Announcing New Signings

Hi Friends,

A lot to be excited about in 2021 and these forthcoming signed books!

First, the amazing Jeff VanderMeer has offered to sign Hummingbird Salamander, his new book. Those of you who follow me know of my love for everything that Jeff writes. He’s simply one of the best in the business. But this book publishes in eight days. So if you are going to order this book, you’d better do it now. Because I will only order how many copies I need for the release at the end of the week.

After that, things get a little more manageable. Here is a list of all books that I just added:

Pretty exciting line-up, huh? These writers are all amazing and it feels like a perfect storm having them on The Signed Page at the same time. There are some others that will be added later this year when we get closer to their late-year publication dates.

A REMINDER THOUGH: If you order books on the same receipt, they will all ship together when the last book is signed. An example: If you order Hummingbird Salamander and Child of Light on the same receipt, Hummingbird Salamander will ship in October when Child of Light publishes.

Okay, back to work for me. But yeah… this is amazing. Hope this makes you guys happy!

With Magic,

2021 Signings & Kickstarter

Hi Everyone,

Wow, it has been a long time since I updated this blog! That’s how busy I’ve been, I guess!

Just a few things I want to mention. I’ve just ordered copies of Small Magic by Terry Brooks, The Illustrated Assassin’s Quest by Robin Hobb, and Wild Sign by Patricia Briggs. These all publish in March and that’s when they will be signed and shipped.

Indomitable on the Kickstarter!

I believe The Illustrated Assassin’s Quest is already on its way to me. Small Magic will be right after that. And I’ll get them both signed and shipped out first. Wild Sign publishes later in the month and copies are having to be sent to Patricia Briggs directly for signing. Then I have to go pick them up four hours away. So shipping those out might be delayed a bit but I’m going to get it done as fast as I can.

What’s on my 2021 of signed books after those? I have quite a few that will be signed on the dust jacket or on tip-ins bound into the book. Child of Light will be signed on title page. Here is a list of those I will be posting for pre-order soon:

  • The Wisdom of Crowds by Joe Abercrombie
  • Child of Light by Terry Brooks
  • Leviathan Falls by James S. A. Corey
  • Dune: The Lady of Caladan by Brian Herbert & Kevin J. Anderson
  • Goblin by Josh Malerman
  • The Last Graduate by Naomi Novik
  • Sidewinders by Robert V.S. Redick
  • Fugitive Telemetry by Martha Wells
  • The Book of Accidents by Chuck Wendig

Any of those make you interested? Anything else you’d like me to look into? Let me know the title and author!

I want to mention one more cool thing going on. Terry Brooks and I have launched a Kickstarter in support of special editions of The Scions of Shannara and the short story Indomitable. There are tiers for everyone. Those who love The Signed Page might like the first and second tiers. Tier 1 is $50 and it features a signed and illustrated copy of The Scions of Shannara. Tier 2 is $75 and it features the signed Scions along with a signed and illustrated copy of Indomitable.

Hope you are well! More news soon!

New Signings: Hobb, Kay, Wendig

A little bit of news to share with all of you!

I am now accepting pre-orders for signed copies of Assassin’s Apprentice: The Illustrated Edition by Robin Hobb, A Brightness Long Ago by Guy Gavriel Kay, and Wanderers by Chuck Wendig! These are the kinds of books that speak for themselves. I shouldn’t have to sell it very hard for you to order them.

Assassin’s Apprentice is one of the most important books in genre’s history, a book beloved by millions including George R. R. Martin. Hobb has always been a wonderful storyteller and this is the book that started it all. It is also the first time a trade hardcover of Fitz’s first book is publishing in the US. And it’s illustrated! Can’t recommend this one enough.

A Brightness Long Ago continues Guy Gavriel Kay’s amazing career in new, dazzling ways. He is one of my favorite writers, able to blend beautiful prose alongside great character development. And his worldbuilding is top notch. Guy takes his time writing novels — several years between publications. It means he publishes at the highest quality imaginable and you can start almost anywhere in his bibliography. I haven’t read this one yet but I can’t wait for it. A Kay book is always one to celebrate — especially signed!

And finally, Mr. Wendig. Chuck is one of my favorite people. He writes really diverse novels, with excellent characters. But this book — Wanderers — is going to be his breakout book. It’s fantastic. It is also 800 pages and it is already getting accolades and great reviews. And not only that, but Hollywood just optioned the book last week. Definitely worth your time for this one, folks!

There you have it. Some great new books! I’d recommend not ordering Assassin’s Apprentice with anything else since it doesn’t publish until October. But the Kay and Wendig books are publishing close enough to one another that saving on shipping by combining books makes sense.

I’m going to try to fly to NYC this week to see Donato for that Middle-Earth book! Pictures and more details coming soon on that front!

Hope you are reading something great!
