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:

The KILLERS Tour Continues!

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water… (Hat tip to Jaws 2…)

The “KILLER Time” Tour isn’t over just because April is over. Oh, no. There are still some events to be had. Check out my calendar for all of the details, but here’s the basics:

  • May 5: Hudson Children’s Book Festival, Hudson, NY
  • May 19: Teen Book Festival, Rochester, NY
  • May 20: river’s end bookstore, Oswego, NY (with Terry Trueman, Melissa Walker, and Laurie Halse Anderson!)
  • May 25: Changing Hands Bookstore, Tempe, AZ (with Lisa McMann!)
  • May 26: Maricopa County Library District Book Fest, Phoenix, AZ

Whew! Come on out and have some fun! (And check back later for details on the June events!)


I am thrilled to announce the first dates in what we jokingly refer to in the Lyga house as the “It’s Killer Time! Tour.” (Those of you born after the ’80s probably won’t get that…)

These are not all of the dates, mind you, but they are the very first events and the ones I can mention right now. I’ll add more as I know about them. And, of course, you can always check my event calendar for updates.

If I won’t be coming to your city or town, believe me — I’m really sorry. I wish I could come and visit every reader personally, but I can’t. However, if you want a signed copy of the book when it’s released and you’re not on the tour schedule, there is a way for that to happen. Simply visit this page and the lovely folks at WORD bookstore will help you out!
