Hi Fellow Bibliophiles,
I am excited to share that The Signed Page has hired its first employee.
It might surprise many of you that The Signed Page has been a one-man effort for twenty years. It was. Life evolves though, and it is time for help. My writing career has grown to the point where I need to focus on writing every day. That is hard to do when there are some months where I spend 60 hours a week shipping books. While a part of me loves that kind of work, I must let it go.
Thankfully, I didn’t have to look too far for help. Sydney watched my young sons several years ago, and she now works the front desk at my wife’s salon. Why is Sydney perfect for this new job? She already has an idea of the work I did when shipping, she has an attention to detail that matches my own, and she works with a sense of urgency. All were important in hiring her.
And so far, she’s done an amazing job these last two weeks. She helped ship out Slewfoot by Brom, Child of Light by Terry Brooks, and The Last Graduate by Naomi Novik. That’s a lot of books shipped out. I couldn’t be happier.
So please welcome Sydney to The Signed Page!
Onward to a fun offering. Today, I want to highlight one of our titles for those of you looking for something new to read. We have 32 slightly-damaged copies of The Desert Prince by Peter V. Brett on sale for $15. It is the first book of a new trilogy, and it is the perfect place to jump into Peter’s work. Most of the copies have small bumping on the spine. Otherwise, they are really nice copies ready for your reading pleasure.
Happy Friday! I hope you’ll be reading something great this weekend. I’ll be wrapping up the omega proofread on Grim Oak’s Tailchaser’s Song by Tad Williams. And then I’ll roll right into his new Brothers of the Wind!
