A few days ago, I walked around to my favorite indie bookshops in Old Town, Ft Collins, and signed their stock... so if you want to give an autographed copy of one of my books as a gift, and you live in this area, you can go to Old Firehouse Books, Matter Bookstore, or The Clothes Pony.
If you live out of my area, you can still get signed copies sent to you (or to your giftee)! Just go to the Old Firehouse Books website here (this links to The Queen of Water, but if you're looking for another one of my books, just scroll down on that page and write the title in the "search" field on the right sidebar.) I'll come into the store within the next few days and personalize the book to whomever you'd like! During checkout, in the "comments" section, note that you'd like an autographed copy, and the name you'd like me to sign it to. The only catch is that if you need these to arrive before Christmas, you need to order them by *Dec 15*!
If you are in Ft Collins, check out this great article (by Kerrie Flanagan, new literary arts columnist for the Coloradoan!) with recommendations for books by local authors-- it's a handy list for holiday shopping...
A brief update on the current craziness in my life, in case you're curious: We're in the midst of a GIANT house renovation, and, since it's taking longer than we'd initially thought, we have to move out of one rental home and into another this week. Not fun, not fun at all. (Our house will be ready in March.) Lil Dude calls our new apartment a "hotel"... and it will be a bit like a hotel since there's only one bedroom in it (but alas, no room service or indoor pool). Wish us luck!
Hope you're enjoying winter-- hopefully yours is more peaceful than mine. Time for me to have chamomile tea and sleep... Lil Dude will awaken me well before dawn, as usual. Sigh. Yawn. G'night...
