Two Exciting Upcoming Releases…and Where You Can Find Them Signed !

So there are two books coming out in the near future that I’m super excited about and I found places to pre-order signed copies!

The Passion of the Purple Plumeria (Pink Carnation, #10)The Passion of the Purple Plumeria (Pink Carnation #10) by Lauren Willig on August 6The House of Hades (Heroes of Olympus, #4)

AND  

The House of Hades (Lost Heroes #4) by Rick Riordan on October 8

If you’re like me, you can’t help but pre-order the books the minute they’re available online. And since I live in the middle of nowhere with absolutely no bookstores, I don’ feel bad about it.

However, I’ve only recently discovered that it’s not very hard to find bookstores where you can pre-order copies of books that are signed! So far I’ve only ordered signed copies through The Poisoned Pen (which is amazing! The books come covered and are packaged so they won’t get damaged.) and Barnes and Noble when they offer them (however, I received a signed copy from BN with a damaged dust jacket which I wasn’t too pleased about….).

This time I’m ordering  a signed copy Passion of the Purple Plumeria from the Poisoned Pen (Willig typically does signings here) and it seems like this one is only coming in paperback which is a bit disappointing since it won’t match the rest in the series….but oh well.

And I found a signed copy of Riordan’s The House of Hades on a site I haven’t used previously. I checked into the site and seems pretty legit so we will see how the book arrives.  The site I found it on is VJ Books. If any of you have used this site before let me know!

Let me know what sites you use to pre-order books from? Where do you purchase signed or collectible books from?

  1. If I preorder books I tend to do so through Amazon. That way I can save a few bucks and buy more :). However, I have found that lots of the books I have on my wishlist will be offered online through giveaways on various blogs so I tend to wait until the books come out to order. For signed books I try my local Indie bookstore first (to see if the are signed) and if not I look through Abebooks.com.

  2. I’ve never tried looking for giveaways of books I want! That’s a good idea…I haven’t ever been on Abebooks.com before either, I’ll have to check that out! Thanks for the ideas 🙂

  3. I want one! Thanks for the tip. 🙂 I get a lot of sign books through the bookstore that I work. We do have a few big-name authors doing signings occasionally, but most of mine come from random shipments. I don’t know how they end up here, but I snag them when they do. If I have a specific one I’m on the hunt for, I usually go through the authors website and/or get links by following them on Facebook. I’ve won a couple of contests, too, directly from the authors (but ironically have yet to win a single blog giveaway even know and do them all the time – figures) those were the best ones because I got to correspond with them directly – which I guess an author signing would do, but I always get nervous and tongue-tied. lol

    • You’re lucky you get some at the book store! That’s a great idea to go directly through the authors website…I hadn’t thought of that.
      Lol I understand the getting tongue tied around authors though! The ones I’ve met (through the library and signings I’ve gone too) always make me so nervous!
      Oooh…i’m starting Pure tonight too! Have you started it yet?

  4. VJ books is amazing! In my opinion it is better than Amazon. The books arrive and flawless condition and there is excellent costumer service. I ordered the same book, good luck!
