    Book Promotion!

    Seems like the best venue. Mods relocate as needed.

    http://www.unclehugo.com/prod/ah-williamson-michael.php

    With the gracious and expert help of Uncle Hugo's Science Fiction Bookstore, we are starting the advance order for "Rogue." This is the first hardcover edition, and comes with a tipped in (glued) sheet printed by Baen, and signed by me. These will be cover price of $24, plus any shipping. You may pick up your copy at the store for no additional charge if you wish.

    Uncle Hugo's is one of the stores monitored by the New York Times Bestseller list, so copies here count toward my sales rank for that. Just think, you'll be able to tell lesser personages that you correspond, drink beer, or even shoot guns with a New York Times Bestselling author.

    In the checkout, you may also mention in the "instructions" how you'd like it personalized, and I'll try do that at the store, when I drive up in September for the release. I can't promise to get to them all, but will try my best, and of course, I can always handle special defacement at conventions or other personal meetings. (SIGNING DATE IS STILL IN DEVELOPMENT, EVEN THOUGH NONE IS LISTED, I PLAN ON IT)

    This means you'll have limited edition, personalized proof that a NYTBA actually knows your name, calls you by it, and has something particular to say, not just, "to my good friend," as the cliche goes. Your inscription might read, "You still owe me a beer from LosCon," or "I like Glocks, too, but I prefer the 1911," or even something cryptic such as, "NOTHING!!!" (You know what that means if you are who it's meant for.)

    I'll also try to have some extra goodies on hand for those in the area, and may slip some into the books, time and quantity permitting.

    You also get to add yet another rabid right wing, meat-eating, unPC gun nut to the roster of bestsellers. When Armageddon happens, which authors do you want on YOUR side?

    Click now, click often!

    Not to flame but how does
    We are taking advance orders for signed copies of his upcoming novel, Rogue. There will not be an in-store autographing; the books will be shipped to us pre-signed. Sorry, no inscriptions or personalizations are possible. There will be a limited number of signed copies; to ensure availability, please order no later than Saturday, April 30th. Your credit card will not be charged until your order is ready to ship (the book is expected to arrive around September 6th).

    They default to "no instore promotion" until details are worked out, so they don't promise what they can't deliver.


    I do plan to be there, and we're discussing dates now.

    They're very reputable. Don (owner) did most of the leg work on putting this together.

    They also won't charge until they ship.
