Signing Date: Daughter of Darkness by Terry Brooks

Hi Everyone,

As many of you know, Terry Brooks was over at my house these last few days. He was there signing Kickstarter books.

But sadly, Terry’s publisher dropped the ball on getting me copies of Daughter of Darkness on time. They arrived today when they were supposed to arrive last Friday — and of course today is the day he is leaving for his tour. That means he won’t be able to sign the books until October 13th when he returns to Washington State. That’s our current plan. Let’s hope we can stick to it.

What does it mean? It means you won’t be receiving your signed copy until after October 13th. If that doesn’t work for you, feel free to reach out to me and I can refund your order.

More news in mid-October when the books are signed!

The Art of Prophecy by Wesley Chu

I loved attending Rose City Comic Con. The readers were enthusiastic and the authors were so happy to chat with them.

While there, I got to know Del Rey Books author Wesley Chu better. We’ve known one another for a few years — and we play fantasy football against one another with Guy Gavriel Kay and an odd assortment of incredible SF&F nerds — but hanging out at RCCC was great fun with Wes. And of course, it was wonderful talking about his brand-new book, The Art of Prophecy.

The Art of Prophecy is the first book in an amazing new series. And like Wes’s earlier work, it’s fantastic. Not only did it garner incredible reviews from Terry Brooks, Naomi Novik, Jacqueline Carey, Robin Hobb, and Peter V. Brett, but Del Rey really produced a gorgeous book. I mean, publishers RARELY add full-color map endpapers to a trade hardcover release. For something like that to happen, all departments at Del Rey had to be super excited about the book itself and the story that Wes is telling. That speaks volumes.

I have a number of signed copies. I also have a number of signed copies that were damaged from the publisher. Every time I discover a damaged copy, I’ll put it up on the website at a discount. In this way, I hope to help those of who who want a pristine copy as well as those of you who might want a perfect reading copy.

This will be the only time I have copies of The Art of Prophecy. Take advantage now!

Have a great week!
Shawn

Rose City Comic Con SIGNED Stock Available Now

Hi Signed Book Friends,

Last weekend’s Rose City Comic Con was great fun. Thank you to everyone who came out. And especially to the authors, who spent a lot of time at our booth talking with readers, signing books, and being awesome.

Now that I’m returned home and have gone through my inventory, I can share what we have available. The only author who hasn’t signed stock yet is Terry Brooks, who will be signing in about two weeks when he signs copies of Daughter of Darkness. For him, I’ll have copies of The Annotated Sword of Shannara, Landover trade paperback omnibuses, paperbacks of the first three Shannara novels, and some other goodies. Otherwise, feel free to take a look at the EXPLOSION of signed stock on the website!

Click HERE. Let’s hope I got the inventory numbers right! I highly recommend the signed Robin Hobb mass market paperbacks. Perfect gifts for this upcoming holiday season.

Happy Weekend,

Shawn
