Update: Child of a Mad God Signed by R. A. Salvatore

Sometimes, planned signings do not go right.

Case in point, the signing for Child of Mad God by R. A. Salvatore.

Bob and I were to get together at Emerald City Comic Con. We did that a couple of times. But for whatever reason, the publisher of the book did not mail the books correctly. When I paid overnight shipping for them to arrive the Monday before ECCC was to start, they arrived 12 days later. In short, Bob didn’t sign books because I did not have them.

I suspect they were late for one reason and one reason only: the book went to a second printing. When I placed my order, there were 1st printings in the warehouse that quickly went to other people, leaving The Signed Page with no books. Then it took the publisher a week to get that next printing back into their warehouse and the copies shipped. That doens’t help me, obviously. I have orders for signed copies of Child of a Mad God and not only do I not have Bob Salvatore here to sign but the books are 2nd printings.

I realize some of you don’t care about the printing. But for some, it matters. If you’d like a refund for your order, just let me know via the Contact page and I’ll make it happen.

For the rest of you, I am seeing Bob in mid-May at Get Lit at the Beach. So I can get books signed then.

Also, be looking for some Salvatore news over on Grim Oak Press soon…

Updated: Full Set of Lady Trent Books Signed by Marie Brennan & Todd Lockwood

Hi All,

The generous people at Tor Books have offered up a full set of the hardcover books in the Lady Trent series! And you can win them!

This is a different sort of giveaway than I usually do though. Since the books are being supplied by a publisher, only those who buy a signed or personalized copy of Brennan’s new book Within the Sanctuary of Wings from The Signed Page will be entered to win the set of books.

The cool thing about this? Cover and interior illustration Todd Lockwood — who worked on all of the Lady Trent books — will be signing them too!

If you’ve already ordered Within the Sanctuary of Wings from The Signed Page, you are already entered to win the set. Any new orders will be entered to win as well. The contest will end May 12th and the winner will be announced then.

Pre-order HERE>!

These are beautiful books. And double-signed!

Good luck!

Shawn

UPDATE: Terry A. from Illinois won the Lady Trent set! 34 people entered the giveaway and the random number generator selected #4.
