A couple of very quick things regarding Zoe’s Tale:
1. To the folks who won the ZT contest a couple of weeks ago: I still haven’t mailed out your books. Yeah, I know, I suck. I’ll get them out today or tomorrow. I swear.
2. Folks have been asking how they might get hold of autographed copies of Zoe’s Tale. Well, one way to do that is to see me at ArmadilloCon, which happens the weekend before the official release (which means it’s a very good bet there will be copies in the dealer’s room — and if there aren’t I’ll probably yell at someone). I’ll also be undertaking a small regional appearance schedule with Tobias Buckell (whose Sly Mongoose will be released the same day), where naturally we will sign copies of our books. More details on appearances will be forthcoming.
Aside from that, I’ve been talking to a local bookseller here about the possibility of them taking pre-orders for Zoe’s Tale, and then I would come into the store to sign the copies, and then they would ship them out to you wherever you might be. We’re still looking at the logistics of that, but if we get it all squared away I’ll give you the details in short order, possibly as early as next week.
