A few weeks ago I announced that I was signing 5,000 bookplates to go out for free to people who preorder my book – and who don’t live outside of the US, and who don’t have a PO box, and who aren’t left-handed dentists. (I may have made up that last one.)
Yesterday I finally finished and then all of my fingers fell off. But it was hugely relieving to be done and I decided to celebrate the accomplishment with a photo, which then became a three-part-series.
1. Me, after signing the 5,000th bookplate and then playing Jenga with them.
2. Me, after Victor pointed out that I’d missed a big box of bookplates and had at least 1,000 more to sign.
3. Me, innocently plotting Victors’ painful demise right after he told me that he was just fucking with me.
There are still a couple hundred signed bookplates that haven’t been spoken for so if you preorder a book make sure you go over here and fill out your info before they’re all gone.
Also, if you’re Canadian, there’s at least one Canadian-based contest going on right now. I’ll keep you posted on other stuff as it comes around.
A very special thank you to everyone who has bought or is planning to buy, borrow or steal my book. I owe you a drink. And a huge shout out to Doctor Who and The Guild, who made this long, strange ordeal distractingly awesome.
And now I will never sign my name again. Instead I’m just drawing pictures of cat faces. Get ready for the book tour, y’all. There’s gonna be a lot of kitty faces and confused autograph-seekers. Or possibly just me sitting alone while the bookstore cashiers look at me with pity and/or disgust. That’s a possibility too.
