Update: Kate Elliott & Robin Hobb

Hi Everyone,

This is an update about The Keeper’s Six signed by Kate Elliott and Issues #1-3 of Assassin’s Apprentice signed by Robin Hobb.

I have shipped copies of The Keeper’s Six to Kate Elliott. I’m sure she will get them soon, sign, and return with amazing speed. I hope to have these shipped out in the next two weeks as long as I get them back. More news on that when it happens.

First off, everything is fine with Robin Hobb’s signing. Well, mostly fine. After family matters and a COVID diagnosis got in the way for Robin to sign, I got shingles and also got COVID. It’s been really frustrating, as I’m only one person. I don’t have a team to ship for me. So this has slowed things down.

The good news? Robin has signed all issues #1-3 and I have them back in my possession. That’s the good news. The not-good news? Diamond Distributors — who I order the comic books and bags/boards from — has run out of bags. I have 1000 boards sitting here without bags to put them in. And since I believe strongly that every comic book that leaves me should be bagged & boarded for protection, this too has delayed the shipping. Considering that I ordered the boards and bags back on February 23rd, I wrote Diamond yesterday asking for an update when they will ship. Hopefully they will get that resolved soon.

In short, you will be getting your Issues #1-3. Just later than planned due to life getting in the way.

If you have any questions or if you want a refund, just ask. I’m always around.

New Signings: Dune, Elliott, Lee, Weeks

Hi Everyone,

Hope this finds you well and reading something wonderful!

I’m sharing news about signed books, of course — some that are in stock, others that are forthcoming! First, I met up with Brian Herbert last week and he signed copies of Sands of Dune as well as Dune: Heir of Caladan by Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson. These are in stock and shipping now.

On the pre-order front, I’m excited to share that Kate Elliott, Fonda Lee, and Brent Weeks will be signing their respective new books. Kate Elliott is first with The Keeper’s Six, which published this week. I’ll be sending her copies next week and it will take about ten days to get them back after she signs. This one will take a little while but will be worth it, as Kate’s novella/short novel work is exquisite. And if you are going to order this one, please do it this week so I can know how many copies to mail Kate.

Next up is Fonda Lee, who has quickly become one of my favorite writers. Thankfully she lives in the Pacific Northwest like me, which means we can get together for this signing. Untethered Sky is her new novella and if you love high fantasy, I think this will be up your alley. Manticores and rocs and a young woman flying the skies? I mean, yes!

Then there’s that handsome bloke Brent Weeks. He’s returned to his break-out debut universe with Night Angel Nemesis. It is a Goliath of a book at 848 pages, but that just means you are getting a lot of assassinations for the price! Brent also lives in the Pacific Northwest and we are planning some fun things for the signing. If you haven’t read the Night Angel trilogy, do it. It’s great. But I have a feeling Night Angel Nemesis is a good jumping on point too.

There you have it. The first pre-orders of 2023! I have more planned. Stay tuned! And as usual, if you have any questions, feel free to ask. I’m always around.

Back to work for me!

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.
