Last night I sat at the dining room table and signed books.
Earlier, I had made a list of 39 people that would be receiving one, or more, of me novels. When all the books came from the printer on the same day I decided to just sit down, sign and mail them all.
Twenty copies of Through Many Fires and Titan Encounter were going to winners of two contests I conducted. Other books were going to people who helped create them, such as Micah Hansen, who designs the covers, my editor Barbara Blakey, and beta reader William Childress. Many copies of A Time to Endure were heading for bloggers I've worked with in the past, reviewers, critique partners, and friends.
Most of the books were going to places in the United States, but some were going to Canada, Australia and the United Kingdom. I spent a good half-hour this morning getting to know the postal clerks in Napavine.
So, if I told you that a book was coming your way, I can truthfully say, it’s in the mail.
