EASTERCON + GIVEAWAY

Hiya peeps! Just got back from eastercon and got a few goodies!! Righty yo! It was marvellous seeing some of my favourite authors! And a few embarassing moments :( , christ I couldn't believe the social faux pas I committed there!! I'm thinking, I shouldn't go to these events ever again... good thing Stephen Deas is so understanding... so there I was an over eager fan qeueing up to get my books signed... then it was finally my turn!! I ask Mr. Deas to kindly sign my copy of The Adamantine Palace, so he opens the book up to the title page, and guess what? It was already signed! I bought a book which he already signed!! I should have checked whether the copy I bought was a signed copy or not! Oh. My. God. !!! So I said sorry and beat a quick and hasty retreat... I so need to go home!! Mr. Deas was ever so nice about it, he just smiled and said something pacifying which I couldn't remember anymore. In my embarassment I forgot to get my copy of The King Of The Crags signed!! Can somebody please shoot me!

I did get my copy of Excession signed by Ian Banks... **squeeee**... and along with a whole boatload of books which I got signed by the authors! Yay!!!

Now it's time to share... the talented Mr. Joe Abercrombie signed for me the whole First Law trilogy! One lucky blog reader is going to take home the signed copy of The Blade Itself* (Book 1 of the First Law trilogy) for free!! All you have to do is say so in your comment that you want it. Easy peasy! But please leave a way for me to contact you in case you win or come back on May 17. This giveaway will run until May 16 and winner to be announced on May 17. Open worldwide. Eastercon is exhausting!

*Please note that the picture of The Blade Itself above may not be the same cover that you are getting in the giveaway. Above pic is stock image.

Oh dear ! I can imagine it must have left you rather red faced. But never mind, I am sure we have all had something similar happen to us at one time or another.

You don't say, but is the giveaway open worldwide ?

If so, please enter me.
Thank you.

Stephen Deas said...

It has been said to me on more than one occasion that the rare copies of The Adamantine Palace are the ones that I *haven't* signed... ;-)

Cherry said...

*Cherry is speechless*

Cherry said...

After I picked my jaw up from the floor, I have to say that I am astounded by the awesomeness of Mr. Deas' radar to have spotted my Little Miss Nobody blog post... thank you for being nice to an over eager fan, Mr. Deas!!

To everybody - all your names are in the pot!
