Well, it’s only *2 days* until the official release of CONTROL POINT (though a few people are reporting they are getting copies they ordered in the mail already). I’ve blocked out Tuesday, the 31st to hit every bookstore I can (the few that are left) and sign as many copies as possible. If you live in New York City, your chances of being able to get a signed copy are going to be pretty good.
But even if you don’t live in New York City, I still want you to be able to get a signed copy. To that end, I’ve had bookplates printed up. These plates have adhesive backs, so you can stick them in the inside cover of your book. I will sign, date and/or personalize these bookplates however you want. If you want an autographed book plate, just email me at myke (at) mykecole (dot) com and let me know how you want it personalized (if at all) and whether or not you want it dated. Then, give me your address and I’ll mail it to you. This is all free of charge. Postage is on me. Please specify whether you want the SOC or the Shadow Coven logo on your bookplate. I have plenty of both.
That said, you need to take a second in your email and let me know who you are. I apologize for adding that hurdle in there, but it’s necessary to avoid getting bombarded by bots that troll the web, looking for giveaways/free stuff. I want to ensure that these autographed bookplates are only going to real readers of CONTROL POINT. (Just put a note in your email saying “Hi! I’m so-and-so from wherever and I actually own a copy of CONTROL POINT. I’d love to have a signed bookplate” or something like that).
For those of you who only eRead, I will sign your Kindle, Nook, iPad, Kobo or other eDevice using metallic ink pens, but I need you to catch me at a con, signing or reading for that! Check out my SITREP page for upcoming appearances. The bookplates will stick just fine to any eReader as well.
One last plug before I go: the cover for CONTROL POINT is well in the lead on the Qwillery’s debut author cover wars contest! If you can find the time to head over and
vote, I’d be grateful. This is less for me and my writing, and more for Michael Komarck and his incredible cover art. You can check out more of Mike’s work at his website. I love CONTROL POINT’s cover and am a huge fan of Komarck’s work and I really, really want to see him win.
All right! Two days to zero. Here’s hoping that if you have a copy of CONTROL POINT and you can’t catch up to me in person, that you’ll drop me an email and let me sign a bookplate for you. If you’re reading the novel, that means you’re helping to make my life’s dream possible, and that means I owe you.
And I always pay my debts. Thanks.
