My West Coast Book Release Party: Borderlands Books, on October 11th!

Heya, folks!

If you’ve been living under a rock, you may have missed that a) I sold a novel, and b) that novel is coming out on September 30th.

But what you do not know is that I will be holding an official West Coast Release Party for Flex at Borderlands Books in San Francisco on October 11th!  I’m psyched, because the one time I went to this shop (which specializes in fantasy, sci-fi, and horror), I totally fell in love.  A love I expressed judiciously with my credit card and a bent back, staggering out of that store with an absurd load of books.  To get to do a reading/Q&A/signing there is totes exciting.

(I’ll also probably go out for drinks afterwards and invite you along, just to spend more time with y’all.  I like people.)

You may ask, “Ferrett, what about an East Coast Release Party?  Or, you know, a Cleveland one?”  And I’m still researching those.  Locally, I have some friends who need a bookstore that’s wheelchair-friendly, which rules out a surprising amount of local bookstores (as it wouldn’t be a party without those friends).  And if you know of a good New York-based bookstore that’d be amenable to a weasel, let me know.

You may also ask, “Ferrett, what about a Florida Release Party, or a Southern Release Party, or a European one?”  And the answer is that “Ferrett has a limited amount of vacation time, and family to visit on both coasts.  These Release Parties are tremendously exciting but also a net loss in cash, as there’s no way I’ll sell enough books at Borderlands to fund the airplane trip to San Francisco – so alas, this is not so much ‘a book tour’ as ‘Ferrett thinks this would be fun to visit his mother and throw this in.'”  While I’d love to visit your home town, I don’t have that kinda money to burn.  Three stops is the max.

But you can still order Flex from any number of bookstores in advance.  Which would be nice.  Authors live or die on preorders, so if you’re not gonna attend a release party but wanna celebrate, you can do a little dance when Flex arrives on your doorstep.

    WAY! I LOVE THAT PLACE!
    So, down the street back towards Mission is Craftsman and Wolves who make this awesome savory muffin with a soft-boiled egg baked inside. If you go a few blocks past Mission there is Zeitgeist- home of the very best Bloody Mary I have ever had as well as burgers to DIE for!
    And sometimes the Tamale Lady shows up, but the city hassled her about not having a street food vendor’s license so I don’t know what’s going on with that but REGARDLESS! yummy foods in the vicinity of one of my very favorite places!
    How long are you going to be staying in the Bay Area before/after the event? (And feel free to email or msg me, you don’t need everyone knowing all your travel plans)
    I will make my best effort to come out and see you!
