Yesterday, the amazing Patricia Briggs stopped by to sign over 500 copies of her new Mercy Thompson book, Soul Taken. It was a lovely afternoon of signing, chatting, and frozen yogurt. Patty is one of those people I call a friend friend. She’s loves my wife, she loves my kids, and she tolerates me. Can’t ask for much more than that!
But first, I want to share that I’ve begun shipping. It is going to take me about 7 days to finish shipping these hundreds of books.
A reminder: Please don’t write me asking where your book is or when it will ship. It merely slows me down and further delays you getting your book. Nobody wants that right?
It is 2020! And the New Year starts off with Druid magic and an assassin’s life!
I will start with The Last Druid by Terry Brooks. This book is the culmination of over 40 years of Shannara! It concludes The Fall of Shannara series, which is also the chronological end of one of the most beloved fantasy epics of all time. Terry will personalize 100 copies of The Last Druid, and he will sign many more on top of that. The book publishes June 2, 2020 and I’m hoping to have Terry sign early so I can ship books out close to release date. Pre-order your signed copy of The Last DruidHERE.
The Signed Page also still has some signed copies of The Skaar Invasion, Book 2 of The Fall of Shannara. Add a copy to your pre-order receipt for The Last Druid!
Now to Robin Hobb, one of my favorite people and a fantastic author. Del Rey Books created The Illustrated Assassin’s Apprentice last year, the first book in her Farseer series. Now the publisher is producing a beautiful edition of the second book in the series—The Illustrated Royal Assassin! Robin will also be personalizing only 100 copies but she will be signing many more. You can pre-order your signed copy of The Illustrated Royal AssasinHERE.
And one last piece of news to share. Peace Talks by Jim Butcher is publishing this summer. The new Dresden Files novel is one of the biggest releases of the year. The Signed Page has requested Jim stop by to sign copies. I should know more about that by the end of April. But Ace is doing something really cool to celebrate 20 years of Dresden. They are producing a comic con exclusive hardcover edition of Storm Front, the first book in the series! These will only be available at conventions apparently.
But the fine folks at Ace are giving The Signed Page 50 copies outside of the convention circuit, which Jim will sign at Emerald City Comic Con in March! Since I could easily sell 1000 of these, I’m making this fair for everyone. On January 13th, I will accept entries via a contact form for people who are interested in buying this special edition of Storm Front. No idea what the price will be because I need to find out how much Ace will be selling them to me for. Be looking to enter to buy the book in one week!
Here’s to a great 2020! More magic coming! Thank you all for continuing to support The Signed Page!
