Well, the 11th is coming at me like a freight train, so it’s time to do a few reminders of where you can get a signed book.
If you cannot come to a signing, but would still like a personalized and signed first edition hardback, delivered to your door in pristine condition, then your best bet is The Signed Page. This is a website operated by Shawn Speakman that specializes in signed first editions for fantasy and SF bibliophiles. Books are signed and then meticulously packed and shipped so there is never a wrinkle or torn cover.
For those in the Seattle area, on the 11th of August, at 7 PM, I will be signing at University Book Store. I always enjoy my time here. As usual, I will have a door prize basket. To enter, make a purchase at the bookstore, write your name on the back of the receipt and drop it in the basket. Contents of basket will be revealed later! 1.800.335.7323 | 4326 University Way, N.E. – Seattle, Washington 98105 If you cannot attend that evening, you can order the book from the bookstore, and I will personalize it to you. Then you can either pick it up or have it shipped to you.
On Saturday the 15th of August, I will wander down to the Barnes & Noble in Olympia Washington. I love this store and will probably linger afterwards for coffee at the in-store coffee shop! 1530 Black Lake Blvd SW, Olympia, WA 98502 360-534-0388
And finally, in September on the 9th, I will trek down to Beaverton, Oregon to sign at Powell’s books. This is a wonderful bookstore, fat with books both used and new. Powell’s Books at Cedar Hills Crossing
3415 SW Cedar Hills Blvd. Beaverton, OR 97005 It will be 7 PM on a Wednesday, September 9th.
And after that? Well, look for me at Jet City Comic Con in Tacoma, on Halloween! But I’ll make a separate post on that when we are a bit closer to the date.
Thanks to everyone who wondered enough to ask!
