAnn!  I send stuff to her all the time.  She’s a nice lady.”  (Sheesh!) Sometimes, I think he knows you better than I do.

There is still one week left to order one of these bad-boys before we reach the cutoff of October 3rd, noon EST.  It’s sort of like a Manic Monday that last all week, because as soon as we hit that noon, EST mark, there is no way you will get this on the drop date.  Oh, you can still order one, and I will still sign it, but it might be a few days after the drop date that you get it.  I’ve got to get back from Comic Con, for one thing.  🙂 ( If you’re going, I’ve got my schedule here.)

To order one a signed/personalized Into The Woods, this is what you do.

1.  Go to their ordering site and order a book.  I’ve got the link at the end here.

2.  Work through the order form until you get to the “pay me” part.  Way down at the bottom you’ll see a box that looks like this.

3.  In this box, you write in “Please have Kim sign my book”  ORRRRRRRR  “Please have Kim sign my book to __________”  and fill in the blank with who you want me to personalize it to.  The first will get you my signature, the second will get it personalized to you with a note.

4.  If you don’t put anything in the box, you’ll get a book but no signature.  🙂

5.  International orders are okay.  Email them for a shipping quote at nicolasbooks@tds.net with “ordering Into The Woods” in the subject line.

6.   If you want it by the drop date, you have to order by October 3rd, noon EST.

7.  Here’s the link to get you started.  Nicola’s signed Into The Woods offer

And if you’re on the fence about it, I’ve got a .99c excerpt available as an ebook.  Pet Shop Boys also has the first chapter of EVER AFTER in it, too.  I’ve just got stuff going on all over the place!  -grin-

Into the Woods sneak peek at iO9

Had a great day yesterday with good writing, good dirt time, and caping it off with good PR prep work.

I finally gave book 12 a hard look and let go of the summer solstice and moved the dates to the 4th of July.  It made more logical sense for what was going on with the girls, and no one ever notices when I set a book around the solstice anyway.  But the 4th?  -grin- It’s hard to ignore the fireworks, right?  This is my last look before I turn it in in December, so next week I have to start the rough draft of book 13.  I’m starting to think I’m procrastinating, but the timing has been singularly unique that I could do the page proofs of book 11, followed by a rewrite of book 12, and then start the rough draft of 13–all in the same month.  It just doesn’t happen like that, and it’s especially important to keep the flow right with the relationships I’m juggling right now.

A few hours outside moving three yards of dirt into a new bed I started a few weeks ago.  A tree is coming Thursday, and I was panicking the dirt wouldn’t be there when the tree arrived.  I’m going to try one of those water bags you see on new city/state trees these days.  At least until the ground freezes.

And finally, I spent a couple of hours prepping the freebies for Comic Con next month. 🙂 It’s amazing
what you can get done in front of the TV, and honesty, I think there were more commercials than movie thanks to creative editing, (really don’t like it when they take parts out), so I got half of them done. ore on that later. Here’s a link to my schedule if you’re going.  I’ll be adding a few things here and there, maybe, so check back the day you’re actually on the floor.  Kim’s Comic Con schedule.


But I said sneak peek, didn’t I?  Yep, I’ve got a bit of a free spoiler of INTO THE WOODS for you via i09 today.  IO9 Excerpt-Into The Woods Even if you don’t care to partake in e-books, it’s a nice tidbit for Tuesday, and will give you a good taste of what Trent’s thinking. -grin-

P.S.  My mind is not here this morning.  It took me three gos to actually get this post right after posting.  Seriously, don’t ask me to think outside the Hollows today.  I will be confused and scattered.  Woe to the telemarketer and political pusher, I will be speaking in tongues.

Busy Weekend

I had a hellacious weekend, and I’m exhausted. Saturday was spent moving two ton of rock into a new rock wall.  I swore I was done making rock walls, but there it is.  Just need the dirt now, which was supposed to be in Friday, but I can wait.  I’m thinking three yards . . .  Sunday was supposed to be a nice trip out to find some plants to put into it, but . . .

Sunday turned into an unexpected trip out to the Ren fair, unexpected in the sense of getting up planning one thing, and in thirty minutes, being out the door and in the car on the way to something else.  We had a great time eating and shopping–in that order–and when we left about 3;30, the line to get in was horrible.  Made me glad we went early. The shopping seemed better this year than last, or maybe I was in more of a shopping mood.  Now, here’s the funny thing.  The crowds and walking on Sunday exhausted me markedly more than moving two ton of rock on Saturday.  Go figure.  And the best part?  I slept long and deep, and had curious dreams.

Just as a reminder, if you’ve not heard, one of the stories from INTO THE WOODS (out October 9) has been released early in a special edition e-book.  Pet Shop Boys.  It also has the first chapter of EVER AFTER in it, so if you like sneak peeks, you might want to check it out.  It’s available right now.

Two teasers for the price of one

Teasers, teasers, teasers!  I got ’em today, two for the price of one!

I have been relentlessly teasing almost a year over the collection of Hollows and non Hollows shorts and novellas that culminated in INTO THE WOODS.  It’s a big one, with all the previously released bonus Hollows shorts and anthology novellas, plus a new one with Trent and Jenks stealing Lucy.  But what I’m most pleased about is the other 200 or so pages of entirely new, non-Hollows stuff.

See, I know I’m not a one-trick pony, but Rachel is a hard act to follow, so I took a summer to develop a few solid ideas that I might want to work with for the next five or six years as well as to remind myself how to write outside the Hollows.

But I said two sneak peeks, didn’t I?  Well, one of the novellas in INTO THE WOODS, Pet Shop Boys, has been released as a major teaser ebook.  Included in it is chapter one of EVER AFTER.

Here’s how you get yours:
