Several people have asked if they can still get a signed copy of Royal Assassin, the Illustrated Edition.
The answer is yes.
Although we cannot do a public reading and signing as I've done so often at University Book Store, the store IS taking orders for Royal Assassin. And if you wish, in the 'comments' section of your book order, write in that you'd like it signed. If you want it signed a certain way, please be very specific, as in, "To Amanda, Happy Birthday."
(I must admit, it feels a bit awkward when someone asks me to write, "To Herman, my first and only love!" And then I sign it Robin Hobb! So maybe that could be, To Herman, beloved of Sally." )
I will note that you can order ANY Robin Hobb book from University Book Store and they will do their best to get it for you. Of course, they'll do that for any book you want by any author!
Here's a direct link to the Royal Assassin page on the UBS website.
Many thanks to the people who asked about this. Duane, my favorite book seller, and I will make this happen. Somehow! I will probably go in masked and sit down with a stack of books and a pen. But we will make it happen.
