You all love signed books. That’s why you follow The Signed Page.
Well, this is my last pitch to you, true magic believer, because my signed-book Kickstarter ends in about 1/2 hour. The King-Killing Queen is a high fantasy story. It is a perfect place for you to read my work if you haven’t already. Readers who enjoy Terry Brooks or Brandon Sanderson will likely like it, in my opinion. And of course, there is The Briar-Sword Monk graphic novel and short story combo, which is a Kickstarter exclusive!
A lot of the stretch goals have opened up, either upgrading the books or adding cool swag to physical pledges. Now is the time if you are so inclined: Pledge HERE now! Also, those people who pledge get their names put into a Kickstarter Backer Appendix at the back of the book, which is pretty cool!
Thank you for supporting me over the years. I wouldn’t be able to do this with you!
The good first. This morning, I received a box of 1000 comic book bags. I ordered 1500, so I’m still short 500, but at least I can begin getting 300 or so full sets of Assassin’s Apprentice #1-3 out the door and into eager hands. I will spend this week putting the boards into the bags — something that takes a while at that amount — and will begin shipping out those first 300 sets beginning April 17th. I’ve already asked my rep where the other 500 bags are. Hope to get those around the time I’m wrapping up shipping that first wave of sets.
In Fonda Lee news, she started her tour in her home city of Portland, OR and then continued her tour outside of the Pacific Northwest. In short, she doesn’t visit the Seattle area until the end of her tour, which will be April 21st. This is 10 days after release of the book. If you can’t wait that long and wish to buy the book elsewhere, simply write me an email requesting a refund. No worries!
Okay, back to work for me. Gotta get these bags and boards put together while I answer question on my Kickstarter for my new fantasy novel, The King-Killing Queen! It’s doing well. Thank you to anyone and everyone who has backed it already! Robin Hobb and Terry Brooks are both reading it right now…
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.
