Shipping Updates: Abercrombie, Brom, Corey, Dune, Novik

Hi Everyone,

Well, I got sick. My son brought it home from school. Thankfully, it isn’t COVID. But I’m feeling pretty rotten right now which doesn’t bode well for shipping books.

That said, here is an update with what is going on with the various books:

  • The Wisdom of Crowds by Joe Abercrombie: These books as well as the Corey books went missing in transit. When they resurfaced, half appeared at The Signed Page and half got shipped to Grim Oak Press three hours away. No idea why. And the books were damaged. Thankfully, I’ve shipped out most of the orders because I had enough. I’m shipping the books I do have while I await new copies from the publisher. Hope that will happen next week some time.
  • Slewfoot by Brom: Brom has finished signing the 600 copies and I’ve finished shipping out all orders that aren’t waiting on other books to be completed. I have about 70 copies left and about the same amount of damaged books I’ll be offering at a discount. More on that soon.
  • Leviathan Wakes 10th Anniversary by James S.A. Corey: These books as well as the Abercrombie books went missing in transit. When they resurfaced, half appeared at The Signed Page and half got shipped to Grim Oak Press three hours away. No idea why. And the books were damaged. For Levaithan Wakes, 8/10 books were severely damaged. I’m shipping the books I do have while I await new copies from the publisher. Hope that will happen next week some time.
  • Dune: Lady of Caladan by Brian Herbert & Kevin J. Anderson: Books arrived finally on Thursday. I went through them to remove the damaged copies, took the good dust jackets of the books, and I’m merely waiting on Kevin to have time to sign. Then the dust jackets will go to Brian. Once he’s finished signing, I’ll drive up to grab them from him. Hope this will take about two weeks.
  • The Last Graduate by Naomi Novik: Books arrived finally on Friday. I went through them to remove the damaged copies, took the good dust jackets off the books, and have them boxed up. They will mail to Naomi tomorrow. Then, depending on her wrist and signing, she’ll send them back and I’ll ship. No timeline for this one.

There’s an update. The best I can do at this time. I’m update more once I know more from Orbit Books about the damaged copies I received. Like always, when your order ships, you will receive an email with tracking information.

Okay, back to bed for me. At least I’m reading something great… the omega editing read of Grim Oak Press’s special edition for Tailchaser’s Song by Tad Williams.

More soon,
Shawn

New Signing: Joe Abercrombie

Hi Signed Page Fans,

Just a quick notice to share that The Signed Page will have copies of The Wisdom of Crowds signed by Joe Abercrombie on a signature page bound into the book by Orbit. This will match what was done on the previous two volumes The Signed Page has carried.

Pre-order linky here: http://signedpage.com/product/the-wisdom-of-crowds-by-joe-abercrombie/

The book publishes September 14th and The Signed Page should get copies around then.

Happy Wednesday!

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!
