BEA and Swag!

May 26, 2013 at 7:10 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , , )

Sorry for the relative darkness here and on Twitter recently; I’ve spent the past week switching between work and the hospital (as a visitor, not a patient), so I haven’t been able to attend to a number of other things.




BEA is THIS WEEK, can you believe it?! So, just as a reminder, I’ll be signing Thursday morning, from 10-11 am, at Table #5 in the Author Autographing Area. I’ll also be wandering around the floor for the afternoon, and I will have swag packets with me. How many? As many as I can manage to shove into my bag without damaging anything.


So, if you happen to see me on the floor after the signing, just introduce yourself and ask for a swag pack! I will keep handing them out until I run out, and hopefully I won’t have to figure out how to take any home. These swag packs include: signed bookmarks, a signed bookplate, a sticker, and a (pretty awesome, if I do say so myself) keychain.


Not going to BEA? Don’t fret, you can still request an e-ARC through NetGalley, and a bit later this summer I’ll be doing a super swag-tastic giveaway, so you don’t have to worry about missing out!


If you are going to BEA, please introduce yourselves if you see me! You’ve been amazing and supportive and so excited for me, and I know a hello and a thank you and maybe a hug (if that’s not creepy and unwelcome) is small repayment, but seriously- THANK YOU.


Until next time~

Signed Copies of The 5th Wave!

May 16, 2013 at 7:04 pm (Appearances) (, , )

Last week, our store sponsored a signing with Rick Yancey, author of The 5th Wave, The Alfred Kropp series, and the Monstrumologist series, and oh, guys, it was awesome. If you ever have a chance to hear that man speak, DON’T MISS IT. He’s personable and incredibly smart and laid back, and a fifty minute talk felt like fifteen.


Plus, the man is an autographing BEAST. We had a WALL of The 5th Wave that had to have at least three hundred copies, and he signed the WHOLE WALL.

So what does this mean for you?

Well, if you missed the event and don’t think your path is going to cross with his while he’s on tour, it means we have a TON of signed copies, and you can get one (or more)! Just call the Gainesville Barnes & Noble at 352.372.3535 and we can process an order over the phone for one of the autographed copies and get it shipped out to you.

And if you get a chance to meet him on tour, like I said, don’t let it slip by. He makes the first four waves sound terrifying plausible.

Until next time!

Rick Yancey and The 5th Wave- signing!

May 3, 2013 at 7:36 pm (Appearances) (, , )

So, those of you who’ve been with me for a while (thank you for that, by the way!) know that I work in a bookstore. I’ve never actually named which one, largely for disclaimer purposes, but the cat was going to be coming out of the bag pretty soon anyway. Now, a quick note about that disclaimer: this blog, and in fact my entire social media presence, IS NOT affiliated with Barnes & Noble in any way- this is a separate thing, an extension of my personal life and my professional life only insofar as it pertains to my writing/publishing, and is not meant to represent or speak for the company IN ANY WAY.

That being said, holy frickin’ crap, RICK YANCEY is coming to the Gainesville, FL Barnes & Noble to sign The 5th Wave!

The 5th Wave

In addition to The 5th Wave, which is one of the spring’s most talked about YA books, Mr. Yancey is also the author of the Monstrumologist series and the Alfred Kropp adventures. The 5th Wave releases THIS Tuesday, 7 May, and Mr. Yancey will be at the Gainesville Barnes & Noble on THURSDAY, 9 May, starting at 7pm. We will have TONS of copies of the book, so if you live in or near the Florida Gainesville (because seriously, there are a lot of Gainesvilles in the south), stop in, get your copy, and get it signed!

If you have questions about the event, the store’s number is 352.372.3535, and I REALLY hope to see some of you there!

A Wounded Name on NetGalley!

May 1, 2013 at 4:34 pm (A Wounded Name) (, , )

Yeh, this is pretty much what the title says.

A Wounded Name just went up on NetGalley! If you have a NetGalley account (or feel like quickly creating one) YOU TOO can request to read it a whole THREE MONTHS EARLY. The book doesn’t actually come out until September, but that doesn’t have to stop you.

Check it out! And, in the meantime, I’ll be over here dancing like a madman at this further bit of proof that this is a Real Thing.

And don’t forget, if you’re a physical copy type of person, I’ll signing ARCs at BEA on Thursday, May 30th, from 10-11am at Table #5 in the Author Autograph Area. If you’re going to be attending BEA, swing by and get a book! Get a signature! Get a hug!

Until next time~
