Fairbanks book signing!

There will be a book signing event in Fairbanks, Alaska!

Where: The Fairbanks Barnes & Noble

When: 1-4pm on Friday, November 27th, 2009

What: I will definitely be signing, and my books will be for sale. I may do a reading or two, since I’ll be there a while.

Further details: The Fairbanks B&N is leaning toward mostly bringing in copies of WALKING DEAD to sell. I’m also encouraging them to stock up on first books in all of my series, but if you’re in the Fairbanks/North Pole/Nenana/etc region and would like books other than URBAN SHAMAN, WALKING DEAD, HEART OF STONE and THE QUEEN’S BASTARD, let me strongly encourage you to call then (907-452-6400) sooner rather than later to put an order in for the books you want. It’ll encourage them to have copies on hand, and they’ll be ordering books for the signing next week, so you’ll want to move briskly!

This is more so I can perhaps give the bookstores some sense of what to expect/order/etc than for my own self-aggrandizement. Regardless, I didn't put a "no" option on the 'are you attending' because I didn't figure that'd be very helpful, since most of my 600+ friends list do not live in Seattle and Fairbanks. :)

I will be attending the Fairbanks booksigning on November 27th:


I will be attending the Seattle booksigning on December 2nd:


I'm likely to:

bring all my CE Murphy books I have lovingly collected over the past four years
buy books there
stand fifteen feet away for an hour, then chicken out and run off before introducing myself

If I'm buying books, I hope:

the first book in any given series will be available
the most recent book in any given series will be available
all the books in all the series will be available
let's get real. it's a bookstore. If I'm missing any of Catie's books I'll probably buy them, but I'll be lucky to get out of the store without buying five other books too.

I am glad there's a ticky box option even if I'm not going to either of the signings:

Yay ticky boxes!
Boo ticky boxes!
