The Mother of All Book-Signings
I’m supposed to have physical copies of DUST (both Ugly and Sublime) on Wednesday, August 7th. Later that evening, I’ll be signing books and packing them up for shipping out to you all. Assisting me in this endeavor will be my mother and editor, Gay.
My mom used to own a yarn shop in Charleston (she recently closed the shop). In addition to wool (heh), she also carried my books. I arrived here in West Jefferson this past weekend with the remaining stock of her books. It includes quite a few of the original MOLLY FYDE books with the covers I made (the ones that feature Amber’s hands and feet). And even a dozen or so of the NorLights Press editions that have both Amber and myself on the cover (embarrassing!)
There are some of the individual WOOL books here as well, a few of #1, and a handful of the others. Some HURRICANE and PLAGIARIST. The new HALF WAY HOME covers (with a matte finish; they’re badass), and the new SHIFT. You can see it all in the picture.
What I’m working on is a way to sell this pile of books while we’re packing up copies of DUST. The entire unboxing and signing process will be live-streamed on YouTube via Google Hangouts. You’ll be able to chat with us, ask questions, request a doodle in your book, and hopefully pick up one of these surplus babies if you want. It’s a bookstore signing coming to every living room on planet Earth (which means: the six living rooms who will actually care about any of this).
But my mom will be there, so I’m calling it The Mother of All Book Signings. Probably doing this from 6:00 PM EST to 10:oo PM, so that you cats can get home from work and those on the Left Coast can join in. See you there!
