Happy Monday! And in this case, it’s a Cyber Monday! Woo!
I will try to keep this brief, because we all are very busy. I’d be remiss not to mention the deals we have going on at Grim Oak Press (10% off limited and trade hardcover editions) and The Signed Page (20% off all in-stock SF&F books). Click the links to view details! Some great books available, especially over at Grim Oak.
In other news, for those of you who backed my new novel’s Kickstarter or who may be interested in learning more about it, today is the last day to order your copy of The Tempered Steel of Antiquity Grey or any of the Add-On items in the BackerKit. Want to learn more about the book, which authors blurbed it, the artwork, etc.? Click HERE to visit the Kickstarter page. Already know about it but want to order it or buy some add-on merchandise? Click HERE to visit the BackerKit page.
And lastly, Grim Oak Press is working with Patrick Rothfuss on this year’s Worldbuilders charity drive to benefit Heifer International. The drive begins tomorrow. I can’t share what my part in this is yet. Needless to say, if you strike me down, I will become more powerful than you can possibly imagine. No wait… wrong movie. Let’s just say follow Worldbuilders beginning tomorrow and the days to come. Excited to share what we have going on but it will be several days yet before we do!
Be safe out there! Stay home as much as you can. Read as many great books as you can. We will overcome COVID. Know I care about all of you and let’s try to spread as much cheer as possible rather than the virus!
Best Holiday Wishes,
It’s that time of year again! Black Friday & Cyber Monday!
The Signed Page is offering 20% off books and comic books that are In Stock right now (that means no discount for books that are on pre-order right now like Wild Sign, Assassin’s Quest, Farseer Trilogy, Dune, etc. etc.). This is great way to fill out your own signed-book collections or to buy gifts for others this holiday season. The sale begins 8:00 AM PT on Black Friday and it ends Cyber Monday at 11:59 PM PT.
The coupon code will be live during those times and it is: 20percentoff
Enter that coupon code at the checkout phase upon clicking the link after “Have a coupon?” It’s that easy. Orders not waiting on other books will ship out that following week!
Two new additions I want to highlight. I’ve posted Shannara Con copies of The Last Druid signed by Terry Brooks. These copies were signed on a signature sheet that got inserted and bound into the finished book. And I received more signed copies of The Illustrated Assassin’s Apprentice by Robin Hobb. While the publisher was sold out of first printings, I found these first printing copies at my book distributor! Woo! So now you can order the full set of Farseer trilogy books (no, I will not combine orders and reimburse shipping as that is far too much work for me to take on right now… I can barely keep my name straight!).
If you have any questions, do let me know. It’s been a tough year when it comes to author signings — no one is touring, obviously — but at least we have these Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals!
I hope those of you in the United States enjoyed Thanksgiving yesterday! I have a lot to be thankful for and you guys are part of that!
On to this year’s Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals! Let me say that this deal will last the entire weekend, from Friday through Monday. I’ve tried to keep it simple this year since I don’t have a whole lot of stock on hand. But I think I’ve struck a good balance of discounted items and a free chapbook!
What is the chapbook? It is two chapters from my new SF&F novel The Tempered Steel of Antiquity Grey. It is the first 64 pages, about 1/6 of the book. I only printed 200 of these. 50 went to Grim Oak Press for our Mystery Boxes there (better click on this link to see those!). I gave away 50 at a recent Powell’s Books signing. Which leaves only 100 available on The Signed Page!
First, you can buy the chapbook outright for $10. Many of you already have the books that I am featuring on the website this weekend. So I wanted you to be able to buy it.
Second, if you want the chapbook for FREE — yes, I said FREEEEEE — you can place at least 2 of the on-sale products in the shopping cart, add the chapbook into the shopping cart too, and enter in the coupon code “2019chapbook” without quotes to get the $10 subtracted off your total!
And as I’ve inferred up above, I’ve put on sale all books that I have in stock. So that’s just another way to save! But sadly, I don’t have a lot of stock on hand for many of these, so when they are gone they are gone-gone!
Happy Black Friday! Stay sane out there this weekend and make it to Cyber Monday! We are just entering the holiday season and it’s important to pace yourself!
Be safe! Be well! Be reading something amazing!
