Order Now: Daniel Abraham & James S.A. Corey

Hi Everyone,

It’s been a while. A lot going on.

But I’m very pleased to announce that The Signed Page has acquired signed copies of Age of Ash by Daniel Abraham and Memory’s Legion by James S.A. Corey. Both books are gorgeous, arrived undamaged with the exception of a few, and they are signed on tipped-in pages that are bound into the book.

When these are gone, they are gone. Age of Ash is the beginning of a new epic fantasy trilogy and Daniel is one of the best when it comes to that. Memory’s Legion is the Expanse short stories within one book, a perfect companion book to Leviathan Wakes.

I’ll be shipping this week for orders placed!

With Ink Magic,

Shawn

Facebook Live: Kate Elliott & Ken Liu

Hi Signed Page Friends,

The title of this blog post says it all.

I’m going to try my hand at some Facebook Lives with authors who sign at The Signed Page. And the first Facebook Live is a fantastic one! SF&F authors Kate Elliott and Ken Liu will be in conversation for the release of Kate’s new book, SERVANT MAGE. The two writers will discuss the book, SF&F, and take questions from the virtual audience.

I’ll be moderating the discussion as well as trying to read as many virtual audience questions as I can during our hour-long event.

Click HERE to join the Facebook Live Event, which will remind you on February 3rd that the event is happening. Big thank you to Tor Books for setting this up.

Here are more details about Kate and Ken:

She is best known for her Crown of Stars epic fantasy series and the New York Times bestselling YA fantasy Court of Fives. Elliot’s particular focus is immersive world-building & centering women in epic stories of adventure, amidst transformative cultural change.

Pre-Order Now: Kagen the Damned by Jonathan Maberry (Rare)

Hi Signed Book Lovers,

I’m busy today with the official hardcover release of my new science fantasy novel, The Tempered Steel of Antiquity Grey. But that won’t stop me from announcing a very cool forthcoming book that I think many of you will be very interested in.

Jonathan Maberry is one of my favorite writers. His work spans several decades. He’s been a novelist. An editor. A comic book writer. Even a non-fiction writer. Grim Oak Press is publishing one of his short stories in Lost Worlds and Mythological Kingdoms. He’s no stranger to me. But for today, I want to mention this: He’s written this meaty epic fantasy novel titled Kagen the Damned that’s publishing in May and I couldn’t be more excited about it. Here is a tagline that should catch your attention:

The Witcher meets Game of Thrones in New York Times bestselling author Jonathan Maberry’s brilliant new fantasy series, Kagen the Damned.

This signing is going to be an odd one. Jonathan lives in San Diego. I’m planning a trip with my wife to San Diego. The book and our trip align in May. I thought, “Let’s have a signing on the road for Kagen the Damned.” Jonathan agreed and, while I’ll lose some pool time as I ship books out from our hotel room, it should make for a fun signing.

Here’s the important thing: Kagen the Damned is publishing with a hardcover and softcover on the same date. What does that mean? St. Martin’s Griffin is only producing a handful of hardcovers for this release. That will make the hardcover exceedingly rare. I have to turn in my order to them on Friday this week to ensure we get those hardcover copies. I’d like to order 100 copies but that depends on pre-orders. There you go. The gauntlet has been thrown at your feet.

Pre-order Kagen the Damned in the next few days. Otherwise, I can’t guarantee anything.

More soon! Stay tuned!

With Ink Magic,
Shawn
