Discovery Friday with Rick Yancey!

November 18, 2013 at 8:59 pm (Appearances) (, , , , )

This is another one of those posts where I do a shameless plug for my workplace, but it also means good news for anyone in the area, because we have author Rick Yancey coming back to the Gainesville Barnes and Noble!

If you live anywhere near a Barnes and Noble, you might want to drop in this coming Friday, November 22nd. BN is kicking off the holiday season with Discovery Friday, a full day of activities, giveaways, contests, storytimes, and author events. You can even enter to win a $1000 shopping spree! You can check out the full array here, which will give you the listings for stores in your area.

Our location is thrilled to have Rick Yancey back with us for a talk and signing for The 5th Wave. We’ll also have the Monstrumologist and Alfred Kropp series books available. The talk will start at 7pm, followed by the signing.

If you can’t make it out? Well, we’ll miss you! But that doesn’t mean you have to miss out. Call the store any time between now and 645 pm on Friday, and you can order a personalized book over the phone, and we’ll get it shipped out to you. You can probably make it happen during the event itself, but be careful: you don’t want to call too late. We’ll have signed stock after the event, so you can still get signed (but not personalized) copies afterwards (HINT HINT: they make excellent gifts through the many approaching holidays).

If you have any questions, you can call the store, and keep an eye on the BN facebook page and the #BNDiscoveryFriday tag on Twitter for more updates and information on the giveaways and activities. (Or ask here, and I’ll answer what I can, remembering always that I am not an official spokesperson for Barnes and Noble and that my words do not represent the company, I’m getting so good at these disclaimers.)

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!
