Preferably still attached to your heads, but I'll take what I can get.
Lots of you have asked me how to get your copies of Skary Childrin and the Carousel of Sorrow signed, which makes me smile from ear to ear, and smiling that wide makes my face hurt. But enough of you have asked that I thought it high time I just posted the info publicly so that you have quicker access to it. If you've got a copy of the book, and you'd like to have it signed by me, here's what you do:
1. Mail your copy of the book to me along with a prepaid self-addressed envelope that's big enough to hold the book. If you're in the US, it's easiest if you use a Priority Mail flat rate envelope. Send it to:
ADDRESS TBA (I've closed the old box.)
2. Email me to let me know you've sent me something so that I'll know to go and actually, you know, check my mail. If you don't do this, you're at the mercy of my laziness.
3. Be sure to let me know what name to sign the book to and if there's any special message you want me to write. Otherwise, I'll just make out the inscription to the name on your return address.
And that's it! Easy, isn't it?
The book launch for Skary Childrin and the Carousel of Sorrow at Metropolis Books last night was amazing! Not only did Metropolis sell totally out of books in a flash, but I got to meet and chat with a bunch of you that I've previously only seen online. It was wonderful to see your faces out there, knowing you made it despite the unforgivable heat outside and the distance some of you drove to get there. I'm only sorry the books were all gone before the rest of you were able to pick up a copy! If you didn't already place an order with Julie at Metropolis Books for yours, I believe you can still do so (but hurry - our beloved Metropolis is shutting its doors after September), or - for those of you who aren't quite so local - check with your nearest bookstore or order online. I have a few pictures from the event that I'm still putting together, but I had to go ahead and post this one because it makes me look like Count(ess) Orlok (taken by my friend Ashley with her phone). Check out my twin in the background there.
