Lili St. Crow will be there too, signing DEFIANCE!
I will be there, signing MAGIC ON THE HUNT!
I hope we make Powell’s ship more books from a three-author signing event than ever before in their history! Is that even possible? I don’t know! I know Ilona Andrew’s books are wonderful, and you should totally buy a signed copy, and Lili St. Crow’s books are wonderful and you should totally buy a signed copy. And I know I need to hold up my end of the “let’s make Powell’s ship a bunch of books” bargain.
So here’s the deal: If you go to Powell’s Books website and pre-order a signed copy of MAGIC ON THE HUNT to be mailed to you, I will SIGN the book AND I will include with the book the entire first chapter of MAGIC ON THE LINE, which won’t be out until November.
MAGIC ON THE LINE hasn’t had a single excerpt revealed in print or on line anywhere. There aren’t even ARCs available yet.
For anyone who’s been a little surprised upon finding a chapter from my upcoming steampunk DEAD IRON in the back of MAGIC ON THE HUNT instead of a chapter from MAGIC ON THE LINE (and has sent me emails asking if I’m writing any more Allie books) here’s your chance to read an entire chapter of the next book!
I’m only going to print enough sample chapters for the pre-orders Powell’s Books receives. So if you want one, pre-order the signed book on or before May 31st. I’ll also have enough for people buying the book on the night of the event.
Q: If I come to the store with an already purchased MAGIC ON THE HUNT in hand for you to sign, do I get a sample chapter?
A: Yes. Because you are awesome for buying the book, and it would break my heart to tell you no.
Q: What if I already bought the book, and CAN’T come to the signing and DON’T want to order a new copy? Do I get a sample chapter?
A: First, THANK YOU for buying the book! You are also awesome! But since the whole idea is a special perk for the Powell’s Book signing…um…no.
Q: What if I think you’re totally unfair and hate you forever for excluding me from reading the sample?
A: Sigh…okay, listen. Probably around September-October I’ll post an excerpt of the upcoming book on my web page. You will get a chance to see most of what people will be reading. But it won’t be signed, lovely….or have the little bit from Chapter Two I’m might include just for fun.
Q: Are you really going to write more Allie Books?
A: Yes. Yes, I am. Nine books in total, so there are three yet to come. 🙂
