Waistcoats & Weaponry SIGNED Copies for Pre-Order

Waistcoats & Weaponry is available for pre-order right now.

But there is something else, Gentle Reader. A little while ago I hinted at a scheme in the works that might take away the sting of being unable to pre-order this book through Amazon.

Well, in the middle of October 500 copies of W&W will be arriving at a secret location. I will pedal myself to said location on my bicycle of iniquity. Then I will spend 3 hours signing them all.

Then, you will be able to get a signed copy online through Barnes & Noble

 Pre-order now or risk the wrath of ten-thousand cheese pies. Or something.

So if you can't make any of the locations on my book tour this year, or you generally aren't the type, or you live in an out of the way spot: This is your chance. Ordinarily, I have a firm policy on no book plates and in person signings only (after all, if you take the time to come and see me you should get something special for your trouble). But I'm making an exception in extenuating circumstances.

Some answers to questions I think you may be asking:

Book News:
Lady Lauren's Panacea says of Etiquette & Espionage, “As a person who typically hates love-triangles, I would normally have been put off, but Carriger neatly sidesteps my preferences by making her heroine far too practical to fall into the usual trap. Both boys are fully-realized, lovable characters, but Sophronia has bigger things to worry about…. The Finishing School series is one of the few examples of an interracial couple in Young Adult fiction, particularly genre fiction….  their relationship adds layers of tension to the social aspect of the story. Carriger doesn't shy away from the realities of racism in Victorian England, nor does she sideline Soap as a -- well -- soapbox. He is who he is, and he is important…. Finally, amidst the mystery-solving hijinks are some girl-positive concepts that had me throwing it at my other friends.”

Quote of the Day:
“They are all the same! They know everything about everything, save, when it is to happen and how it can be stopped. My father was a man. I think I understand the sex.”
~ Cranford TV series (Miss Pole)
