Borderlands Books is awesome. Seriously, it’s one of the very best bookstores I’ve ever visited. Alan and Jude are fantastic people, and the staff is frighteningly knowledgeable and yet completely friendly and accessible. My wife did an article about their sponsorship model last summer, and I’m glad to report they’re still going strong.
So when I say I’m excited to launch MJ-12: Inception with a little reading and signing there, you know I mean it.
MJ-12: Inception launches next Tuesday, Sept. 6, in hardcover, and I’ll be at Borderlands starting at 6 p.m. to do stuff. If there’s a big audience, I’ll do a formal reading and Q&A, and if we’re small but mighty, I’ll do the same…with less formality? Whatever. I’ll bring beer. It’ll be fun. If you’re in the Bay Area, I totally hope to see you there.
And if you can’t make it, well, I’ll be signing whatever they have on hand, and you can give ’em a call and have them ship a signed copy directly to you. They’re awesome like that.
Also, if you’re in the Bay Area, or even if you’re not and just like the idea of helping out fantastic SF/F bookstores, I strongly urge you to consider becoming a Borderlands sponsor. You’ll be supporting a key piece of the SF/F community — not just in San Francisco, but throughout the country.
One more note: the Goodreads giveaway of MJ-12: Inception wraps up tomorrow night at midnight. So if you haven’t signed up yet, do it!
