Tomorrow on "Zach and Logan in the MORN-ing!" the SHADEboys are interviewing Lauretta Nagel from my favorite independent bookstore, Constellation Books
(Speaking of the SHADEboys, yesterday they held a Valentine's Day "Kilt-Off"--sort of like a "walk-off" from Zoolander
--to thank their readers for all their awesome support. It starts with this post
, with a link at the bottom of each leading to the next. It gets weird, even for them.)
In case you don't know, Constellation is the
place to get signed books by me. You can call 410-833-5151, or order online
and let Lauretta know in the comments how you want the book personalized. (Please allow a couple weeks for personalized copies, as the store is a half hour from my house, so one of us has to make a special trip, usually her, because I'm a hermit.)
International orders, please use the email link on the left sidebar of Constellation's website, and Lauretta will send you payment instructions.
(NOTE: I realize the online catalog now shows the new cover for the Shade paperback, but that won't actually be available until May 1.)
PRE-ORDERS FOR SHINE
If you pre-order Shine
, the books will be signed, personalized, and shipped the day the books arrive at the store
, which may be a week before the book officially releases on May 1. So by ordering from Constellation, you not only get a signed copy, but you might get it early!
INTERVIEW AND GIVEAWAY
The SHADEboys' interview with this lovely bookseller will take place on Twitter at 10:30am EST tomorrow, Thursday, February 16. The easiest way to follow/participate is to visit the #ZOGANam hashtag
at Tweetchat.com. Everyone who asks Lauretta a question will be entered to win a $25 gift certificate for her store.
Can't make the live chat? That's okay! Just leave your question here in the comments and I'll--I mean, the boys'll pass it on to Lauretta during the chat.
Deadline for entry: 10:30am EST Thursday, February 16. International entries welcome.
THE FUTURE OF ZOGAN
This might be the last "Zach and Logan in the MORN-ing!" chat for a while, even though the intention was to keep it going until Community came back on the air next month. I'm trying to catch up on the many, many things I fell behind on during the last deadline (including writing the next book), and all these fun special events take up time.
If you are
enjoying them, please tweet me
) and let "us" know! Not fishing for compliments or applause, just curious to know how many people out there are listening.
See you tomorrow!
EDITED TO ADD: Congrats to @BookishAndrea on winning the $25 Constellation Books gift certificate, and thanks to everyone who stopped by and asked Lauretta questions! You can now read the transcript of the chat, which had a strangely dramatic ending in which Logan went into--well, you'll just have to read it.
