Tonight, 7:00 p.m. at the University Book Store in the u-district, Justine Larbalestier will be slinging by and reading from her killer new book Liar. IT WILL BE AWESOME. But don’t take my word for it. Come on out and see for yourself.
In other news, I’m going to be a busy, busy woman this week so posting might be light. But don’t forget: SteamCon starts this Friday. IT TOO WILL BE AWESOME. And I have to say, they’ve got a really strong, diverse panel track–especially for a brand new convention. It honestly impressed me with its lack of the same old “What is Steampunk?” fodder.
In other other news, there is no news on a “new” car yet. We checked out a couple more vehicles over the weekend, and were greatly disappointed with the TruthInAdvertisingFAIL and/or blasphemous pricing on vehicles that don’t actually run. It was pretty epic.
We even had somebody’s nosy neighbors call the cops on us while we were investigating a vehicle which (a). we’d called ahead about checking out, and (b). had been left on the street, partly so we could see it and partly because (c). it had a blown carburetor which they didn’t tell us until we were already on the way out there, and (d). amusingly enough, this RATHER SIGNIFICANT DEFECT only barely lowered the price oh HAHAHAH.
Ah, well. We’ve got a couple of queries in to a couple of other listings, so maybe something useful will dawn today. You never know. It could happen.
P.S. – Boneshaker‘s gathering Amazon reviews! Thank heavens. Anyone else who’s interested in doing likewise is more than welcome to do so, I assure you.
At the moment, Amazon is really one of the more reliable places from whence this book can be acquired; I’m hearing about it selling out and being reordered in a lot of places–which is a good problem to have, but still a problem. So if you’re having trouble locating Boneshaker, try Amazon (see above link), or try Tor.com, where it’s on sale for 30% off for the month of October.
If you’re local to Seattle, I happen to know first-hand that the B&N downtown has copies, the Borders downtown should have copies, and the Elliot Bay Bookstore has a few signed copies.*
