Kudos to the folks at Henderson Creative for the design. Several forms of it (mainly different colors and angles of the guitar) will grace T-shirts, mugs, and other forms of swag. It and additional merchandise mentioned in the book--including buttons with slogans like “Feed the Need” and “Bite Me, I’m O-Positive"--will be available on the WVMPradio.com site when it goes live in May.
I'm thrilled to announce that on May 10, I'll be a spotlight author at Mysterious Galaxy's 15th Birthday Bash! MG is one of the nation's premier science fiction/fantasy bookstores. Other authors at the Bash will include Charlaine Harris, Susan Hubbard, Jeff Mariotte, Savannah Russe, Samantha Sommersby, and Robert Tenenbaum.
Why should you care, if you're not a San Diegoan? Because if you pre-order your copy of Wicked Game from them, you can ask them to have me sign and personalize it for you while I'm there. Just put "Please have Jeri autograph (and personalize to NAME, if you want it personalized, otherwise I'll just sign my name)" in the comment box when you order online, or say it out loud when you call them at 858-268-4747 to order.
For the online orders, let's say you should do it by May 8 to be safe. Also, put your name instead of the word NAME. Unless that's really your name, in which case, I'm sorry, in both senses of the word.
UPDATE 3/19: In all my excitement over the news, I forgot to announce the winner of the latest book drawing:
Congrats to Tom Gallier, who just won a copy of NIGHT LIFE! Tom, please send your mailing address to me at jeri AT jerismithready DOT com, and I'll pass it on to Caitlin.
Thanks to Caitlin for being a great guest and interviewee, and thanks to everyone who commented.
