Sometimes signings don’t go as planned because life gets in the way.
When Robin Hobb offered to personalize 25 sets of her Farseer trilogy, the books were going to be published and sent to me in December. That did not happen, which has pushed back the signing. I received the books three weeks ago finally but Robin had to wait until she had finished her edits on her book. Then a snowstorm hit, pushing us even farther back, to the point I didn’t have time to ship the books out before having to go on a business trip with my wife.
The books are signed. They will ship out next week when we return home. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
2017 is here and with it forthcoming signed books!
To give you all an additional resource on The Signed Page, I have created a new website page titled Signing Dates, featuring forthcoming 2017 signings and their scheduled dates. This will help you keep track at a glance what books are being signed and on what dates.
For 2017, below is a list of authors either stopping by The Signed Page or signing books through the mail:
The pre-order periods for these books are now live. It looks like 2017 is already starting off right!
More news soon. Stay tuned!
While I am still re-designing The Signed Page and getting it back up to some form of speed for its new debut on Monday, I thought it a good time to update you with details about the Robin Hobb signing, the last event I had planned for 2016.
Subterranean Press is producing beautiful editions of the original Farseer trilogy. I can’t wait to receive mine. I am a huge fan of the series and, that coupled with new John Howe artwork and Sub Press working their magic, I just had to beg the publisher for at least 25 sets for you all. The original date of publication was set for December but that has obviously come and gone. Can’t rush quality, in my opinion. I’ve learned that with Grim Oak Press.
Sub Press told me this morning that the Robin Hobb books should be ready to ship within three weeks. When I receive them, I will post about it and then visit Robin. She will personalize the copies and then I’ll ship them out. I’ll be sure to take some photos.
On the morrow, I will write up a post about what signings we have coming this year. Then the pre-order periods for those books will go live on Monday. And wow, are there some great ones already!
Thank you for your patience while I improve The Signed Page website on the surface as well as at its foundation!
