First off, and for the last time, today's the day!

Feel free to mention the signing in your own blog if you have readers who might be interested.
Also, that library donation thing. (I usually get at least one person responding to this per month, which is a good thing.)
I've decided this year that I will continue donating hardcover copies of my first two books to libraries. So, if your local library does not have the books, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with the address for the library and, if there is one, the name of the contact person for that library. If you aren't sure if your library accepts donations, or if you don't know if they have a contact person, a quick phone call to your library should provide the answer. So send in those addresses! I'll get the books mailed out ASAP.
I intend to do this all year, and hope to provide reminders at the end of each month. Unfortunately, I'll have to restrict the donations to US addresses only, due to the postage costs outside the US being rather high.
And speaking of hardcovers, if you'd like to buy the hardcovers but your local bookstore can't seem to get their hands on them, you can always get them from me. I have . . . a few copies sitting around. *ahem* Here are the prices:
The Skewed Throne: $15
The Cracked Throne: $15
The Vacant Throne): $20
I'd ask that if you'd like paperbacks that you get them from your local bookstore. That helps my sales record, and all bookstores should still be able to get their hands on all of the paperbacks with relative ease. However, if you've tried the local bookstore and just don't want to have them order them (or you'd REALLY like to have signed copies), I do have those available as well at $8 each. In addition, if you don't live near Binghamton, NY, but would like signed copies, you can contact my local Waldenbooks at (607) 798-7452 and arrange to have them signed for you and mailed to you.
All prices are for US addresses. I can give you a quote for the books for an address outside the US if you send me an email with the address you'd like them shipped to and then you can decide if it's worth it.
So, if you're interested in the hardcovers (or paperbacks), send me an email at email@example.com with what you'd like and we can figure out how to handle the payment. (I do have Paypal.) And of course, I'd be willing to sign the copies before mailing them out, personalized even, if you want.
And lastly, watch out for a giveaway in the next few weeks. The Skewed Throne is coming out in German on August 11th (in Germany, obviously) and I'm planning on a little something to celebrate, so watch this space!
