Last One for the Road
First up, check out what Larissa's Bookish Life and Calliope's Domaine say are the top 5 book covers so far of 2012. And see who Bibliognome picked as the top 5 favorite fictional families.
Now for some reviews. See what Geek Dad at Wired.com thought of Alexander Outland: Space Pirate by G.J. Koch (yes, moi), check out what Calliope's Domain thought of Alien Diplomacy, and then see the first review for The Night Beat up at Amazon.com.
The next stop after Comic-Con on my Split Personality Summer Signing Tour will be August 5, 2012, from 2:00-4:00 at The Poisoned Pen in Scottsdale, AZ. I'll be signing Alien Diplomacy, Alexander Outland: Space Pirate, and The Night Beat, so be there or miss out on the signing frenzy (and yes, chocolate will also be making an appearance).
Can't make it to the Greater Phoenix Metro Area next month? No worries, The Poisoned Pen has you covered. I'm totally excited to announce that The Pen's just added moi to their exclusive Autographed Editions Program where you can not only buy the books (and yes, they ship internationally) and get them signed, but you can also get them personalized, just like you were here, or there, or...well, I think you know where I'm going with this. BTW, check out the other authors on the program, because I'm sure you'll recognize their names and books.
And, to complete The Poisoned Pen Trifecta, Alexander Outland: Space Pirate was chosen as a Staff Pick by the discerning and wonderful Pat King! But that's not all! To add to the coolness and discerningness of charming guys named Patrick, Alexander Outland: Space Pirate was also chosen as a Staff Pick by Patrick Heffernan at Mysterious Galaxy Books! So, clearly, if your name is Pat, you're gonna love this book, but I think those with other names will enjoy it, too.
The Hook Me Up! exclusive contest for The Night Beat is still going strong. If you haven't entered yet, fix that situation right away! Not on? Don't delay, the contest ends July 20th. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with "Hook Me Up!" in the subject line, you'll be subscribed and the contest entry rules will be sent to you, easy peasy.
Also, awesome author Marsheila Rockwell and I are doing a dual book giveaway. You can win a copy of The Night Beat AND a copy of Skein of Shadows. First chance to win a set is at They're Biodegradeable. Get entered now, contest ends July 23rd.
Well, all that should keep all y'all busy until I get back. So, have a great rest of this week, weekend, and start of next week, and I'll catch you way on the flip side. Peace out, my li'l gangstas, and let's remember to be readers out there!
