Monster Hunter Nation

Who wants an autographed copy of The Grimnoir Chronicles: Hard Magic?

It is almost time! So I need to get a rough head count. Hard Magic will be out in May. For those of you that don’t know, this is my alternative-history/epic-fantasy/adventure/pulp/noir/diesel-punk extravaganza. No BS, but I honestly think it is the best thing I’ve ever written.

When Monster Hunter Vendetta came out last year, I decided to steer all of the Monster Hunter Nation (i.e. you guys) that wanted autographed copies toward a store that reported to all the bestseller lists. We used Uncle Hugos because they were the bookstore that introduced me to Baen to begin with.

This turned out to be a Win-Win for both of us. MHV was the #1 bestseller and MHI was the #3 bestseller for them for the year. The large number of books sold at such an important indy store in one week helped boost me in the rankings enough that I ended up on the New York Times bestseller list.

So we’re going to do it again, only this time, we’re going to do it better.

Last time the books were shipped to me, I signed them and then I shipped the books to Uncle Hugos, and then he shipped them to you. Because of shipping times back and forth you guys didn’t get them as fast as I hoped. So this time I’m flying to Minnesota at the end of April and signing them all in person. Once I get back from Uncle Hugos, I’ll be spending two weeks doing signings in Utah, Phoenix, San Diego, LA, San Francisco, Portland, Seattle, Tacoma, and Boise.   

If you’ve not read the sample chapters of Hard Magic, the following link will take you to the first seven for free. Check it out.

http://jiltanith.thefifthimperium.com/site/book/TheGrimnoirChroniclesHardMagic/-/

What I need from you guys is to please post here to let me know if you want autographed copies, and how many you want of hard cover, and how many you want in trade paperback. Remember, there will only be a single limited run of hard covers, so when they are gone, they are gone.  Originally we were only going to have a trade paperback release, but it was becasue of the success of MHV that they squeezed in a run of hard covers too.

The trades are probably $15 and the hard covers are probably $25.  Please post how many of each kind you want in the comments below. Please be honest so we can get a good count, and if you know any Correia fans that don’t check this blog, please spread the word.

Thanks. -Larry

EDIT to clarify some questions.

1. Uncle Hugos ships to APOs and out of the US, no problem.

2. I will be doing a book signing at Uncle Hugos in person for the locals.

3. I will post again here when we are ready to start taking orders. It will go through their shopping cart and I’ll provide a link. Don’t worry, I’ll spam it across the internet. 🙂

4. There should be an E-Arc of TGC:HM, but I don’t know the date. They are doing the final typesetting and sticking the artwork in currently.

When you say “trade paperback” do you mean the larger, almost hardcover size paperback? or a “normal” paperback size, like MHI and MHV?

Thanks!

I’d like one. But i live in Australia so I’d need to know what the deal with postage would be. You know what would also be cool – A digitaly signed version, with your signature on a scanned copy of the cover that is numberd and bundled with the E-ARC from baen.

I’d bay a non significant amount of money for that.

I already have one of the paperbacks on pre-order from Amazon. Are you planning on having a signing at Uncle Hugo’s, or just going there to do the mass signing? Cause if it’s the former, you can definitely count me in for a hardcover and most likely count me in to show up in person for it (depending on my schedule at the time).

I like to collect series all in the same edition.

If you think there is a good probability of there being a hard back edition of every book in the series, I would like to get a signed hard back.

Otherwise, sign me up for a signed trade press edition.

Either way, I defiantly want one.

BTW, any chance of a signing up at the bookstores in Logan anytime soon?
