BANG: Get It Signed on Pub Day!

Bang coverIf you’re going to be in the area of one of my tour stops for Bang, then I’ll be happy to sign your book for you. Sadly, though, I can’t be everywhere, which means I can’t sign every book.

However, some very cool folks at some great indie bookstores around the country are making it possible for you to get a signed copy of Bang on publication day!

It’s simple: All you do is go to the store (or go to their online store) and preorder a copy of Bang from them. When you get your copy on April 18, it will be signed by yours truly! Easy, right?

One caveat: You must place your preorder by Friday, April 14!

Here are the stores currently offering signed books to preorder customers:

But to hear the Administration’s drones tell the story, apparently this was Very, Very Necessary. [Read more…]



  1. A misnomer, really, as some of these are “cuts” the same way a screwdriver to the carotid is a “cut.”

Interview: Insecure Writers Support Group

Over at the IWSG, I can be seen blathering answers to questions ranging from my most prized comic book to my top piece of advice for writers. And I say stuff like this:

When I get to the end of the story and feel a sense of satisfaction, I know it’s done. It’s baked. Time to take it out of the oven and put it on a serving platter.

And this:

I just write what interests me and then cross my fingers and hope that it will interest others as well!
