OK, I should have said something about this sooner. But I was busy.

Just came back from Book Expo America in Washington, DC. A happening book fair, as exhausting and overwhelming as they are. But it went well in FIRST SECOND’s tiny little corner. Booksellers descended on our stocks like locusts — very friendly, encouraging ones! — and when Grady Klein showed up to sign his LOST COLONY, Book One, he was greeted with a long line that snaked away from the booth. Sorry, I didn’t take a picture.

But back to our pressing news item: Señor Grady Klein is signing Wednesday May 24th at the McNally Robinson Bookstore in Soho!

Besides getting a precious first edition signed copy, you’ll get Grady’s special embosser going ‘crunch!’ onto your title page, before he adds a little doodle of your favorite LOST COLONY character! The emboss stamps the words GUARANTEED AUTHENTICAL with the face of corrupt mayor A.H. Snodgrass.

They’re probably already showing up on eBay.

Tell everyone you know in New York!
