The silly season is upon us!
You know what that means? Gifting people signed books or receiving signed books!
I will try to keep this blog update brief since I know how limited time is during the holiday season. Let me say THANK YOU for your patience this year. It has been a difficult year in the Speakman household. New baby Kael Marshall Speakman arrived in June. Lots of growth for The Signed Page and Grim Oak Press. And lots of issues with books arriving damaged, books not arriving at all, books arriving misprinted, authors getting hurt before their tour, etc. It’s been a crazy one.
With that said, I’ve finally managed to ship out the Extra Page Edition copies of The Burning White signed by Brent Weeks (got some extra copies available for purchase too now, they are on the site). Woot! That means I’m completely caught up with shipping all books, giclees, and comic books that need to be shipped. The only orders left in The Signed Page database are for Smoke Bitten by Patricia Briggs, which publishes March 2020 (if you haven’t pre-ordered that one, do so because it’s great). So yay, done, done, done! Where’s my hot buttered rum at?!
In the first week of January, I will be putting up two pre-order pages for 2020 books. These will include The Last Druid by Terry Brooks (June 2, 2020) and The Illustrated Royal Assassin by Robin Hobb (June 16, 2020). If there are other books you’d like to see on The Signed Page, post in the comments below! I’ll see what I can do!
In other news, I am making available those signed / unsigned copies The Signed Page received this year that weren’t up to snuff quality-wise. These make excellent reading copies. $10 for a hardcover, $20 for The Painted Man? Can’t beat that! Take a look what’s available here!
And finally, Grim Oak Press just received in the double-signed limited edition copies of Magician by Raymond E. Feist and artist Don Maitz! If you love that book as much as I do, head over and buy a copy! It will arrive before the holidays are finished too!
Okay, off to enjoy a book! Can’t tell you which one because I’m sworn to secrecy for a while longer. I hope all of you are having a great December, are staying warm, and reading something great!
Best Holiday Wishes,
