The Uncle has once again come through, for those of you who have been waiting and wondering when you can pre-order your signed copy of Carousel Seas, the Thrilling Conclusion to the Archers Beach Trilogy by Sharon Lee. Carousel Seas will be published in January*, in trade paper format. Awesome cover art is by Eric L. Williams.
I have had some folks ask me why they should bother buying from Uncle Hugo’s, which charges “extra” (by which they mean “full price”), and here’s the answer: You don’t have to bother buying from Uncle Hugo’s; follow your bliss; buy from whatever store or vendor you like best. However, if you want a signed and/or personalized copy of Carousel Seas, Uncle Hugo’s is your only source.
So! The Rules, and Links:
* You may now pre-order a signed copy of Carousel Seas from Uncle Hugo’s Bookstore via this link
*You may also, for a limited time, have your pre-ordered signed book personalized. “Personalized” means you ask the author to write something special on the title page in addition to their name. These can be as simple as, “To Marge,” and as complex as “To Marge in memory of that night in Seattle.” Fair Warning: I, as the Signing Author reserve the right not to inscribe a book with a personalization I find to be, in my sole judgment: (1) offensive, (2) too long, (3) anything else. You will use the Special Instructions box on the order form to write out your personalization — Please check your spelling, ’cause I’m going to assume that you’ve typed it out exactly as you want it.
*There is a deadline involved if you want your pre-ordered signed copy of Carousel Seas personalized. That deadline is November 15, 2014. So you need to do this now.
*There will only be a limited number of signed copies of Carousel Seas available, they will only be available through Uncle Hugo’s SF Bookstore in Minneapolis. The exact number of signed copies available depends upon how many are pre-ordered. So, sooner is better than later to order, if you want a signed copy.
Thanks very much for your interest and support.
*For the purposes of this discussion, I am using “publish” to mean PUBLISHED IN PAPER FORMAT. Obviously, the eARC and the eBook editions will be published somewhat soon, same like always.
**The Uncle is doing me — and you! — a pretty substantial favor here, so please be courteous. While you’re there, look at the Lee-and-Miller page, to make sure you have All the Books! And! Look around the place a little, why not? There might be Even More Cool Books that you’ve missed.
