Monster Hunter Nation

I need a headcount. Who wants an autographed 1st printing of Monster Hunter Vendetta?

Well, the time is almost here.  MHV officially releases in just over a month.

In the past I’ve just sold autographed copies here on the blog, which is awesome for me, and (I would hope) awesome for you, but there is one drawback to doing it that way. My blog doesn’t report to any bestseller lists. And one of the keys to building a writing career is to have your books show up on various bestseller lists.  MHI made it onto Entertainment Weekly and also onto Locus, both of which are big deals.  I’d like to get MHV up there too.

So, for this release, I’m going to autograph the books, and then they are going to go to a major independent book store. You guys can then order them from this particular bookstore. (and they’re awesome, so you shouldn’t have any issues there).  You get an autographed first printing when it first comes out, and I get to boost my stats. 

Once I get the details ironed out with the store, then I’ll go ahead and post who it is, and all their contact information.  

But I’m going to need to get an approximate headcount first, so I know how many books need to come to me first so that I can sign them, before I then ship them to the bookstore. So what I’d ask is that if you want to do this, please post in the comments below how many you want. Please be honest, because I want this to work out for the bookstore as well so we can continue to do this for future endeavors.

If you’ve got a blog or friends that are MH fans, please help me spread the word. I’d really appreciate it.

Guest

I’d like one Larry.

Also, if you haven’t talked to Mysterious Galaxy Bookstore out in San Diego you really should. They are one of the best independent spec fiction book stores in the country. I know both Brandon Sanderson, Jim Butcher and Dan Wells have done signings there.

Guest

Sign me up for one–and I’ll need to place an order with you separately for the corresponding patches. (Not quite the same as a personally-inscribed copy, but I’m glad to help with your stats so that you have one more thing to shove down the Marxtards’/Twitards’ craws.)

[…] If you haven’t read the first book Monster Hunter International and like what you read here do yourself a favor and and buy the darn book already! It’s an “urban” fantasy that kicks the crap out of all those emo vampire books. Think Backwater going after monsters instead of terrorists and you’re halfway there. The good guys are good and the bad guys will scare the crap out of you until the good guys drop mortar rounds on them! Well, the time is almost here.  MHV officially releases in just over a month.
