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. She lives in Hawaii, where she paddles outrigger canoes & spoils her Schnauzer.

New Signing: Servant Mage by Kate Elliott

Hi Signed Page Friends,

The amazing Kate Elliott has offered to sign copies of her new book, Servant Mage. You can read more about it on the pre-order page HERE. It is a 172-page hardcover that has been wonderfully blurbed by some great writers and bloggers. I’m eager to read it. I thought you might be too.

It publishes in January, to be signed by February 1st. Since the book is only 172 pages, it is smallish, which allows me to ship the books directly to Kate for signing. That means these copies can be signed and/or personalized on the title page.

Only 100 copies available. I can’t very well ship Kate more than that without killing her back moving four boxes.

With Ink Magic,
Shawn
