I’m stealing directly from Peter V. Brett’s blog to announce that I’ll be doing a signing in London!
To celebrate the UK release of CONTROL POINT, I’ll be joining Pete and Joe Abercrombie, as well as the staff of Fantasy Faction. The event will be at Blackwell’s Bookshop on Charing Cross Road. Details are below:
What: Signing with Peter V. Brett, Joe Abercrombie and Myke Cole. Here is the schedule of events:
- 6pm – 30 minute Mini-Panel
- 6:30pm – Q&A
- 6:45pm – Signings with all three authors
- 7:30pm – Mix and mingle with the authors
- 8:00pm – Post-signing get together at a place TBD
Where: Blackwell’s Bookshop, 100 Charing Cross Road, London
When: 6pm on August 17, 2012
You can RSVP to this event here.
Hope folks can make it out. I’ll be staying in London for the entire week, trying to sign as much shelf-stock as I can. I will also do my best to pay a visit to the MCA station in Woolwich, as well as stand on the Prime Meridian in Greenwich, which is a requirement for all seagoing folk.
I’m hoping to post/tweet more events as we get them set up, and I’m also hoping to greatly increase the odds of you picking up a signed copy of CONTROL POINT the next time you shop at Waterstones, Blackwells, Forbidden Planet or any other shops in the London area who carry it.
And, I figure what better way to celebrate then to give away a copy of a book by one of my favorite British authors, Mark Lawrence. Mark has graciously agreed to give a signed copy of his amazing novel, Prince of Thorns to whomever I deem worthy.
I’ve decided to do that by offering the book to the person who, in the comments section of this blog (or via email), gives me the best excuse for not being able to make the signing. I’ll pick the winner before I head off to the UK, so get those gears turning and come up with the most compelling excuse you can!
And if you’re in the UK in August and can’t come up with a good enough excuse, then I guess I’ll be seeing you on August 17th. Looking forward to it.
