I’m signing all these books. Because they were pre-ordered by nice folks. Thank you, nice people. But yeah, this is gonna take me all day.
Oh the burden of success
Good luck John!
I am looking forward to my pre-ordered Nook copy.
I am also working on getting my wife into Old Man’s War. She loves dry, sarcastic characters so I have hope that it will work!
I have spent my day doing admin work…
Are some of those for Subterranean? Then one of them is for meeeee!
Make sure you have a pitcher of ice water. For your writing hand.
Your hand is gonna be so sore. Can’t wait to get my copy!!!
Not a bad problem to have.
Cool! I mean that you are selling books, not hand soreness.
For a second, it looked like piles of voting ballots. And I thought No John Scalzi No
I’ve never understood why people want other people’s signatures.
I’ll stick with just buying the unsigned copies, thanks and let you spend your time writing or doing whatever you wish.
You could have a couple of helpers open the books for you so all you do is write. I mean they don’t give Hugos for book opening.
Looks like about 385 copies. Close?
Interesting coincidence…the “click this page” link sent me from from today’s book-signing picture to this: http://whatever.scalzi.com/2009/10/15/always-scribble-scribble-scribble-eh-mr-scalzi/
Still at it, but this time no feline comparisons.
For a moment those looked like stacks of scantrons, and I thought “Does he teach college in his spare time or something?” But then I realized they were books.
I see mine….right there!
Subterranean Press informed me today that mine is already on the way. It should be here before the formal release day. Thank you!
My first impression was punch cards! And no that’s not showing my age, they’re actually before my time.
These may sound like silly questions, but they are (partially) serious:
Do you somehow sign the Nook ones as well? Do they put a digital copy of your signature on the PDF or whatever and place it on the first page? Would it be worth anything?
Always scribble, scribble, scribble! Eh, Mr Scalzi?
If you squint, pic looks like punched card decks. –the horror, the horror….
